>Logic is the only deductive science. There is probably more disagreement of what the science of logic is than about what mathematics is. As you indicate later on, there several logics out there. It's entirely unclear which, if any, of them is deductive.

Mathematics is mostly a result of inspiration.

Is mathematics about formulas? (Or should I write "formulae"?)

Well, there are too many examples to the contrary.

Of what value are values in this context?

Are the latter two allow for drawing conclusions, or just for an increasing measure of debate?

Thank you for that. Sincerely ...

This is certainly debatable.

Pure logic dictates the answer is

Even more debatable.

Some of my remarks in the foregoing have been posted in the form of questions. Do not misread that: I do not expect the answers.

Logically: what good may come out of that?

You can't spoil what does not make sense.
