If you think you know, publish your theory in a mainstream journal and go collect your Nobel Prize.

No, it is true in Mathematics.

Well, you've contradicted yourself again. You claim there are no absolutes yet you are claiming that monism is an absolute truth. Certain types on non-physical possibilities are beyond empiricism and therefore beyond science. I am thinking here about the general idea of `God', not necessarily any sectarian idea of `God'. Well, the assertion `God exists' is a not a testable hypothesis and so it falls outside science. So your claim "Either something exists physically, or it doesn't exist at all" is unscientific. You are just making a speculative philosophical claim. Besides, `physical' isn't very well defined in such philosophical banter.
