Hi everyone!

I don't quite understand why it's taken me so many years to find this forum, but now that I have, I'm glad to be here.

I've always been interested in mathematics, geometry in particular. I'm a retired electronics engineer, but still 'do' electronics as a hobby - along with several other interests, including maths. & general D-I-Y.

Location is Somerset, United Kingdom.

Relevant education in maths. is to GCE A-level (and a bit more) from 1968.

My interest in maths. is not limited to classical & traditional mathematics, but the wider philosophy of mathematics, including its history. So here's three Qs. that have always puzzled me:

1. Why is maths so appealing to some people and not to others?

2. Is maths a 'Science' or an 'Art'? Or neither? (Personally, I view it as an Art).

3. Why are so many mathematicians addicted to caffiene?

Any replies will be much appreciated and I look forward to contributing positively to this forum.
