Math might be hard, but, occasionally, it can also be tasty.

And as a former die hard mathaphobe, I am coming around completely to the "true" idea that everything we are, everything around us, everything, essentially, can be expressed via mathematics. That is, the world is mathematics, and it is only the incredibly powerful interface that is our brain that allows us to experience this world as we know it. In other words, the brain is simply a translation tool, converting the pure realm of math into things like colors, sounds, smells, electrical impulses, etc. After all, a sunset is really just a bunch of radiation at different wavelengths being filtered by the atmosphere - it could all be expressed numerically. Or, as we usually prefer, poetically.
