Do Numbers Exist?

Well? Do they? I'd argue that numbers are simply concepts that we, humans, apply to the many objects we see every day.  Think of it this way. You are in a room, and there are five people. Each of these five people have five cell phones.  Is five people the same as five cell phones? Is five an actual object? I do not believe that it is.

On a similar note, do ideas actually exist?


  1. Yes. I agree. I tend to think that time "exists" because space does. Also, without space, people wouldn't exist... since we ARE space (or at least occupy it ....). So, in effect, People create time.
