How did know you choose x and x
? Heuristics is a fine answer if there is no other explanation.
I'm not sure what the origin of this is. There's a lot of mathematics that has arisen because someone discovered a useful technique.
Learning integration has taught me that heuristics, unfortunately, do have a place in math. (Referring to substitution.) Destroying my view of math as the only sanctuary of determinism, this made me sad, at the time. jk :P
Great explanation, by the way.
