Maths Crazy!

Over the past few weeks I've gone maths crazy! I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really love mathematics. Its the most fun ever, its so big, so understandable, so god damn lovely. It has the power to confuse, to inspire, to repulse and tom ake you seem quite smart, even if you're not.

My passion for rigourous mathematics has really come to a head over the past few weeks, to the point that when a lecturer says: "I will not prove this, I will just assume the result" it really cuts me deep inside. How can we hope to understand, let alone trust the maths, if we don't have a proof. Argh!

I got into a few philsophical discussions about maths over the past week, and one point that was debated was if mathematics was part of the very fabric of the universe, interesting.
