One of the most negligent things that we have done in mathematics is that its purposes have always been directed externally to supporting and providing for society. This focus has also taken a toll on our students and teachers who must engage with mathematics through a lens of compliance, performance, and competition. Our energies have been consumed in this toxic landscape. But, our failure has been that we have neglected ourselves. What purpose does mathematics have with our life's journey? To answer that question we must approach math in a completely new way. We must embrace confusion and uncertainty with excitement and not trepidation. We must do this because it has been the entire historical narrative of the history of mathematics. We must reclaim its human power and purpose.
