“I have deeply regretted that i did not proceed far enough at least to understand something of the great leading principles of mathematics; for men thus endowed seem to have an extra sense.” — Charles Darwin
Now go do some math,
PS. the pic is of me! I took Darwin’s lament seriously 11 years ago when I went back to college to major in mathematics. I spent 7 total years studying math, between undergrad and grad. While it may seem odd for a weightlifting coach to have done such a thing, in truth, it has turned out to have been one of the smartest moves I ever made. However, it was just the beginning. There is far more math out there to learn than any one human can do in a single lifetime. Therefore, I will become a cyborg.
