The Wonder of Maths

Some discussion on the MoQ Discussion Board about the wonder of maths underlying basic (quantum) physics and hence life, the universe and evrything else.

Picked up this link to Ray Girvan (Apothecary’s Drawer), on the wonder of maths (in real life) as an antidote to Billy Connolly’s rant about “f**ing algebra”.

Suspect his valid point may have been “Can anyone see the point of f**ing algebra – the way it is taught, as a subject disconnected from real life.”

Anyway, only just noticed today that Ray’s byline refers to “the triple point of science, arts, and culture” – I like that.
