Let's talk about numbers. They are lovely – they describe Profanum in such a beautiful and simple way. They're the best method to show our thoughts without showing our emotions. They show us the world as it is.

There are many ways to use these numbers. First of all, many people love numbers. They create theories, structures, methods to make our relations with numbers simpler, faster – just better. Those magical tools are used to show us the beauty of our houses, neighborhoods, cities, regions, continents and planet(s). The Earth radius? No problem – 6.371 km. Route between your and your friend's house? About 14km, so you'd better take a tram. Your bedroom's area might be about 12 m2, have you known that? Your favourite crisps cost about 1€, and you know what do you have to do to get them thanks to the numbers.

There are many structures connected with numbers. Operations, obviously – such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. And logical operations. And simply every operation you want to exist, because even those I've just wrote are not fundamental, and were somehow defined. However, it's only a peak of the peak of the iceberg. There are also functions, groups, families, limits, sets – which are, BTW, primitive notion, you don't need to define it in a logical way. Plenty to work with, huh? There are also some axioms, if you're interested in. These ones are loved by mathematicians.

Hey, but on your physics you had some formulas, didn't you? They are also beautiful, because they describes us, our physical world in general, without focusing on every single case. Those are loved by all scientists and engineers. Physicians, biologists, computer scientists, of course mathematicians, civil engineers, rail engineers, basically everyone. Thanks to those little things we know how to raise our skyscrapers, how to plan our cities, how to make a plane or a train. But there are lovely not only because their usability. They are beautiful because you give them numbers, and then receive another number, which is the answer for your question.

But maybe you are a humanist, and you still don't see the clue? Ok, so, why should humanist spend its effort for numbers? Sociologist? You use statistics and other numbers that describes societies? Historians? Dates, historical facts, war data… numbers are all around you. Lawyers, attorneys? Try to find some laws in the code without paragraphs (which are basically numbers) when judge is about to plead guilty (as sometimes he should, you do not defend only good men like Phoenix, who is right). gl with that

However, numbers are not only great because of their utility. They literally develop your brain. I mean, not only numbers, but all the math, which numbers are important part of. That's not my idea, plenty of scientists think so. If you want to be better, if you want your problem-solving abilities to be way advanced – do some math.

So, dear people on the internet (and in real life), who claim, that math is worthless, that math classes are the waste of time, just think about what you lose.

Numbers are beautiful.
