In my view, it is the objectivity of mathematical knowledge that is the source of its limitless possibilities. This quality distinguishes mathematics from any other type of human endeavor. I believe that understanding what is behind this quality will shed light on the deepest mysteries of physical reality, consciousness, and interrelations between them. In other words, the closer we are to the Platonic world of math, the more power we will have to understand the world around us and our place in it. Luckily, nothing can stop us from delving deeper into this Platonic reality and integrating it into our lives. What’s truly remarkable is mathematics’ inherent democracy: while some parts of the physical and mental worlds may be perceived or interpreted differently by different people or may not even be accessible to some of us, mathematical concepts and equations are perceived in the same way and belong to all of us equally . No one can have a monopoly on mathematical knowledge; no one can claim a mathematical formula or idea as his or her invention; no one can patent a formula! Albert Einstein, for example, would not be able to patent his formula E = mc 2 . That’s because, if correct, a mathematical formula expresses an eternal truth about the universe. Hence no one can claim ownership of it; it is ours to share. 14 Rich or poor, black or white, young or old –no one can take these formulas away from us. Nothing in this world is so profound and elegant, and yet so available to all.
