Just to be clear, I'd like to cite your premise, deductions, and conclusions in a clear format:

(1) Something material exists for no reason which we will call 'stuff'

(2) This 'stuff' has natural properties not determined by logic/math.

(3) This 'stuff' is representable by symbolic notation (e.g., 1='stuff' 0=no 'stuff')

(4) This symbolic representation is enough to account for the body of logic and then mathematics.

(5) As a representation this body of logic and mathematics restrict the properties of (2)

>>>If Anything Exists, It Obeys Math By Definition.>Because math is nothing more than labeling existense=1, non existense =0. By doing so, we SET binary logical rules (either 1 or 0, but not both).>>If nothing exists, there is nothing to assign 0/1 to (nothing to count yet).>So, math does not apply to NONEXISTING objects or worlds (well, actually you still can call them "0" and thus make math valid for them too).
