This note is specially made to know what actually is Maths, what is its use in a world without humans, and how it affects on's intelligence. This discussion note demand from every 'Maths' geek(in other words, all the people on Brilliant) to share their views on the definition of Mathematics according to them.

What is mathematics?

I've always used the following sentence as the answer to this question.

Mathematics is a culture—the one and only one culture of the mathematical community. Those who do not pay attention to its history neglect a crucial aspect of it—its vitality. Those who do not do mathematics neglect a different crucial aspect of it—its beauty.
