Hi Plan 9. I loved your movie.
In applied math, an intelligence must care about a particular "2" and another particular "2."
The invention is in discovering properties of the objects which are being added, and how those complicate the equation.

In pure math, the = sign after 2+2
will obtain an answer of "4" by definition.
The definition will remain true since there IS NO DIFFERENCE between the definitions 2+2 and (+) 4. There is not a DIFFERENCE; there is AN EQUAL SIGN.
I think pure math is just the discovery of combinations which are true by definition in proportional relationships all the way to the frontiers of infinity (as we know it).
