- About me -
is Mick Vakante and I have the Master’s degree
in Civil Engineering.
father found the Maths personal tutor. I had only 4 or 5 Maths sessions
and then the miracle happened! It was all then clear to me. He taught
me about the logic and how to adopt and adapt maths.
All what I needed was that little push. Maths was the key to the all above subjects. From that part of maths I managed to understand other parts of Maths and Physics, and Computer Sciences (programming), and Economics,… My view of Maths, Physics,Biology,Chemistry, Economics and Computer Sciences was never the same again. In the space of only a few months I greatly improved all my grades from other subjects and passed the very stringent C.E. University entry exam! Afterwards, in my Civil Engineering University I had no problems with any subject (there were 50 altogether) that involved Maths or logic. Do I have to mention that there were none of the subjects that did not involve either Maths or logic, two inseparable sisters?
in life, I have found again and again that the beauty and simplicity
of maths was overwhelming and an all-powerful. I applied it to complex
installations of numerous types of equipment in various London Recording
Studios (Pythagoras had found a long time ago that there was an inseparable
link between numbers and music), I applied it together with Boolean
algebra (which is also a part of the maths logic) to solve the way car
alarms/immobilisers work (thus significantly reducing the manufacturing
costs), beautifully solved numerous mathematical problems for my London
I can only
wish that my father introduced me to that great Maths tutor years ago.
just mention that Pythagoras’ theorem (as everybody knows it)
at the Home Page was not invented by him(?!) The Chinese and Babylonians
knew it and used it for a good 1000 years before him, then Egyptians
(it is carved in the Great Pyramid), but Pythagoras was the one who
proved it (in the 6th century B.C.), so it was named after him. The
proof is quite simple, the whole story leads to irrational numbers,
then Fermat’s theorem whose proof was waiting for another 358
years to be established (it was solved only recently), but that is another
And there goes the applied maths and science, from a deep past to the present day of Quantum, String and Chaos theories and with these theories much, much further into the deep Universe and beyond to other dimensions! It is everywhere and there it will always remain to be as the hidden law of everything, waiting to be discovered and rediscovered.
and the very best grades wishes you,
