In other words, the universe and everything in it is just a bunch of equations.
Maybe mathematics is GOD?
It almost seems that Christian theology is talking about mathematics when it gives God His essential attributes: Timelessness, omnipresence, immutability, perfection, omnipotence, sovereignty, omniscience.
OK, you can tie me up now!
The universe is merely an incarnation of mathematics. This is why mathematics can describe the physical universe so perfectly. The "prime matter" of the universe is mathematics.
Even consciousness may ultimately be explained using mathematics.
We think that the present universe started with an explosion, the Big Bang. All that exists was contained in an object which may have been of zero size. Yet from it our universe has evolved.
I propose that this mathematical point was nothing more, and nothing less, than mathematics.
Mathematics occupies no space and is not located anywhere specifically, yet it's everywhere. And it has an infinitely complex structure.
I think mathematics is independent of human thought. Independent of the physical universe. It is the soul of everything. It is timeless. It has always existed. It did not need to be created.
Physics, in its quest for a unified theory, has us now living in an 11-dimensional membrane, our universe is only one of an infinite number of parallel universes, and particles are nothing more than modes of vibration... mathematical entities...
Mathematical knowledge is boundless. There will always be more mathematics. Most of it incomprehensible to humans.
"How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought which is independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality? Is human reason, then, without experience, merely by taking thought, able to fathom the properties of real things?" Einstein
Yes, Albert. I believe the answer to that is yes. Remember your glorious Gedanken Experiments Albert?
"Is mathematics invention or discovery? When mathematicians come upon their results are they just producing elaborate mental constructions that have no actual reality... or are mathematicians really uncovering truths which are, in fact, already 'there' - truths whose existence is quite independent of the mathematician's activities?" Roger Penrose
Math has always been there, Roger. We simply discover tiny specs of an infinitely massive entity. We don't invent it.
If mathematics were a product of abstraction, why would it work so well?
Physics strives to find ultimate explanations for why the universe is the way it is. I don't know if that's achievable but I think the ultimate structure is simply mathematics itself.
Imagine how things were before there was a physical universe. No time. No space. No laws. Nothing except mathematics.
Somewhere in the depths of mathematics there are truths, perhaps in the form of equations that can be set up and solved, which would explain how the universe can materialize from mathematics. From there, the laws of nature can be derived step by step using only mathematics, without resorting to physical experiments.
Well, at the very least you must agree that God is one heck of a mathematician.
Yes, folks... you can tie me up now...
