gotta hand it to the gnostics, a loving god would not have created a universe where matrix - vector multiplication is non commutative

@dankwraith Once you start looking at the structure of mathematics, the fact that there is definitely no loving god becomes increasingly apparent. The fingerprints are everywhere.

The irrationality of pi. The Monster group. The field with one element. The absolute Galois group of the rationals. The fact that almost every function is everywhere-discontinuous, and almost every continuous function is everywhere-nondifferentiable. The Halting Problem.

@dankwraith But without the non-abelian, all would be too easy... and insufficiently strange.
