Real as in it's something we know of, have words and symbols for and actively use to predict, describe + explain the world, ourselves, etc etc. it can be observed 'through a lens', as it were.

I mean obv at the end of the day it's a system working with abstraction and logic (requiring our created language to refer to it) but that's a fun little debate between the realists and their opponents in books that only frustrated college students read from

but as said above, you gotta effectively define 'real' first.

If math is not real...physics is not real...therefore we don't exist.

Only when it's not imaginary.

The safest place was not her arms, but her eyes
Where she can't see you
For her gaze, it blisters;

They're just the pathetically inadequate tools you pitiful humans attempt to use to 'understand' the multiverses you inhabit without even knowing that you do.

A study concludes that they have a %68.7 chance of being real.
Stay tuned for probability of the study being real

Math is literally without use to me, therefore your judgement means nothing, this field can die a horrible death, and mathematicians deserve a sulfur-drenched hell.

Math's usefulness or your expectation for bad responses? Please don't say both, that'd be cruel.

Doesn't work for systems larger than hydrogen atom (too many variables) so you have to do weird simulations and models when you add more than one proton / election to the equation.

Lol

I hate math because it's a boring pain in the ass and higher level math isn't very useful for most people, but if you sincerely think the entire concept of mathematics is useless in your life, you're kidding yourself.

I'm 100% serious, actually. Math has zero use to not just myself, but all of humanity. If math died tomorrow, the only people who'd show up to the funeral would be sort of acquaintances and they'd be on their phones during the service. If math posted on Facebook that it got its MSc, it'd get one Like from its grandmother. When math wakes up in the morning, it opens Instagram and sees all the other fields being happy and all it can do is think about its misery.

But we shouldn't feel bad for math, because math cut you off that one time. It also spilled your coffee on your mom that time she took a plane to visit, because math didn't like how sugary it was even if it was your damn coffee. Math made fun of your intellect, weight, home life, financial situation, dress sense, and friends in high school.

If hell exists, it'd be too good for math. Or maths, whatever that dick likes to call itself. Fuck math.

You're using a computer and on the internet.

And yeah, math is real. It's discovered, not invented.

I honestly can't tell if you're actually serious or being sarcastic.

If you're sarcastic, fair enough. If you're serious, you're an insane person.

No, you posed the question, the parameters are for you to define.

If you don't know how to properly phrase a question. Go learn how and then come back.

I didn't read the OP, but I'll say this.

I believe in the rational, irrational, real, imaginary and higher powers.

Math is as real as my belief...
