It was KG,

And

I was very lazy.

Not instinctively so,

But

Because it was all so easy.

Suddenly I was in Class I!

And

I was very simply terrorized!

Enter mathematics class!

And

I was so confused!

Why the hell 1 and 1 became 2

And

Not 11???!!!

Then came calculus,

And

It was everywhere!!!

dy/dx, d^2y/dx^2 and d^3y/dx^3

And

Their integrations!!!

I chose science just for science

And

Not for mathematics!

However, a voice told me

That

*Science can't exist without mathematics!*

And I am a science lover.

And

I was very lazy.

Not instinctively so,

But

Because it was all so easy.

Suddenly I was in Class I!

And

I was very simply terrorized!

Enter mathematics class!

And

I was so confused!

Why the hell 1 and 1 became 2

And

Not 11???!!!

Then came calculus,

And

It was everywhere!!!

An idea that everything has an answer

defined by a set of numbers all together

letters and ideas mesh with them

creating all that is and will ever be

a solution to all even if it isn't found

the ability to make new variables

to make sense of all the nonsense

symbols that make up the connection

such comfort in knowing this now

that everything has a defined answer

no guesses and no wish wash maybes

a yes and a no a right and a wrong one

mathematics can solve all of it for us

math is everywhere and that is lovely

defined by a set of numbers all together

letters and ideas mesh with them

creating all that is and will ever be

a solution to all even if it isn't found

the ability to make new variables

to make sense of all the nonsense

symbols that make up the connection

such comfort in knowing this now

that everything has a defined answer

no guesses and no wish wash maybes

a yes and a no a right and a wrong one

mathematics can solve all of it for us

math is everywhere and that is lovely

I'm not very good at math, but I thinks it's beautiful. The idea that everything in life has a defined straight forward answer. It's in chemistry, physics, medicine, statistics, and even in our language formats. It's nice to know there is something that will always have a right or wrong answer. There isn't any guessing or risks if you do it right.

Elliptic Parallel Postulate Haiku

I am a point P

I want a parallel please!

Oh, there’s none for me.

Hyperbolic Parallel Postulate Haiku

I am a point P

There so many parallels

At least 2 for me!

Euclidean Parallel Postulate

I am a point P

Elliptic? Hyperbolic?

No, just 1 for me!

Today we will be talking about advanced mathematics.

Let out your primal screams now.

It almost seems as if mathematics are a histamine to most people,

But mathematics is omnipresent in every interaction between two universes.

Mathematics is obscenity. We know it when we see it.

Mathematicians are the teenage girls in the back of a borrowed Toyota Camry

Demanding to know “what are we?”

Most people feel the tense shrug and the stiff arm of her companion.

Mathematicians feel the swagger of a braggart uncle at the watermelon-spitting contest.

Demanding more precision than everyone else at the party.

And at the same time they are the children standing up to the bully saying

“My dad can beat up your dad.”

And hoping their opponent doesn’t say “Prove it.”

They always say prove it.

There was a time where proofs were guarded in secrecy.

When braggart mathematicians,

the dogs of rival states who lusted after academic supremacy but not knowledge,

claimed they could prove things without proofs.

Where even a jot in the margins of a notebook done with enough pomp made you a god.

The mathematics eventually rebelled against loose proofs and found its true ecstasy,

Rigor.

Rigor is what separates mathematics from the beasts.

Science dictates the rules of our planet,

and daresay our entire dimension.

However, even scientists struggle with math.

Scientists view mathematicians as,

well, masochists is the wrong word.

I guess scientists acknowledge mathematicians the way most sports view cross country runners. Mathematicians relish doing the parts other scientists do as punishments.

But math is an obscenely illuminating and beautiful subject.

Mathematics needn’t be scary.

Mathematics is really the study of sets.

Sets are the piles of objects curated by the lonely.

The horde exhibits consistent rules.

Every object can be related and grouped with every other object

As can two people find some common ground.

These connections map to constellations across papers meaning more than the papers

And the time they take to construct

We are all connected.

Whether we join each other up or bend down to meet someone where they lay,

We are escaping the void of an empty set.

And the laws of mathematics steady with the same consistency all through whatever ordeal

The chef has challenged diners with today.

There are always rules, and the rules can be trusted.

In this set, joining and meeting are always the same.

They are Idempotent, meaning an operation sticks.

One and done.

Idempotency is the effective lesson which is learned exactly once and remembered forever,

Like the cat who jumps on the hot stove exactly once.

If the definition of insanity is the repetition of a single task over and over again

while expecting different results,

Idempotency is the opposite of insanity.

The human race is one huge set.

Idempotency is how we interact with other people.

It is meeting someone where they are.

We can all be a little better than we were before.

Idempotency is inviting them to raise each other up and join them in the journey.

is full of nonsense:

summing up my parts,

contradiction is the quotient

and the remainder is a hole

I fail to fill

my thoughts don’t add up;

questions make fractions

that multiply themselves

of their own will

regret is the exponent

when decision is the base

and even the best results

are some digits out of place

We are like skew lines

We are not parallel

But we can't intersect as well

We are not parallel

But we can't intersect as well

FYI

In three-dimensional geometry, skew lines are two lines that do not intersect and are not parallel, because they lie in different planes.

They say 2+2 = 4.

But 2 +2 = 5 is also right.

Why?

What is 2?

Is two two? Or is it two?

Does two two have to equal 4?

or does two two can be two three?

Albert Einstien said otherwise.

Thats why he died.

****** said yes.

Thats why everyone hates him.

We variations

Striations of the light

We still

seek each other

With

all of our might

all of our might

Til we collide

You and I

No

visible collision

No thing to measure

'Cause we're

Endless

Infinite

No

separation

No

division.

The thought of death, it pushes me harder

Because overworked bodies don't last longer

This equation backfired because now I'm stronger

Now I'll have to experience the pain for much longer.
