"Both math and physics are ASPECTS of reality."????


You got that all wrong!


Both math and physics are ASPECTS of *YOUR* reality, not reality itself.


You simply are *structured* to view reality physcally and mathematically...

you are projecting...

you are reading into it, not reading from it.


It's an illusion! A very persistent stubborn illusion.

There is a differece between reading 'into' Nature, and reading 'from' Nature....



You people do a lot of 'reading into Nature'....I wish you would stop this nonsence.



You people give Nature a bad name?
