What’s that all for? part I
IF YOU AREN’T INTERESTED IN DISCOVERING THE RULES OF NATURE OR YOU HATE SCIENCE JUST IGNORE THIS POST.
Very often when I study Math, when I try to harness it power, I find the reasons why to do it. Moreover, I believe that nothing could ever exist without Math. Math is everything.
“Nature’s great book is written in mathematics.” Galileo
Try to communicate without Math, I wish you good luck. That’s because Mathematics holds logics, symbol interpretations, relations and many more necessary things. I’ll give you 100$ (I don’t have even more recently 😉 ) if you point me at a thing proven of its own existence by an experience that can receive anybody and which cannot be explained with math. What are we talking about?! We aren’t even able to explain anything without using MATH. Even when you look at a chick walking down the pavement you apprise her abilities and her look. *Somehow the correct dimensions were put into our heads and we use our built in and developed through years comparison engine to mark the girl as attractive or not. Many people are skeptic and they ask me how numbers can explain their feelings. They truly don’t know Math. Mathematics were born from numbers, but… I would like to quote a Polish Philosopher:
“Wy nie wiecie co to jest matematyka! wy myślicie: liczby, liczby! Nie! A ona śpiewa, gra jak kryształ. Cała dusza tonie w dźwięcznym, przejrzystym krysztale”… (“You don’t know what’s mathematics about! You think: numbers, numbers! No! She sings, she plays like crystal. All spirit sinks in vibrant, transparent crystal“) Stanisław Brzozowski
When after a minute, hour, day, week, month or even years of thinking you’ll find the truth hidden in equations and the subtle structure of connected everywhere objects you’ll understand that you don’t need magic, you don’t need god ’cause you are already at the source. It’s funny that people are able to believe in gods that are different in every civilization when meantime the only connection between those civilizations was SCIENCE, Science built on MATH. And the most funny thing are the adjectives given to god. What does – almighty– or even worse – good- mean?! How it helps to describe such thing as god? What sense makes singing and standing in church? As a Mathematician I don’t have to think about this kind of questions. I have other things to do.
*Somehow – we can create a conjecture based on logic thinking and Physics how it really works, but It’ll take place in future coming posts
