I am a mathematician by profession, specialising in the heady world of low-dimensional topology and knot theory. I used to think that mathematics was the closest thing we have to magic, but now I would disagree. In some sense it's the furthest possible thing: there is no real "depth" in mathematics, there is just subtlety. Changing viewpoint can afford us vistas of extraordinary beauty, but only if we choose the right way of looking at things. To say that an idea or theorem is deep is more to say that it opens up profoundly new way of thinking. Perhaps all the theorems we see as being hard are just being seen from the wrong point of view...

From an episode of Justice League Unlimited:

The God of War creates a giant, unstoppable robot (golem, animated armor, etc.) as a weapon for one side in a civil war; his purpose is to prolong the war and create suffering and war among humanity.
Quote from Ares in that episode, which would go well with this idea: "That's all you mortals are good for! To fight and fight and fight until there is nothing left but charred land and blood and bones, and to end it all and then start again with the next generation!"
