“The abstraction level I find very appealing, but also, that it’s possible to really understand. One moment, you have no clue what some piece of mathematics is saying or how it’s working, and suddenly there’s like this neurological shift and it clicks into place. Then, not only do you understand it, but it’s almost incomprehensible that you didn’t understand it five seconds ago.”
– Dr. Holly Krieger from my interview for John Adams Institute. We talk about the creativity and structure of pure mathematics.
