For those of you who get it, you will realize this video is a lot deeper in terms of symbolic meaning, linkage, learning and evolutionary creation of symbolic and applied knowledge. For the rest, enjoy the pretty coral.
I would be interested in hearing comments about this as most of the really deep math people I know will understand immediately why "play" is important. pushing symbols about isn't interesting, but synthesizing new relationships or constructs within a bounded environment is very cool.
For the fairly limited maths used in "advanced" finance and risk, just curious what kind of "wooly" form would pop out of a good CMBS or CDO model. My guess is a CDO would look something like a teratoma and be immediately recognized as unstable or unfunctional due to flawed form.
