Everything Comes From Math. Why Should Math Come From Somewhere?

Social life is brain chemistry of many interacting individuals, life is just a bunch of chemical reactions, chemistry is just physical interaction of charges (QM), physics is just math, math is just logic.

Should logic (therefore, math) come from somewhere?

Imagine God pointing a finger toward empty vacuum and saying: "Let this be called ZERO", and then pointing finger toward himself: "Let this be called ONE, and let call this labeling NUMBERS and all what follows from it, let's call MATHEMATICS"

Does universe need someone pointing finger at it to behave according to 1+0=1 rule? And all arithmetic, algebra and calculus which follow?
