thats what i meant. if you bothered to read my post i said basically the same thing. and why are you saying "to the earth" when you know it explains the entire universe. don't simplify and don't be a pedant.
in any case this thread is the ****ing stupidest thing because math is obviously our language while the principles they describe can't be changed. the argument is basically asking if math is both a language and a principle.
