Here's what a 270-year-old mathematical formula can teach you about innovation
Accountants tell us that numbers don't lie, because for them numbers are the same as facts. Mathematicians see it differently though. They see numbers as abstract representations of reality that, when combined with other numbers, have an almost mystical ability to create patterns that unlock hidden truths. In other words, as the great early 20th century numbers theorist G. H. Hardy put it, "A mathematician, like a painter or a poet, is a maker of patterns. If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ideas." Identifying these hidden truths can open up new possibilities and take us in new directions.
