Math is founded on the act of counting, or numerifying/quantifying Life. It is all about seeing
numbers around you. Now, what do we mean by a number? Are we talking about these things:
3, 25, 378? Well, actually, those are symbols that REPRESENT the actual numbers. Different regions of the world may use different symbols to represent them. You see, a number is an AMOUNT - so it is nothing without a "label". For instance, if I told you I was going to give you 30. And you thought, "Oh yeah, jackpot!" And then I gave you 30 cents. Womp womp. Always label your numbers. Otherwise, it is just an empty symbol. So what kind of amounts do you see around you? Maybe you see 3 people, 2 books? Get to counting!

Get ready to embark on this amazing journey to uncover the matrix of your Universe!
