The mathematician and mathematical physicist Alain Connes has expressed in many occasions that he is a Platonist and he thinks that mathematics itself does exist in the same level (or even in a "stronger" level) as physical reality.
This is very similar to Max Tegmark's hypothesis of the Mathematical Universe (MUH), which basically says that every mathematically possible structure exists as its own universe.
Since both approaches are almost identical, I was wondering if Connes has ever commented anything on Tegmark's views. I cannot find anything on the Internet, but since both ways of thinking are almost the same, it seems strange to me that Connes has never said anything about it. Does anyone know if Connes has commented anything on this?
