it makes me so so sad that so many people are deterred by a shitty education system from realizing just how beautiful and incredible maths is and how many aweinspiring wonders they’re missing out on like, you just have to take prime numbers as an example!!
prime numbers (numbers that are only divisible by 1 and themselves) have been studied for so long (centuries!) and yet people still don’t understand the pattern by which they function
which makes the fact that they’re the basic building blocks of all other integers so incredible because it means that mathematics which, as a discipline, is built around patterns, order and clear defined rules, literally rests upon something that doesn’t seem to follow any of those things!!
and yet, despite our complete inability to ascertain the exact method by which they are dispersed among non-primes, if you graph their appearances (and there always are more primes, even if you theoretically counted to infinity), the curve is almost impossibly smooth and regular, which suggests there is some sort of pattern underneath the chaos that we just aren’t able to see yet
even more amazingly, twin primes (pairs of prime numbers that are separated by another number) may become rarer and rarer the higher up you count, but there is always eventually another pair of twins to be found no matter how long the empty stretch before that was
it’s so so so beautiful that in an attempt to bring structure into our universe (and that’s what mathematics is, the attempt to explain the laws that govern everything that exists), we’ve stumbled upon the fact that its very essence seems to both obey no law at all and exhibit a regularity that borders on scary
“there is no such thing as a complete lack of order, only a design so vast it appears unrepetitive up close”
know man, I just decided to go with it and write one more chapter. @chaoslaborantin advice is always goals. Answering asks about Kira has also made me want to write her a little older and I also came up with a somewhat realistic plan
for Mare and Cal… so roll with it I guess??? (some adorable fluff ahead, but also like serious shit too so be prepared)
Okay, always think about this. Who would you rather be? You or them? Look past the pain that they are trying to give and think about why they are doing it. Just keep on your path of light and promote in what you believe in and be that warmth and loving person. It’s like if you keep feeding the beast they are just going to come back.
