When we talk about numbers, we can say that they are not tangible objects. By this I mean, you can not take number 5 and trow it to the bin, but what you can do is take page number 5 from a book and throw it to the bin.

From this brief introduction we can see that number do exist but they are a mathematical concept used for counting, something the human race created.

However, many mathematicians say that numbers exist but in another different space and time, they are abstract objects. This is called platonism.

Having this two theories in mind, we can now get to a conclusion. Numbers give us knowledge, and because of this the world works in a better way. Actually we can see numbers wherever we look at, although they are not physically there, we must apply formulas or calculations in order to find them.

When we look at our houses, we can also see numbers although in a blurry way. The walls, the microwave, clocks… In conclusion numbers are everywhere.

In my opinion, numbers do exist but I have a lot of arguments against this statement. What we know is that whenever we need to do something or create it, we need mathematics, and the base of mathematics are the numbers.
