lEt moi, .... si j'avait Sll comment en revenir, One service mathematics has rendered the human race. It has put common sense back je n'y serais point aile:' where it belongs, on the topmost shelf next Jules Verne to the dusty canister labelled 'discarded 0- sense'. The series is divergent; therefore we may be Eric T. Bell able to do something with it. o. Heaviside Mathematics is a tool for thought. A highly necessary tool in a world where both feedback and non linearities abound. Similarly, all kinds of parts of mathematics serve as tools for other parts and for other sciences. Applying a simple rewriting rule to the quote on the right above one finds such statements as: 'One service topology has rendered mathematical physics .. .'; 'One service logic has rendered com puter science .. .'; 'One service category theory has rendered mathematics .. .'. All arguably true. And all statements obtainable this way form part of the raison d 'e1re of this series.
