I. am. Telling you!! Mathematics is like tripping on acid + mushrooms + peyote + huffing ether + being wide awake the whole time and, if you’re a Real Mathematician, also being ridiculously out of the park intelligent. Can you imagine seeing this in your head and not being able to explain it to anyone. Gaston Julia was born in 1893. No computers, I don’t think they had even invented pen and paper at that point. It was just all in his head. Also the guy had no nose. Yuck.
