What I say and what I think is that there is a fundamental difference between physical and mathematical laws(axioms,rules)so physical laws can not be viewed as derived from,mathematical that's why physical formulas are PHYSICAL RELATIONS between PHYSICAL parameters WHOSE FORMULATION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MATHEMATICAL AXIOMS.Mathematics is useful because its subject are the numbers.The goal of mathematics is to describe the universe of numbers not the physical one.So what I think is that the mathematical theorems like the incompleteness one that you used in your previous posts have nothing to with the physical system of axiomsthe physical laws.As far as your question about temperature is concerned I only want to say that the numbers we use to describe temperature are quantities ultimately detemined by the physical laws of nature not by the axioms of mathematics.The concepts of mathematics are useful just when we are dealing with only the very numbers and meaning they give the physical concept behind them.They are not detemining the very physical laws they are just a representation of them.
