Is Math A "human Product" Or Is Universe A Product Of Math?

I think, universe is such because of mathematics and mathematical rules. Theyt dictate what phenomena can and what can not exist. Consequences of those rules are what we call "natural laws" (like: inverse square, numerous conservation laws, Heizenberg and Pauli principles, relativity rules, etc.).

Therefore, what we see (observe in experiment) is mathematical outcome of many competing mathematical phenomena. If, in order to predict the result, we forget to include some of them or simply are not aware of some (and usually we do not know ALL mathematical phenomena involved), our incomplete model will be short in predictive power.
