The mathematical basis of reality

A curious note from Plato’s Timaeus on the mathematical basis of reality:

“Every sort of body possesses solidity, and every solid must necessarily be contained in planes; and every plane rectilinear figure is composed of triangles; and all triangles are originally of two kinds, both of which are made up of one right and two acute angles … the principles which are prior to these God only knows.”

So there you have it. Right-brainers read it and weep.
