The classic discussion on whether #mathematics exists in our reality for us to discover, or exists only as man-made inventions to describe said reality (among others), is once again explored in this panel discussion (with a 10+ minute intro from moderator Brian Greene)


@btcprox In my mind, it is the wrong discussion. It's kind of like the many discussions we have on the existence of God, despite the fact God is not precisely defined. Similarly, a discussion of whether or not reality is reflected in mathematics is futile as long as reality is not clearly defined.
