Does Math Exist? Well, It’s Complicated [Video]

Follow up: Are we blowing your mind right now?

I was never a “math kid” in school, so I appreciate this deeply philosophical look at the invention of mathematics as explained to us by the always-amazing PBS Idea Channel. Math as a concrete unquestionable thing fills my flighty English major heart with dread, but math as a flexible language and/or belief structure? I can get behind that. Hopefully Mike Rugnetta and crew will use this video as a jumping off point for other commonly asked stoner questions such as “What if the color blue that  I see and the color blue that you see are different colors?” and “Do you guys see my hand right now? My hand is weird, right?”
