Mathematics Is Incestuous

A Poem by Medium Dave

Inside a World Inside a World Inside a World Inside a World Inside a World

Can you use math to talk about math?
To reveal a deeper reason
(inside)
To see further
                        Outside
Can we use the world
To see ourselves. . . 
Inside a world Inside a world Inside a world Inside a world Inside a World

We affect the world, our footprints, fingerprints and DNA litter it like a crime scene.
Much in the same way an investigator can tell you accurately about the criminal from only his crime scene, we can tell much about ourselves from the world we've touched and molded.
Not a pretty story...

An intriguing and inquisitive notion that's meant to be tested. The answer lies within the variables of the question itself. Nice work. A clever and riveting short poem. :)

I have always posed the question ... we humans created numbers, created math... if we had of turned a different corner and created something else ... where would we be now?

It's interesting to me how everyone of us interprets the world - take you for example - you have a science brain - me well, I tend to like tapping into inherent knowledge ... and here we are usually (not always) arriving at the same point.

I've been busy - how are you?

Good read. Some interesting questions.

I've been told the universe is made up of numbers. Every being within it has a number, a meaning. Codes, Codes and numbers make up the great secrets of life. Everything is a puzzle, a riddle, a problem to be solved. The universe is a spiral and that pattern continues throughout the past, present, and future. Beginning at the bottom, it churns and spins continuously. Recycling everything that enters within, churning, lifting, mixing, combining. Everyone has a journey, a path....and we all have of numbers, too, through numerology and the time of our births. Numbers are never ending, as is the universe, as we know it.
I am no professor, scholar, or genious. I understand one plus one, and know when you lose someone or something, that is a loss...a subtraction from the whole.....but that is just my deduction, my interpretation, my " take away", if you will; of my understanding from this poem.

I was pulled in to your poem by the interesting visuals, layer upon layer and it got my mind thinking about a slice of rock and the strata within it. I don't think about maths everyday, but I do ponder on physics and the expanse of what I don't know. And those black holes in space and time are mind blowing. That's where you took me. I'm sure a mathematician would tell me there's maths in everything :)
