The Writing Was the Writing of God
A good, though non-mathematical, example is the child writing with its left hand 'because God the Father does'. (He has to; the Son is sitting on the other one.)Christ "sits on the right hand of the Father" according to the Creed.
Id., p. 41 (brackets in original):
Schoolmaster: 'Suppose x is the number of sheep in the problem'. Pupil: 'But, Sir, suppose x is not the number of sheep'. [I asked Prof. Wittgenstein was this not a profound philosophical joke, and he said it was.]
