A very interesting answer to the question, "What is it like to have an understanding of very advanced mathematics?" is at http://www.quora.com/What-is-it-like-to ... #ans873950

For what it is worth, Anonymous' answer is quite close to how I might describe my own relationship with math.

Many of the answers have parallels to computer programming, especially recognizing patterns and occam's razor etc.
