Sometimes the insight that one can get from mathematics can feel like magic. If you allow yourself to follow the logic, you can find constructs in different areas of mathematics that seem to be unrelated to each other that somehow fit with each other in a logical and intellectual way that feels as real as any physical experience – like something you can touch and feel. Perhaps one can find a way to really begin to appreciate how the truths of math and science are foundational to our lives these days. Sadly, there are easier paths to other kinds of “beliefs”, paths that seem to require less effort to follow, which in the end can turn out to be very destructive to our collective existence.
