Overheard at Table 4: Numbers

Numbers can be considered to be like words, and mathematics can be like any language.  Both numbers and words are created by humans, but the concepts that they represent exist (i.e. a rock "is" just as pi "is") but those concepts would "be" even if the words "rock" and "pi" were never thought of by human beings.
