Today we’re talking about mathematics. But don’t let your eyes glaze over, because there are no formulas to memorize, no problems to solve and there will be no quiz at the end.

In fact, we’re not even looking for answers as much as we are enjoying asking the questions, says astrophysicist Mario Livio.

His 2009 book Is God a Mathematician? asks the big questions about math, and how it explains our entire universe.

Or does it? See, that’s one of the questions.

So here now my 2009 interview with Mario Livio.

MMario Livio is 78 now. He is continuing his work on the emergence of life in the universe.
