The word “mathematical” originally stems from the Greek expression ta mathematic, which means “things insofar as we take them, where one who takes only takes what one basically has”. In other words, “the mathematical” per se is the knowing of what we already know, and in this sense, as Heidegger has pointed out, mathematics is only just one form of “the mathematical”.A mathematician is primarily one who seeks to know what he already knows. Such a knower must be fully engaged with the world. The knower being unified with what is to be known. I wish to be a mathematician in this purest sense. A knower engaged with the world to such an extent that he is no longer distinguishable from what he is to know. What life is can never be answered outside our very lives. Our very living, constitutes this great ‘idea’ of what life may be. There is no definition of life out there. In fact, WE are the definition of life.
