But the question is will he get his fellow mathematician interested in the constructs of his imagination.

Everybody who looks at the spectacle of modern algebra will be struck by this complementarity of freedom and necessity. (Quote by - Hermann Weyl)

That something happened to you is of no importance to anyone, not even to you. The important thing about you is what you choose to make happen - your values and choices.
