"To use a methaphor: Imagine that solving a math problem is like climbing a skyscraper. Normal people go to the top when it's the building it's done and just need to push a button on the lift to get to the top enjoying the climate and rugs and whatnot; mathematicians and teo physicist enjoy the danger and exporting, thus thry to climb when the skyscraper has less structure, first Sir Isaac Newton decided to take out the walls and electricity and climb, then Evariste Galois decided to take out the floors and ceilings for the lolz and see what he could do. Why? Because less structure allows you to see more from the top, and even more interesting allows you to comprehend the iron skeleton better and model it into new shapes."
