Looking at Numbers

–Mathematics and music from a platonic point of view
–Numbers as Pythagoras might have seen them
–Numbers producing images and music too
Numbers are part of nature. Observing them, looking at them, thinking about them, is a way of understanding our relationship to nature. But when we do so in a technical, professional way, we tend to overlook their basic appearances, the things we can understand by simply “looking at numbers.”
