Accidentally tread on someone’s face As you run for president again Make sure their features are unclear,erased Knowingly tread on the human face It’s not evil, it is just bad taste The devil is a clown, we feel no strain Incidentally tread on someone’s face As you run for president again
Axes are useful, real and imaginary.Does our earth have them? Borrow one in sums.Not nice.Arithmetic sucks Calculus is based on non-understanding of first principles which may not be understandable like certain j Drawing graphs is an art and a science. Euclid has frightened some and delighted others.And a right angle to you as well. Flatland is a book set in an imaginary two-dimensional world.Fractions frighten Geometry gave way to algebra.Godel studied axiomatic systems. God was a Word not a number……. think about it. Hard as maths is, there is a non-sensual beauty in there somewhere It takes your mind off the pain when you try to visualise 4 dimensions.Be aware some never return. Jokes are not often found in our textbooks except the biggest.. that God likes jigsaws, geometry and juggling. Kurt Godel went mad.He proved maths cannot have a complete set of axioms with no contradictions.So don’t go there Logic is not identical with mathematics. Multiplication tables were sung by children at school in the past.Matrices are rows and columns of numbers. Number theory is harder than one would imagine from counting one’s digits. Operators are imaginary concepts which have an effect on other imaginary concepts which then contribute to nuclear physics, and a few other things like the end of the world.

Theorems can be interesting if you know why you are learning them Why? Why indeed.Wranglers are top mathematics students at Cambridge. X or x is often the unknown we look for. Y is like X just by historical usage Zero as a concept with a sign is more abstract than One.Hence its late arrival on the human scene. Nothing can be symbolised. Ain’t that wonderfulStraight lines can meet.Straight lines can meet.Straight lines can meet.
