Inventor Hall of Fame: Max

Source: Pi

Greatest Invention: Not all invention are things... some are ideas. Max worked out mathematics to predict parts of reality.

Greatest Limitation: Suffers from blinding migraines and didn't consider the impact of his work.

Philosophy: "11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature."
