Agree. Mathematics is just a language, a description, of physics, not
the physical reality itself.

By the same token, some of today mathematicians should realize that the
natural numbers (and truths of FOL language expressions about them)
don't exist as a concrete truths that logic has to reference, as they
tend to _wrongly believe so_ after Goedel's Incompleteness.
