Today in TOK we talked about math and how we can perceive it in different ways. To some people math can represent the purest form of knowledge, but to others it can be very subjective or seem irrelevant to real-life situations. I personally don’t like math. I see math as a mostly separate entity from the world we live in. I know some theoretical physicists would explain how mathematical equations can serve to define the universe we live in – but I don’t really care about it. Following the conversations about math in TOK today was hard because it seemed that, at times. everyone was talking about completely different things that they found difficult to explain with language. Math seems to be a kind of language in its own right, but I would rather just stick to more tangible ideas.
