I agree, that doesn't make any sense. It's not even wrong.

Scientific equations make sense in the terms put into them and the units used. I can figure out how much energy a 100W light bulb running for an hour uses calculating 100W * 3600 seconds = 100J/s * 3600 seconds = 360,000J = 360 kilojoules. That makes sense. It all works out and the units are right and match up.

But the equation in the OP? How do you add will to energy? Are they both definable or measurable in units like joules? If not, you can't add them. If so, then how do you define or measure "will" in terms of units of energy? What does it mean to multiply the result by "soul"? Is soul something you can

*multiply by*? Why multiply by infinity?

Does the right hand side always just equal "ghosts"? Not 1 ghost or 2 ghosts or 25% chance of a ghost? How you quantify the terms in the left of the equation to give a coherent result on the right that can be used to test against reality?

As it is, without further explanation, I can't figure out at all what it means or is trying to say. Can the OP elaborate on the meaning of the equation and how it came to be?
