Nature is completely classifiable by representations of certain symmetry
groups, of which the smmetric group of identical particles is by far the
most universal physical phenomenon detected by Boltzmann, Einstein,
Bose, Dirac and Fermi.

The most fundamental physical representation of numbers are the
dimensions of the representation spaces. Counting identical things is a
method of identifying a certain representation by taking the trace of
the identity. This is of course a building block of every brain or
computer that works on an image of the environment.

On the other hand all physical phenomena are described by algebras of
maps of which the dimension and symmetry of the argument and image
spaces are the most important and easiest to detect properties.
