Science and Math Return

I've grown up.  Philosophy now leaves a bad taste in my mouth.  Logic is its only noteworthy field, but mathematicians have supplanted the philosophers' pithy logics with usefulness.  So I've returned to science and math and herald the reality described by their subtly elegant formulae.  Finally I can enjoy something substantial again: the equations.

Planmaessig vorgehenden Menschen wollen ein bestimmtes Ziel erreichen.  Der Zufall trifft sie dann am schlimmsten, wenn sie durch ihn das Gegenteil ihres Ziels erreichen: Das, was sie befuerchteten, was sie zu vermeiden suchten (z. B. Oedipus).  Punkte zu den Physiker by Duerrenmatt (1962)

Methodical people want to achieve a certain goal.  The worst coincidence meets them if they reach the opposite of their goal: What they feared, what they sought to avoid (e.g. oedipus).  Points to the physicist by Duerrenmatt (1962) [trans. by vap0rtranz]
