to be able to actually prove that I'm right

it is annoying for me when people don't accept good arguments, and that rarely happens in math

Taking it opens up a whole new perspective for me. It takes my thoughts to places unimaginable and lets me see beyond the horizon to reach the fundamental building blocks that secretly dictate our universe.

Oh wait, I misread: you are asking about maths.

The power of abstraction

I'm a physicist working in computational condensed matter physics. What I've always loved about my field is using high-level abstraction to solve problems. For example, in my case, i want to solve Schrodinger's equation for 2d and 3d spìn topologies for non-markovian, highly correlated systems. My research focus is to solve said equations by analyzing Riemannian manifolds of one-body, two-body, etc. many-body operators, optimizing some set of parameters acording to some suitable cost-function and doing projections to simpler spaces or groups by the means of convex optimization theory.

The creativity. You can really create things through math, that is why I am drawn to it after a bachelors in biology.

Literally, its pursuit for the sake of it. It feels like one of the longest stretches of human imagination.

the inevitability. I remember the first time I learned the proof of euler's formula using the series expansion of ex, cosx and sinx. at the time I did not know they were related, but seeing the whole thing unfold gave me this exhilarating, and almost suffocating, sense that "ah, this is it, it couldnt be otherwise."
