# It could be disturbing

The following rebus is one that should be very familiar to a great number of people, but may require an unexpected thought process.

$(\huge ma$$)\ \epsilon \ 1$
$\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \wedge$

• Aww... I was hoping this was a Rogue Squadron puzzle. May 18, 2016 at 23:23

The force is strong with this one.

Force = mass * acceleration (ma)

The (ma) is really big and strong.

The epsilon is for sets. The (ma) is with the 1.

The 1 is "one" and the arrow (or wedge) is pointing to "this one".

Interesting note: In the edit text the up arrow is called a wedge. The OP has a hidden comment in the text that says:

No, Biggs and Wedge aren't part of this. Quit looking at the edit screen.

It's a reference to two of the pilots that flew with Luke in Red Squadron.

Rogue Squadron was a group formed by Luke for doing other missions.

The Rogue Squadron book series that came out in the 90's. Now I have my summer reading set of me.

• I thought that, but the epsilon?? May 18, 2016 at 23:43
• Yeah I can't explain it yet either :) May 18, 2016 at 23:49
• Maybe OP meant to use \in rather than \epsilon? Wait, that's still not a with...

• I think this must be right; perhaps the OP misremembered the quotation as "... in this one". (The set-membership symbol was actually originally an epsilon, short for "is" in Latin, Greek, etc.) May 19, 2016 at 0:15
• @GarethMcCaughan I find your lack of faith (in OP) disturbing ;) May 19, 2016 at 0:35

The arrow, this, points to the one, epsilon means a small quantity, a range in parentheses does not include the endpoints, $F=ma$ force is effort.
