Question

This riddle contains four

The first two are nearly the same for which you most likely have the first

and because of this you must have the second.

The last two are paradoxical opposites for if you have the third

you have and don't have need of the fourth.

If you have the third, well then you certainly have the first two.

If you have the fourth you want the first, or at least the second.

What are we?

numbers 1,2,3, and 4

if you have 1, you can make 2: 1+1

if you have 3, you have 1+2, and you can easily make any other number with sums/products of 1,2, and 3 but 4 could be useful

and if you have 4, you could make this from 1 and 3, so you want the first, or from 2 and 2, so you would want the second also

i can't believe i'm posting such a bad idea, but it is all i can come up with so far :huh:

That's very clever.
