What is truth? Are facts necessary for something to be called true? Is it enough that the majority believes in something for that thing to be considered truth? In George Orwell’s Nineteen Eight-Four, he said, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.” In the same light, author Leon Halfon proposes the “mathematics of life” as the ultimate truth, the truth which everything must be based on. He expounds his thoughts and insights regarding the matter in the eponymous book The Mathematics of Life.
Halfon in the beginning of the book writes, “To understand the mathematics of life, one must not always be obedient. Galileo was not obedient even after torture. He knew the mathematics of the stars and of our world. If he and the other great scientists obeyed religion, where would we be today?” This statement is enough to give readers an inkling of the radical ideas that await them in The Mathematics of Life.
Halfon’s work will spark a ground-breaking journey to self-discovery and an understanding of different things that have come to define life. In each chapter he explores a wide range of subjects like life, love, sex, science, religion and even politics. He throws in relevant personal recollections and opinions while cleverly using metaphors and analogies to prove his point. Ultimately, the principles in the book will challenge readers to look beyond the norm and let go of any specious beliefs that are impeding their growth and potentials.
The Mathematics of Life is a book that will be hard to put down. The pages are laden with revolutionary ideas and intriguing experiences that will astound, inspire and entertain.
