What are the origins of math? | The Kavli Foundation

“The recent discovery of the Higgs boson particle, which was predicted by mathematical formulas, shows the power of math to describe and predict the world around us–from the helical structure of DNA and the spirals of galaxies, to how rapidly epidemics spread and our universe is expanding. But is that because everything in our world is inherently mathematical and follows precise rules? Or do we tend to see mathematical patterns everywhere because of the way our brains embroider an orderly overlay over what we experience?”
