"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.
