Most things can be defined by maths, but not necessarily be mathematical.. so not looking for maths where there is none, so conceptualising them in terms of mathematical-prose instead.

What was it he said, that made you think that..?

He came up with a mathematical formula for attraction - simple but effective - general:

Based on masculine/feminine psychosomatic traits.

An individual with 40% masculine energies and 60% feminine ill be attracted to an individual with a corresponding 60%/40% split.

I've adjusted this formula to include an individual's self-acceptance and self-love.

Those who like themselves - and do not only claim to, loudly and repeatedly, compensating for a secret self-hatrd - will be attracted to those most like them; those that secretly, unconsciously, resent themselves and what and who they are, will be attracted to their opposite.

Masculine/Feminine is a product of specialization, sacrificing independence for efficiency and effectiveness.

So, codependence is unavoidable. We are attracted to our sexual opposite because we are incapable to reproduce independently.

So Weininger's psychosomatic formula of attraction can be adjusted by the ego's self-awareness and consequent self-accetance and self-appreciation.

Individual's sometimes override their impulses with an over- under-estimation of themselves.

Know Thyself.

Also part of the gene/meme dynamic.

This is what the average call 'man's complexity' ...turning to "experts" - icons, idols, astrology etc. - to simplify what they cannot fully understand.
