Math is math but for instance music is music but if you examine it it can be really about math. Sports its a bunch of women and men competing but it can be so much about statistics and math. So, I am wondering is there anything out there that you just have to really really stretch to make it about math? or you can not relate it to math? Or is number theory have a touch in every aspect of life?

this could easily just be old prejudices popping up here, but i would say having to analyze some literary text doesn't involve math in any way. if it did, it wouldn't be completely pointless.

I like Brad's prejudice here and do agree with his statement. However, if you take a closer look at literary text, the basic organization involves math. Each sentence is structured in a mathematical way, each line, each page, it's all math based. Text would not be organized if math couldn't number the pages, or columns, or rows etc. As for analyzing it, sometimes it could be sometimes not (probably more not).

Yeah, I don't think it would be possible to find anything that couldn't be applied to math in some way. Even the most basic aspect of math, counting, for example, could be a part of most things in the world. All material objects need to be a certain size, all aspects in nature have a lifespan, etc.

This made me think of that Jim Carrey movie "The Number 23". from wiki" The plot involves an obsession with the 23 Enigma, an esoteric belief that all incidents and events are directly connected to the number 23, some permutation of the number 23, or a number related to the number 23. "

Also, I've never seen this show, but on the Unusuals, there is a character who is obsessed with the number 46 in the same way!

$\kappa \alpha \lambda \lambda \iota \sigma \tau \iota$

/too obscure?

Is LOVE mathematical? haha

"you + me = us"

haha…I like that comment Josh. But what happens when you love yourself? Is that the identity?

Does love even have an identity? And if so, what do the inverses look like?
