So, mathematics has become theological because it treats real numbers as individuals although they cannot be named and it admits transfinite numbers that cannot be written out by a sequence of strokes.
Thus, if it cannot be done by a doing, then it ought not to be admissible as doable.
If I look at a pen sitting on my desk, it appears to me in a certain manner that I call an appearance.
Were I looking at the pen from across the room, it would appear to me in a different manner that I would also call an appearance.
But, I am not across the room. I am where I am.
In fact, no one is across the room. I am alone.
Since there is no one to witness what appears from across the room, there must be no appearance from across the room.
On that account, the "physical interpretation" of number corresponding with the empirical counting of tokens yields:
Perhaps there is a religion where appearances appear even where there is no witness to the appearance.
