It is impossible for the mind which is not totally destitute of piety, to behold the sublime, the awful, the amazing works of creation and providence — the heavens with their luminaries, the mountains, the ocean, the storm, the earthquake, the volcano, the circuit of the seasons, and the revolutions of empires — without marking in them all the mighty hand of God, and feeling strong emotions of reverence toward the Author of these stupendous works.
Nor second he, that rode sublime Upon the seraph-wings of ecstasy, The secrets of th'abyss to spy.

One of the most frequently mentioned equations was Euler 's equation, Respondents called it "the most profound mathematical statement ever written"; "uncanny and sublime"; "filled with cosmic beauty "; and " mind -blowing". Another asked: "What could be more mystical than an imaginary number interacting with real numbers to produce nothing ?"
