Have you ever wondered what humans did before numbers existed? How they organised their lives, traded goods, or kept track of their treasures? What would your life be like without them? Numbers began as simple representations of everyday things, but mathematics rapidly took on a life of its own, occupying a parallel virtual world. Brian Clegg explores the way that maths has become more and more detached from reality, yet despite this is driving the development of modern physics.
