By keeping track of these types of questions and their associated outcomes, I should be able to induce some fundamental principles I can use when forming all my future questions.

]]>I also enjoyed reading your perspective on the purpose of mathematics (i.e., to inform humans about their world/universe). The nature and purpose of mathematics is an old debate, and your post has me thinking about mathematical pursuits like the one I’ve posted below (written in response to viral social media math problem). I was recently struck by the elegance of the author’s writing and the surprising depth of mathematical knowledge required to solve what first appears to be a straightforward problem. I don’t know if I learn anything about the world from the post, but I found it fascinating to read!
