Lack of Mathematics?

  1. May 7, 2007 #1
    This seems kind of funny posting in the "Academic and Career Guide" but what would happen to a person if they completely (if that’s possible) neglect mathematics? I don't believe you can totally neglect math because you will unconsciously use it someway almost everyday but I believe a person is able to become numb to formal practice of it.

    What would happen? It already did.

    What do you mean? Most people already completely neglect mathematics. Do you mean completely neglect numbers? I.e. never think of anything in quantities?

    I'm guessing animals do that, although I'm sure they sense multiplicity.
