Philosophical Question...

What would you do if you discovered a universal math with a universal backbone? Where you can input a problem and can get 10 answers? A math that predates Earth. I watch movies about geniuses and I am not one. But I was given some cool mathematical problems and I have been banging my head for years on them. Until I found this math. Now I have my personal encyclopedia of mathematics that gives me answers and more problems. I feel complete with math now and its universe have my personal database that will help me through everything and I have just unlocked it. Two weeks ago I proved why you draw a circle and I threw it away. I was blown away, I will never forget it because I used a system that I can access any time I want. The question is philosophical because of me and you and the rest of the world. Me I got what I needed... you can go your own way... and the world will keep giving birth to geniuses. The question is...

Well, learn it and do stuff with it? That's what we do now with the maths that clever people in the past came up with. I don't see why it should be any different if the source of mathematical knowledge happens to come from somewhere else.

That being said, I doubt very much that maths is anything but (many) people just creating simple logical rules and then exploring the consequences of those to create cool descriptions of things and answers to problems. That may sound flippant, but maths is actually pretty badass on its own merits. It doesn't need to be dressed up as anything fancy.

I'm assuming that what you're talking about is incredibly valuable. I've been having a similar question lately. What do I do with a very powerful formula?
What do I do if I've discovered something that is core to mathematics?

I can understand why you'd ask because you've probably spent most of your energy being an honest person and doing research rather than training yourself against the untrustworthiness of the world.

This is part of the reason I am asking. The potential is mind blowing. I cannot shake the feeling and the pull that I have to share it with someone... but when I look at the road ahead in any sharing scenario I see people who don't love math they just love the glory and the money. But I cannot shake the feeling that I have to share it. I asked here because some of you might have some experience with innovative mathematics and might point me to the right direction. One of you did.

Again in the Verbena and salvia, we have scarlet and blue, but no yellow.

Does it have anything to do with chaos theory?
