He saw the elegant lawfulness of geometry as the foundation of the entire universe. The multiplicity of reality comes out of fire by condensation, becoming humid air, then water, and finally earth. Organized for the explicit purpose of assisting parents dissatisfied with "fuzzy math" in their children's schools, Mathematically Correct attracted a large number of supporters (including the author of this chapter).
