To quote Marlowe: "all is dross that is not Mathema...."
I can't tell you how I kick myself for not diving into all of this long long ago. I suppose that Logos/Word has been good to me, but mathematics is such an ideal universal language, a world of absolute form....I am humbled before the sight of Math Mountain.
I know this is a philosophy forum, but philosophy and math are quite related. "Let no one ignorant of geometry enter here." Math is arguably the ideal toward which philosophic logos tends. (As philosophy tends toward math, philosophy = yes!!!!)
I just bumped into this strange thing, which is another relation of e and pi. t ties in to probability calculations. Gaussian integral - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
And what got me started down this road was researching this: Euler's identity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At first it just boggled my mind. But a little research into radians, trig, wilder forms of exponentiation got me closer to processing this little gem.
I've spent many an hour reading modern art aesthetic theories & many an hour perusing art books. Much of it seems boring all the sudden. The best math seems like ideal form, a form with unmatched precision and efficiency.
This is a long post, but I hope someone out there will simply share my enthusiasm. I'm no expert, but rather an abid if not rabid student. I'd be grateful for anything the more exposed can share with me.
