One service mathematics has rmdcred the 'Et moi, .•.• si j'avait su comment en rcvenir. human race.

The series is divergent; thererore we may be Eric T. Bell able to do something with iL O. Hcavisidc Mathematics is a tool for thought. A highly necessary tool in a world where both feedback and non linearities abound. Similarly, all kinds of parts of mathematics serve as tools for other parts and for other sciences. Applying a simple rewriting rule to the quote on the right above one finds such statements as: 'One service topology has rendered mathematical physics .. .'; 'One service logic has rendered com puter science .. .'; 'One service category theory has rendered mathematics .. .'. All arguably true. And alI statements obtainable this way form part of the raison d'etre of this series.
