Of course. Now, how is that related to whether they are "real" or not?

This is really just a silly argument about the meaning of "real". You
must know that; you started the side thread.

IMHO mathematical consepts in the main tend to be well defined or have
portions of well-defined-ness

unless you have a counterexample?

For instance, do complex numbers exist on Mars?

while ever a topic or concept has a strong notion of undefined-ness yes you
will miss the point and so will most other people

the point is that it is not well defined

one's view is therefore equal with another's however at variance they may be
