We like this. Ian Stewart say’s of his book 17 Equations That Changed the World….
“The power of equations lies in the philosophically difficult correspondence between mathematics, a collective creation of human minds, and an external physical reality. Equations model deep patterns in the outside world. By learning to value equations, and to read the stories they tell, we can uncover vital features of the world around us… This is the story of the ascent of humanity, told in 17 equations”.
That’s right. Equations have important stories to tell, like this one 3 nights + 3 days + 10 experiences # 1 life. It’s the equation we use to describe The School of Curiosity ‘End of Summer School’, 23-25 October Villefranche-sur-Mer. You can download the full prospectus here.
Maybe, just maybe, it will be the 18th equation that changes your world.
Have a curious day.
