When you look at the universe and see superclusters of galaxies, then galaxies, solar systems, planets, plants and animals, cells, molecules, atoms, particles, then quarks. And what if all of that turned out to be an atom inside a world vastly larger than we could ever imagine?

RE: Beauty of Mathematics
A lot of beauty in mathematics, for sure. I almost double majored in physics and mathematics, but dropped the math after a little over 40 semester units, as it would have taken me another two years to graduate (I also worked my way through university as a mechanic, even though I had the GI Bill to help, so only ever took 1214 semester units at a time). I taught math and physics in a high school in the mid90s. I actually enjoyed it.

Calculus is EASY, English and history are DIFFICULT!

I finally began to enjoy it when I was earning my bachelor of science degree in business administration. My math professor was a naval engineer that worked on rocket guidance systems for thirty years. I came to the point where I realized that all math was not that difficult as long as you follow the rules and formulas.

I agree, but in the sense that English was obvious to me, since I was a native speaker (well, at least American English), and history, well, I can look that up at any time. So, the difficulty for me was essentially lack of interest. I'm off to bed now, so I'll pick it up tomorrow.
