Roger Penrose believes that mathematics is not something people invent, but something people discover. He points to the fact that mathematics can be used to describe the physical world in very precise ways as evidence for this. He also emphasizes the importance of the relationship between mathematics and physics, and how some mathematical concepts are so complex that they can only be explained by appealing to the physical world.

**00:00:00**Roger discusses how mathematics can be used to describe the physical world in incredibly precise ways. He also mentions how Einstein's theory of relativity has increased the accuracy of these descriptions.**00:05:00**Roger Penrose argues that mathematics is discovered, not invented. He points to the precision of mathematics on the macroscopic and microscopic levels as evidence. Mathematics has always been a subject which can be studied for its own sake, and is related to the structure of a physical world.**00:10:00**Roger Penrose discusses how mathematics can be viewed as both a "platonic absolute" and a tool that reveals the behavior of the physical world. He emphasizes the importance of the relationship between mathematics and physics, and points out that some mathematical concepts are so complex that they cannot be explained in terms of mental creations.
