The Universe (or Multi-verse) is an exceedingly interesting place. And Mathematica is an exceedingly interesting part of the Universe. It has enough consistency and richness to be thought of as a domain unto itself to explore, like quantum physics, the early universe, molecular genetics, neural circuits, or evolution. And if you enjoy mathematics, Mathematica itself is a region of pure mathematics. It is a synthesis of pure mathematics and "best practices" acquired to date in our understanding of programming.
If you get to the point of mastering part of Mathematica, you will find that your ability to articulate questions, explore answers, and write up your results in that area to be so enhanced as to be exhilirating.
