: : : I mean, that nature-living system is not controlled through mathematics.

: : Sure it is.

: No. Math is only describes nature. It is a language. That is all. : To say that nature is controlled by math is to say that the language used : to describe a thing controls that thing. That is certainly not true. : Gravity is much like that. Einstein nevery explained gravity. He just described it better.

Math is not only a description of nature. It is not merely a language. It is the substrata of the universe. This is as good a metaphysics philosophy as any. Prove me wrong.
