Abstract: Anybody can count: 0,1,2,3,…,∞. We learn to count even before we learn to speak, yet we are not aware of its power or its sublime beauty.  Counting arguments, seemingly simple, are yet very powerful and gracefully elegant in Mathematics, and is widely applicable in science, engineering and in daily life. In this talk we celebrate the power and beauty of counting while encountering Prime Numbers and the Uncountable along the way.
