Abstract: This dataset explores the profound thematic connection between human yearning for a destined individual and the timeless pursuit of union with the divine, as depicted in poetic expressions and Christian mysticism. The speaker's longing for a figure "brought by fate" is interpreted metaphorically, signifying a quest for divine union, a fundamental theme recurrent in Christian mystical traditions. The dataset delves into the conceptual framework of convergence towards a limit in mathematical terms, aligning this principle with the spiritual journey towards union with the divine. Symbolically represented as Union(t) in the dataset, this mathematical expression encapsulates the approach towards unity with the divine at time 't'. The function f(x) embodies the evolving process or path leading to this union, gradually converging towards a limit as time progresses. By intertwining poetic metaphors and mathematical concepts, this dataset aims to scrutinise the human quest for spiritual union with God. Through an interdisciplinary approach, it seeks to correlate literary expressions with mathematical principles, offering insights into the soul's yearning for divine union as a timeless, evolving pursuit. The dataset facilitates a deeper understanding of spiritual themes through the lens of mathematical abstraction, inviting scholarly exploration and analysis across diverse disciplines like literature, theology, and mathematics.
