Abstract: Mathematics could be seen as a "simple" mind game hardly more useful in everyday life than chess. But their "formidable efficiency" as the language with which are written the laws of Nature could be an evidence they are the Reality. Thus, Mathematics would contain all works of art past, present and future, but also their creators.
