Truly an amazing experience, the topic of choice was equizonal ovaloids. The “math talk” was conducted by my current Linear Algebra and Differential Equations professor using nothing but knowing acquired from Calculus I, II, and III, and it’s geometric implications in 1-D, 2-D, 3-D, and higher dimensions. While most of the mathematics presented was more than familiar to me (potentially embedded in my DNA), it was applied in ways I could even fathom (or let alone come up with). I think that I am starting to truly appreciate mathematical beauty for its abstraction and mystery. It is almost as if I have some sort of spiritual connection with number, arbitrary constants, variables, and equations alike. I still want to know more. Until I know it all (which will never happen), I shall continue my quest to truly understand the mathematics of this universe and possibly (hopefully) others.
