## Main Question or Discussion Point

Has anyone found that doing mathematics actually results in a sort of soothing "disconnect" from the drudgery of everyday life?

I'm being serious. Something about the numbers, variables, mathematical symbols and theorems...they seem to represent a very unambiguous "reality", entirely free from the sometimes unpredictable and disconcerting events and thoughts that often arise from living life in general.
