We can imagine that the constants of physics could change from universe to universe, and thus the physical laws would differ, but math, especially the natural numbers must be the same in all universes. So math is more universal in the multi-universe sense than physics. However, since the laws of physics derive from symmetry, which is math and thereby universal, the form of the laws of physics must be universal. Only the constants can differ. Resulting however in a very different looking universes- and for most sets of constants no universe at all. So in the broad sense, math is god.
