Is Math Discovered Or Invented?

Mathematics is one of those things that deeply fascinates me but that has always gone over my head no matter how much I try to study it. Among its most intriguing qualities is whether it has any independent existence outside of human observation or thought, or whether it is wholly or largely an artificial concept.

The following five minute video briefly covers this intriguing question. I found it fairly easy to digest despite my ignorance of the subject.

If anyone out there is well versed in mathematics, feel free to weigh in with your knowledge?
