We’re going to talk about mathematics now, but in a way never discussed in your high school or college math courses. It’s a theoretical, philosophical question that astrophysicist Mario Livio poses. Is mathematics an invention, something that human beings came up with to help count, measure, quantify, predict and explain things? Or maybe math existed long before any humans did, and all we’ve done for millennia is discover it, inventing nothing new. Mario Livio asks the question in his book “Is God a Mathematician?”
