    Especially when it's by me.

    Writing. What good is a proof, a calculus, or really any other idea (mathematical or otherwise) if it can't be effectively communicated?

    It seems that most other relevant advances follow from advances in communication.

    Math. Without the ability to do the math mismanagement of money would surely follow. And we all know where that road can lead...

    This is a very great question, and I'm afraid I don't have the wisdom to answer it right now. Maybe I'll think on it, and get back to this.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Math, math could also be more easily turned into writing.

    I don't think that most people here are referring to maths as the basic kind - which is obviously essential - but probably to the more advanced type. I know great accountants that aren't particularly good at maths over the calculus level.

    Can you write exemplary psychological horror like Stephen King? That's more lucrative than any math success, even Nobel status.

    If I have to choose one: writing

    But maths is just another language, really. A complex one.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    You can't have math without writing (mathematical writing). Since this impossibly ridiculous question requires one choice I would say the ability to communicate is arguable the bedrock of our existence (society). It makes us who we are.
