Excerpt from the movie “Proof”

Let X equal the quantity of all quantities of X
Let X equal the cold
It is cold in December
The months of cold equal November through Feburary
There are four months of cold and four of heat
Leaving four months of indeterminate temperature
In February it snows
In March, the lake is a lake of ice
In September, the students come back and the bookstores are full
Let X equal the month of full bookstores
The number of books approaches infinity
As the number of cold approaches four
I will never be as cold now as I will in the future
The future of cold is infinite
The future of heat is the future of cold
The bookstores are infinite and so are never full
Except in September
