There’s a reason why we learn math. It’s not just to know how to do basic arithmetic or calculating the speed of train A and train B. Mathematics is important to us on a much deeper level. Philosophically speaking, math can explain the building blocks of existence and giving us the answers to the questions that we seek. Like what is the meaning of life? Yet being apart of the answer to those problems is essential to what we are without realizing it.
Being an Architecture student, I’ve taken into account how many structures, objects and things can be broken down into simple shapes that are much simpler than their complexity portrays. The basic shapes being circle, square and triangle; each can describe the function of the form and yet help mold its essence at the same time. But the same can be said living things as well. Great architects of our time have found inspiration and learned lessons from the world they live in and the forms created by nature. Whether you contribute it to God or evolution, there is definitely a rhyme and reason why everyone is created. It has a basic understanding of how everything behaves and acts in this world. Universally there are planets, stars and other phenomenal astrological things that also follow some sort of rule when moving and reacting to each other.
It is like there is a formula that is being followed for each and everything that is being. We have a formula for shapes, we have formulas for applying to certain ideas of force, energy, and everything else that is important in making life move and take action. We can have formulas applied to our workplace; in the jobs we do, in the economy we depend on, and the studies we research. Everything that is important has a formula, whether we acknowledge it or remain ignorant of it. The basic underbelly of math is always existent in us, for us and all around us. Life can be explained through mathematics, and all the complex ways of existing can be simplified just like a fraction if we only recognized this basic understanding. Why is it that mathematicians during the renaissance and throughout history are the same people who have contributed to everything we know about science, life, religion, the universe, the world, our bodies, the nature, and everything else that benefits us or teaches our mind for today?
Human beings have a hole in themselves that they can’t fill. We continually search for truth and reasons to why we exist and why things work like they do. We can change whatever aspect of what we discover, but when you go to the root of the cause, the answer can only be explained by the mother of all the sciences; mathematics. The matrix of our life isn’t as incoherent as most think. It can be solved, but it requires patience, a bright mind, and an enthusiasm to learn. Through math we can achieve total understanding of ourselves, and the universe that we live in; which can solve many problems that we created for ourselves.
Here’s an Abecedarian I wrote in the past in regards to Mathematics.
Math is a form of art that is equivocally misunderstood
About why we learn it, and for what purpose we
Take in its approach of learning the mysteries of life
History offers what we already know
Einstein, Pythagoras, Bernoulli and the rest - paved the way
Math is the future for what we don't know
Algebra, calculus and physics - We like to spurn
Trigonometry, geometry and statistics - not hard to learn
Integers, inequalities, fractions and decimals
Calculating each problem can only help
Society, by finding the meaning of life through mathematics
