Existence is what we call "1" or "yes" or "true", or "is", etc (welcome to add synonims you want). Absence of existence is what we label "0" or "no", or "false", or "is not", etc - feel free to select any symbol you like. Please, remember that "exist" is also a symbol - they all EQUIVALENT SYMBOLS. It does not matter which one you to use. Semantics is different, but result is the same.

Now, if you use "Yes/No" symbols, feel free to call it "logic". If you prefer to use "0/1", feel free to call it "math". If "exist/does not exist" - call it "philosophy". (This is what usually people label relationships between those symbols).

So, anything existing becomes mathematical itself, just because we label its existence by "yes"/no" = "1/0" symbols.

If we have more than 1 object (or phenomena, or whatever), we then assign labels "2", "3", etc. to them.

So, what special is then in "startling discovery" that all existing objects obey math? (=can be counted, added, multiplied, subtracted, powered, etc)? That is exactly what we labeled them to begin with.
