# Seemingly useless - surely counterintuitive

For me, mathematics is a passion, a game, a mystery and often a tool. Escaping into the world of math is liberating. Applying it to the real world is where I see my responsibility. It taught me to start with the easy things. Or at least the seemingly easy ones.

### "Since people have started to prove the simplest claims, most of them turned out to be wrong."

Bertrand Russell

Since getting used to the notion of proof in maths, I have been hesitant to apply it in everyday life (particularly in the context of politics). The real world, being massively more complex than maths, doesn't allow for binary true/false categorization. Often, even falsification is difficult enough.

When solving problem sets, I find it useful to have insights in other people's work. During my math studies, a collection of math-related materials has formed. I share some of them here for self-study.
