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...

A legend tells of a people living deep in the desert, they appear at first as ordinary human beings, sometimes impersonating someone familiar to the PCs, before causing their features to disappear, leaving a blank, smooth sheet of skin where their face should be.
