The greatest and most beautiful language
is an entirely mathematical one: Music.
Still, any number of grand equations are so
striking that they can be as emotionally moving
as the greatest linguistic poems. (Some pictograms,
being neither math nor words, are yet logically &
emotionally satisfying enough to point out to us
how every humanity has its own language.)
The distinction comes down to the fact that it's
just more challenging to compose utter nonsense
when you use math. Or perhaps one's nonsense is
much more self-evident in that language. All one
do is hear a single wrong note to spoil the entire
message/meaning of the Song.
I'd say "most" of the time that's the case exactly.
Although we all know what he was trying to say above
.... what he said was that mankind doesn't know math is
the best language for physics (and, wouldn't you know it:
doesn't he know?) AND that nobody knows why nobody
knows. These are unprecedented but unquantifiable
(outside the power of math) new heights of ignorance.
And yet sometimes words, even the English of our so
endearingly nearly illiterate professionals, are best to express
the sad-but-oddly-amusing human condition.
Now, there I must strongly disagree: People are "mostly"
crazy, and this is self-evidently the direct OR indirect result
of quantum theory. [pun]
