Each week we will be contemplating one mathematical equation in extreme detail. Will move our minds into the structures of that equation and get to know it at its source. The goal to be will be for each of us to develop a deep subjective relationship with the equation. One in which we can perceive that equation as self-evident and one single movement of mathematical truth. This equation will be the “koan” of the week, and each of us will consider and contemplate this equation as our weekly assignment. Part of our contemplation will be to create some small piece of software related to this equation. I will be taking a journey with you. And while I will have probably consider this equation personally before, this practice is never ending and will deepen my comprehension of that equation or topic.
Every class will begin and end with a meditation. Initial meditation will be there to help us clear our minds and expand our consciousness. The final meditation will be there to integrate what we’ve learned. This will most importantly develop our meditation ability. The meditation approach will be metaphysical where we focus on energy directly.

If you think you know them and that this doesn’t apply to you, you may be surprised. What is 18^2 in Hexadecimal? Why is the integral of sin from 0 to pi exactly two? Can you see these as self-evident truths with a single step visual proof? Can you do them without thought, thinking so softly that all your spiritual energy is retained?
