Hmm. Some Food for Thought:

"Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas. One seeks the most general ideas of operation which will bring together in simple, logical and unified form the largest possible circle of formal relationships. In this effort toward logical beauty, spiritual formulas are discovered primarily for the deeper penetration into the laws of nature." -- Albert Einstein.

Hmm. On the Nature of Things:

Two of the most important fundamental ideas in science are the Periodic Table of Elements and the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic.

Stable matter is made of atoms, and integers are made of primes. Matter is described by its wave-particle nature, and integers are also described their wave (zeros of the Riemann Zeta Function)-particle (primes) nature. And spectrum analysis detects unique atoms as well as distinct primes... Go figure!

Some Food for Thought:

"Thinking in the sense of programs instead of equations opens up a new kind of science." -- Stephen Wolfram, 2002.

"The deepest and most elementary and therefore still unresolved problem in mathematics today has nothing to do with geometry or integers: it's about the calculation." -- Christos H. Papadimitriou, 2007.

On Human Genius:

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”
― E.F. Schumacher.

“The only genius that's worth anything is the genius for hard work.”
― Kathleen Winsor.

“The true genius shudders at incompleteness — imperfection — and usually prefers silence to saying the something which is not everything that should be said.”
― Edgar Allan Poe, Marginalia.

“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.”
― Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

“The most tragic thing in the world is a man of genius who is not a man of honor.”
― George Bernard Shaw.

"I have witnessed living geniuses at work, and in all cases, they were my best teachers."
― David Cole.

Wow!! Grand optimization implies grand unification, and grand unification implies grand optimization. Go figure! And Go Blue! :D

The beautiful and grand nature of things demands beautiful and grand mathematics to describe her (nature). The great Richard Feynman was right about the beauty and truth in science!

For the strong nonbelievers (those who strongly disbelieve the existence of Lord GOD or who strongly believe that Lord GOD is irrelevant...), please ponder and take to heart the following quote by Immanuel Kant,

"... there is a GOD precisely because Nature itself, even in chaos, cannot proceed except in an orderly and regular manner."

"The mathematician’s patterns, like the painter’s or the poet’s must be beautiful; the ideas like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way. Beauty is the first test: there is no permanent place in the world for ugly mathematics." -- G. H. Hardy, a great mathematician.
