well, 2 plus 2 equals 4, so sum of 4 could be 1, or 2, or 3

 

it couldn't be 4, because that wouldn't be sum of 4, that would be all of 4

 2+2==4. It’s a bit boring, but hopefully the way was somehow enlightening. Anyhow, 2=𝑆(𝑆(0))2=S(S(0)) and 4=𝑆(𝑆(𝑆(𝑆(0))))4=S(S(S(S(0)))).

2+2=𝑆(𝑆(0))+𝑆(𝑆(0))⟹2+2=S(S(0))+S(S(0))⟹

2+2=𝑆(𝑆(𝑆(0))+𝑆(0))⟹2+2=S(S(S(0))+S(0))⟹

2+2=𝑆(𝑆(𝑆(0))+1)⟹2+2=S(S(S(0))+1)⟹

2+2=𝑆(𝑆(𝑆(𝑆(0))))=4
