Fibonacci was onto something. There is an inherent beauty in mathematics. At least for me, there is. Without it, we wouldn’t have some great amenities.
There are some fantastic, old-ass inventions that required mathematics without the aid of any TI or Watson. As a result, today there is mind-blowing mathematics at work!
Some of my favorites include:
- Euler’s Spiral, which is used every day by DOT departments.
- Fibonacci’s Numerical Sequence; 4H members know all too well.
- Levers, without which these would not be in existence.
- Exponents, which we rely on for military operations to financial operations.
No doubt today’s Mathematics look to bring us into the Twenty-Second Century, hopefully at an exponential rate.
So, without mathematics, we would all be cavelings.
Irrational, bipedal meat-sacks is a life we can look forward to without mathematics. I for one am glad we live in a day and age where lasers, microwaves, air conditioners and heaters exist. They exist because history’s yester-folk decided enough was enough. Therefore these people found a problem, used numbers, and solved said problem.
