Is math a human interpretation of reality, or is it reality ? Does math exist outside of human thought ?

Math and numbers are the closest we'll ever get to God's handwriting.

Mathematics is an abstraction of reality. It isn't reality itself but an idealized version of it. Whether or not it actually represents reality in a meaningful way is an open question, as basic questions such as the existence of the continuum in reality aren't even answered.

Math is really cool

I think that is a good way to put it

What is "a math"? Can you point to it, draw a diagram of it? No. "Maths" is a figment of the human mind, just like love or justice.

mathematics is a logical recursive system where you can find some isomorfisms of the outside world

Mathematics is about numbers and calculations. It has nothing to do with reality, with physical world.
But everyone (humen, aliens, virtual characters) can use the same mathemaic calculations in any world (physical world, virtual world).

>>10665488
>Mathematics is about numbers and calculations
Wrong on a very fundamental level, which lets me doubt you have any mathematical knowledge past highschool level.

>It has nothing to do with reality, with physical world.
Wrong again, else physics would be considered a pseudoscience and be basically worthless.
It is also historically wrong, as mathematical ideas were taken from the real world.

It is daunting to assume mathematics is the framework of the soulless, physical reality, simply because theory and experiment align so well.

>reality

One thing I've often thought about, is - is:

1+1=2

or is

1+1 = 1+1
?

Essentially, do the primary, fundamental elements of reality have a unique "personality/coordinate/value", or are they just "placeholders" for an interchangeable value? Is an identical copy exchangeable for the original?

However you want to interpret reality niggers are still in it so it means shit.

>> No.10666904

These are meaningless questions that simply boil down to "you cannot know nuffin" and retarded mental masturbation. Whether it exists within human interpretation or outside of it is irrelevant because all you know is from the perspective of human interpretation. You can't simply hop out of human interpretation or human thought and then hop back into reality with the correct answer.
