Considering Analitical-Holistic Synthesis approach one methodology very promising for analyzing any communication that has a form of a conversation, the first part of this paper deals with the work and life of EUGÈNE IONESCO as a useful tool. The value this approach is in making statistics useful in dealing with conversation analysis. Using it to map out other conversations, or real life situations, real life reports, other pieces of literature, etc. Just to see what outcomes one gets. Applied in Poetry for example and in short plays of EUGÈNE IONESCO also, it looks as a great tool for analysis of literary dialogs to show the writers' genius of skillfully weighing characters' in a whole.
In the second part, applying the above mentioned methodology it is concluded that Foursome, a short piece is a metaphor for multiple and conflicting elements within a single human character. The applied method proves a writing genius of Ionesco, who knew that in order to get his point across--of irreconcilable contradictions within human nature--he had to balance the three characters out. They had to be equal in order to be irreconcilable. Just like the situation in the Balkans, no one wins and the ethnic war never really ends.

Thanks to the Romanian academician Edmond Nicolau and British professor Stafford Beer I am also cybernetician but I was always fascinated by the wonderful role of statistics for studying quantitative aspects of qualitative findings to bring out aspects of the diversity of phenomena and also by the discovery of essential variables of a process and their strong or weak relationships, real or illusory appearances, hidden or spurious combination, their positive or negative interactions.
