Every comment in here has missed the purpose of this post. And frankly I think they’re great examples of what mathematics as a whole has missed in society. The mythical name for this missing piece in our educational foundation can be many, but one is "discrete mathematics". Which yes, is just as much a language as any spoken because it is syntactically sound in speech. It is the school of logic. For example, the right side of the image isn’t an exact translation so much as a logical form that allows the left side to be considered true.

"In the set containing b1, b2, b3 there exists a form such that b1<b2<b3."

Not an absolute translation, but the elements are implicitly time in this comparison.
I’d love to see more activity like this on this blog. Mathematics is passion that I painfully ignored for almost a decade.
