Certainly I envision the importance of mathematics from moment to moment from
sub-atomic to life to extra-galactic.
Peace I love. Weapons may be necessary.

In fact, I think a famous mathematician
(des Cartes?) died from mistreatment
by nonmathemticians. This is a caution
that math is not as empowering as it could be.

Symmetries...this can have many metaphors too
equity...value for value relationships...
reciprocity....fair pay....justice....

But I don't really understand the math
of Emmy Noether yet. I suspect an excellent brain
makes most of these calculations until it is scrambled by entropy and bad training.
But formal math is needed for solving complex problems and
communicating same.

QUESTION: Would mathematical symmetries
be likely to be available to use for evil
as well as good?

Thank You.
