“People who appreciate the beauty of mathematics activate the same part of their brain when they look at aesthetically pleasing formula as others do when appreciating art or music, suggesting that there is a neurobiological basis to beauty.” https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/2014/feb/mathematical-beauty-activates-same-brain-region-great-art-or-music

The findings of this study could be classified as “truths” or “significant truths” depending on one’s perspective. The findings are only “truths” in some ways since they are fairly preliminary and the significance is still somewhat unclear. However, the study could also be viewed as having uncovered “significant truths” given the previously unknown neurological basis of mathematical and artistic beauty.
