I'm happy enough to have inspired intelligent discussion amongst yourselves, for now. Once you're all congregated at one spot, I'll come back.

Yeah, I mean why answer a simple question when you can just take credit for people getting around your meaningless OP?

The OP was clearly respectful of mathematicians

Nobody said you weren't. What does that have to do with anything? Specifically, what does it have to do you with you not explaining what "metaphysical value" could possibly be in relation to math, and why anyone should give a fuck? That's what my post was about, since you obviously missed it.

and I'm sat here acquiring any metaphysical value I can from the ensuing discussion between you.

Which is completely useless to anyone else in the thread. Again, you're asking people to discuss something (metaphysical value of math) that you haven't explained and is, as far as anyone can tell, completely pointless.

Don't be a dick, is my best advice.

Take your own advice and answer the question.
