The answer is Yes! If "frutyiolpfs" passes observation and experiment,
and you are structured to
view reality as frutyiolpfs, then it is scientifically valid.

Change the structure of your brain and you change your reality, the way
you view the universe.

Currently, you are structured to view the universe as
mathematically...somewhere else...maybe another
planet, some alien on a flying saucer may have a different brain
structure...frutyiolpfs.

How do you think the alien from another planet flies the flying saucer?
