On the (Un-)Reality of Mathematics

I stumbled upon a paper by Barry Mazur titled "Mathematical Platonism and its Opposites" which points out a few things to keep in mind when thinking about the question: Is mathematics discovered or invented?


During the last 15 months, I discovered quite some interesting things....unfortunately I didn't post anything. Some of those discoveries will be posted here in near future.
