Lacking in Gravity

(Hi! Been a while. I've been traveling. Details posted elsewhere, but if you're interested, drop me a note and I'll send you a link.)

So, my husband and I were discussing the New York Times article about gravity tonight, and rapidly descended into silliness. It went something like this:

Him: Space-time has curvature in the presence of math*. (*he meant 'mass' but that's where the conversation went off the rails)

Me: If we accept the conservation of math, than math can be neither created nor destroyed. And if an equation is true in the woods, does it matter if no-one is there to solve it?

(This actually turned into a discussion of Platonic truth. Are we geeks, or what?)
