Numbers are limitless.

Letters are limited.

The mathematician thinks without limitations, the linguistician thinks within limitations.

We are trained to communicate using letters and compute using numbers. Communication is in itself limitless and computation is in itself limited. Containing a limitless form in limited means and a limited form in limitless means is a recipe for chaos. And chaos rules the world.

We struggle to share the broad spectrum of our thoughts, intentions and emotions (which is limitless) using letters, leading to a lot of frustration.

We remain discontent with any number we achieve, because there is always more, leading to a lack of satisfaction.

Coding tries to correct this, bringing communication and computation to a limitless and limited means respectively. Learn it.
