*“Mathematics is part of physics. Physics is an experimental science, a part of natural science. Mathematics is the part of physics where experiments are cheap.”*

— Vladimir Arnold.

*“The duty of abstract mathematics, as I see it, is precisely to expand our capacity for hypothesizing possible ontologies.”*

— Norm Levitt, Prof Mathematics Rutger University
