Hmm, I don't know if this will help at all, but maybe if I'm understanding this correctly...

But let's say the equation 1 + 1 = 2. Now going to a more logical standpoint instead of mathematical. One could maybe compare this to apples. Say you picked 1 apple from a tree, you currently only have 1 apple. Now, what happens when you pick another apple. This gives you two apples. Now when talking about math, it is moreso non-existent, the numbers are just that, numbers. But in order to understand this concept logically, one can compare to the above example as I just gave. Though I am not fully sure if this is what you're actually asking or not...
