Sol Robeson: That is the truth of our world, Max. It can't be easily summed up with math.
Maximillian Cohen: 11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.
Sol Robeson: There will be no order, only chaos.
Rabbi Cohen: Who do you think you are? You are only a vessel from our god. You are carrying a delivery that was meant for us.
Maximillian Cohen: It was given to me.
Maximillian Cohen: 9:22, Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun, so once when I was six, I did. At first the brightness was overwhelming, but I had seen that before. I kept looking, forcing myself not to blink, and then the brightness began to dissolve. My pupils shrunk to pinholes and everything came into focus and for a moment I understood.
Maximillian Cohen: Failed treatments to date: Beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, adrenalin injections, high dose ibuprofen, steroids, Trager Mentastics, violent exercise, cafergot suppositories, caffeine, acupuncture, marijuana, Percodan, Midrine, Tenormin, Sansert, homeopathics. No results. No results.
Maximillian Cohen: It was given to me. It's inside of me. It's changing me.
Rabbi Cohen: It's killing you, because you are not ready to receive it.
Lenny Meyer: The Torah is just a long string of numbers. Some say that it's a code sent to us from God.
Sol Robeson: The Ancient Japanese considered the Go board to be a microcosm of the universe. Although when it is empty it appears to be simple and ordered, in fact, the possibilities of gameplay are endless. They say that no two Go games have ever been alike. Just like snowflakes. So, the Go board actually represents an extremely complex and chaotic universe.
Maximillian Cohen: 10:15, personal note: It's fair to say I'm stepping out on a limb, but I am on the edge and that's where it happens.
Maximillian Cohen: I'm trying to understand our world. I don't deal with petty materialists like you.
Lenny Meyer: Each letter's a number. Like the Hebrew A, Alef is 1. B, Bet is 2. You understand? But look at this. The numbers are inter-related. Like take the Hebrew word for father, 'Ab' - Alef Bet... 1, 2 equals 3. Alright? Hebrew word for mother, 'em' - Alef Mem... 1, 40 equals 41. Sum of 3 and 41... 44. Alright? Now, Hebrew word for child, all right, mother... father... child, 'Yeled' - that's 10, 30, and 4... 44.
Maximillian Cohen: 10:28. Results: bullshit.
Sol Robeson: As soon as you discard scientific rigor, you're no longer a mathematician, you're a numerologist.
Maximillian Cohen: Something's going on. It has to do with that number. There's an answer in that number.
