File this one under the “geeky numbers” category. I was listening to the radio this weekend and caught bits and pieces of THIS RADIO show. It was the WNYC radio show called “Radiolab” from October 9th and they had an entire episode on numbers. Grant it, this doesn’t necessarily have to do with money or finance but it does have to do with the paradigm in which we, as humans, understand numbers. If you have sometime in the car it is worth a listen.
I especially enjoyed the first part of the show in which a French thinker explains how we, as humans, have innate sense of numbers. Albeit, we don’t have the same understanding as our culture ultimately teaches us. Instead, our innate sense is logarithmically-based.
