Edward Frenkel: Let’s Stop Hating Math
Mathematician Edward Frenkel (http://edwardfrenkel.com) argues that we need to embrace math to survive our brave new world.
Edward Frenkel is professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, as well as author and filmmaker. Winner of the Hermann Weyl Prize in Mathematical Physics, Frenkel has authored three books and over eighty research articles in scholarly journals, and he has lectured on his work around the world.
Frenkel co-produced, co-directed and played the lead in the film “Rites of Love and Math” which French newspaper Le Monde called “a stunning short film… offering an unusual romantic vision of mathematicians.” His new book “Love and Math” (http://goo.gl/x3zjDT) has been named one of Best Books of 2013 by both Amazon and iBooks. In it, he makes a passionate argument for the central role of mathematics in our culture, revealing a side of the subject that most of us have never seen before, suffused with all the beauty and wonder of a work of art. Math is about accessing a new way of thinking and understanding reality at a deeper level, says Frenkel, and he wants to open this hidden magic universe to everyone.

Free winds and no tyranny for you, Freddie, sailor of the seas. You pay no rent, free to go where you please. Then go, go to that landless latitude and good luck. If you figure a way to live without serving a master, any master, then let the rest of us know, will you? For you’d be the first in the history of the world.
Philip Seymour Hoffman (23 July 1967 – 2 February 2014) RIP

Listen loud music while driving. Cofee, chocolate. Take a camera and go out for some photoshots. Handcrafting. Get into a nice bookstore. Play with kids.
