Mathematical science shows what is. It is the language of unseen relations between things. But to use and apply that language, we must be able fully to appreciate, to feel, to seize the unseen, the unconscious.

Theme: Bread
Item #1: The US Government banned presliced bread in 1943, but the ban lasted only several months due to widespread protest.[7]
Item #2: In the US some products sold as wheat bread are just white bread dyed brown with caramel coloring.[8]
Item #3: A “baker’s dozen” is 13, originally used as a marketing ploy, as 13 is prime and cannot be easily divided, encouraging purchase of the full “dozen.”[9]
