So, AF members and anyone else, why do you like math? Also, please feel free to share your lack of interest or dislike for math too.  Thanks.

What is an intellectual type person ?

Because you don't know how to count zero clicks?

One thing I have to say though, what you encounter under the name of Mathematics in high school is not yet quite the real deal. The real thing is much better,  grander than I can grasp, goes deeper than I can imagine, and never seems to end. I could spend the rest of my life exploring algebra, differential geometry and algebraic topology, maybe even prove some new theorems, and wouldn't get bored. It's insane. It's like this infinite elegant architecture that we just find lying before us.

That was poetic lol. I like it!  Smile

Yeah I was gonna say. . . he may not be teaching his best subject! Big Grin
