When I spontaneously experienced the beauty of the integral symbol!


Years back, when I was in my Physics classroom doing an integration problem, I remember feeling the integral symbol’s indescribable but in-depth beauty, almost spontaneously. I don’t know where it came from, it just came suddenly. It was the first time I felt the beauty of a non-living thing. I suddenly stopped writing in my notebook and started gazing at it, just to admire the majesty and power of a small S-shaped sign that can virtually solve any complex problem in this universe. I remember telling my friend who was sitting next to me about my feeling. He replied to me, “Are you mad?”. I said, “Yes, It’s just getting started!”
