## Do Mathematics really help us to think and open our minds?

Well, i put that TED talk because was the only one that i found kinda related to this topic.

So a year ago I was in secondary school where teach about many subjects but very little mathematical content. I saw this as a problem, since my intention after leaving school was to pursue a engineering carrier, which obviously has a lot of math. So i studied and practiced hard to pass the entrance examination. After weeks of study, i noticed that was starting to think like in a more clear and analytical way.

I'm sure that most advanced mathematics might can help us when time to think.

Maybe was a growth phenomenon? or caused by mathematics?

Even past PhD in Mathematics it's extremely difficult to be creative.

But that doesn't mean that maths is not creative is it?
