Mathematics has always inspired me. For clarification, I am not exactly a huge fan of mathematics as a subject but it has always given me food for thought. You see, I find ironies of life in mathematical topics. For e.g.- Calculus. Now, for me Integration was always tougher than Differentiation. Isn't that true for all of us in real life? Isn't it easier for us to throw someone out of our lives than to forgive them and kept them woven in the web of our lives? Integration on the other hand, requires a deeper 'understanding' as it is considered to be 'tougher'.
When we look further we find other such topics like- Degrees of freedom. It was a mathematical concept in my first year of college. Now, it got me thinking. Are we really free? If yes, then what defines the extent of freedom? Or is it absolute? What factors affect our 'degrees' of freedom? Last and the important being- Algebra. The Variables, the Constants. Some things are 'axioms' in real life and some, we 'derive', based on the given facts.
So, exactly how far can life be equated to mathematical concepts? How many times do we add and subtract people from our lives? I'm leaving you all with a mathematical home-work (yeah yeah, I know! dont give me those looks now!). Think about mathematical concepts as the weird lessons of life because of the obvious similarity- we neither understand maths, nor are we able to comprehend Life. :-)
