Fun Fact: Georg Cantor was a 19th-century German mathematician. He devised set theory but it was his work on the concept of infinity which brought him fame or infamy. He believed that in seeing the “infinite” through his mathematics that he had seen the literal face of God. Many in the religious community felt that he was meddling in an area which no man had the right to meddle. He died, tragically, alone in a lunatic asylum. Some say it was this experience which drove him mad.
“ Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.”
