Yeah, Vsauce is one of the best things on youtube. Whenever a new one is out it's like christmas to me.

Also it isn't that clear cut that math is a science. Depends on one's definition. But I think arguing about definitions is usually really boring.

I've always considered math separate from the sciences because it's based on deductive reasoning, as opposed to inductive reasoning.

Okay, you're right, but as the thread creator, I say it's allowed.

This was actually really eye-opening.

I subscribe to Wigner regarding mathematics place in science. It's not science, but it's a language and tool that we use in science.

We are in a position similar to that of a man who was provided with a bunch of keys and who, having to open several doors in succession, always hit on the right key on the first or second trial. He became skeptical concerning the uniqueness of the coordination between keys and doors.
