They say one man's garbage is another man's treasure. Well what may be one man's tedium is my fascination.
My latest infatuation with numbers stems from the simple fact that:
1^2 = 1 = 1
2^2 = 4 = 1 + 3
3^2 = 9 = 1 + 3 + 5
4^2 = 16 = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7
5^2 = 25 = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9
I know it doesn't seem like much to be excited about but I can't stop thinking about this. It's as if there lies a secret in this
information, a secret that I have to find. I haven't found it yet but I will keep looking!
By the way, don't you think that's just the coolest thing? n^2 = the sum of the first n odd integers
