It's funny how we have the word "escapist literature" but not escapist math. For me, math has always been a safer escape. To a discerning eye, no literature is purely escapist. There are always hints of the unconscious, of culture, of humans. Literature is ideology.

Math, on the other hand, is devoid of culture. It's definite, it's safe and reassuring. It's a lot less messier than literature. Math is "out there". Math is like believing in God.
