Quality and Quantity

I suppose everything has a quality to it. The measurement may have differences in character. These differences may be, for example, in sweetness or hardness. The quantity, in most cases does not change the quality. If I have a hard rock and increase my rocks to 100 rocks. The rocks do not become harder. If I decrease the number to 50 rocks that does not mean the rocks are half as hard as the 100 rocks. I still have hard rocks. If I take the square root of 100 rocks I now have ten hard rocks.

Here is my point.

If I am bitter and cut it in half or take the square root of my bitterness I am still bitter. Making the quantity less does not make the smaller quantity not bitter.
