Numbers. What are they? Nobody can really give a solid explanation of this because nobody really knows. Numbers are just something that we've been taught for years. They fill our heads and the world around us. You lose a sports game by a number. You win a sports game by a number. Your house has a number. Everything is built using numbers, which are turned into measurements. The things in your house were bought from a store for an amount of money which is a number. You work for a number of hours, which translates into another amount of money in which you get paid. This amount of money helps you buy a number of physical objects which you can flaunt around to a number of people, friends, family, acquaintances. This number of people, your audience can be seen on social media, in which the number of likes, tweets, posts, followers, all add up to who you are. Who you are is represented to the general people through polls and statistics. Generalized in the newspaper and in politics.
