This discussion reminded me of an anonymous quote from a theoretical 
physicist, which is not without relevance to some of our favorite topics:

"I decided that I really was a physicist instead of a mathematician when 
I discovered that all of mathematics is composed entirely of brackets -- 
take the brackets away, and there's nothing left."
