[ Between Branches Construction Developed Disclosed Does Further Harmoniously Hitherto Mathematical More Proceed Relations Science Separated Theory Uniformly]

The traditional mathematician recognizes and appreciates mathematical elegance when he sees it. I propose to go one step further, and to consider elegance an essential ingredient of mathematics: if it is clumsy, it is not mathematics. Edsger Dijkstra

The infinite in mathematics is alway unruly unless it is properly treated. James Newman
