How to use "Cartesian product" in context?

Philosophers have long debated what gives something its essence. One theory, called the cartesian product, maintains that essence lies in the combination of the parts. This theory is best illustrated by the example of two plus two. The sum of two pieces of paper is four, because the addition of the two pieces results in an increase in quantity. But what if I combine the two pieces of paper into a single sheet? The sheet of paper has four pieces of paper on it, but it also has the combined quantity of two pieces of paper.
