Black Mathematics

Most sciences have a dark side. Psychiatrists prescribe addictive 'mood-balancing' drugs to improve the 'well-being' of their patients, and every day hundreds ( 2,730 every day according to W'pedia ) of people get electro-shocked, to cure them from 'mental illness'. Physicists and engineers work on weapons of mass destruction to 'ensure peace'. BAE systems UK, the biggest arms manufacturer in the world, generates over 95% of its revenue from arms sales.

What do mathematicians contribute to the art of black science? - Charles Seife ( science writer and teacher of journalism in New York City) wrote the book Proofiness: the dark arts of mathematical deception.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
