We use numbers every day, but taking a step back, what are they, really — and why do they do such a damn good job of helping us explain the universe (such as Newtonian laws)? Mathematical structures can consist of numbers, sets, groups, and points — but are they real objects, or do they simply describe relationships that necessarily exist in all structures?
isnt that just weird discovery of 1-10 answered most of the question in-universe. What if we were wrong. What if actual numbers should be 1- 1* (some random number). why just 1-10 and then repeat.
