Advanced mathematical research has demonstrated that the sum of all natural numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5...) is not infinity as common sense (or any sense) would suggest, but -1/12. The number -1/12 is of special importance to the class of 2021, as it represents all the values they aspire to uphold: memes, mathematics, and making no sense.
In Math Edit
Something something Riemann zeta function. No one actually understands it.
As a meme Edit
The first -1/12 related meme shared in a relatively public MIT 2021 environment was shared by Jade Fischer. -1/12 then received a large amount of help by Jesus Solis in reaching mainstream MIT 2021 meme culture.
