2. What is the nature of mathematical objects?
I like this concept. I am reading about the nature of mathematical structures and computers and their relations in "Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid", a Metaphorical fugue on minds and machines.
"how can we be sure, if we've tried to model a formal system on some part of mathematics, that we've done the job accurately--especially if we;re not one hundred percent familiar with that portion of mathematics already."
It also mentions a contemporary math concept that whole numbers do not exist, I think that they are infinitely impartial.
