Alex,

I didn't realize that you held a different definition of what it is to be mathematical. For me, being mathematical is to imply something objective about the object that is true even if humans were not around.

Okay, so using an objective definition of mathematics that states that an object is mathematical if has mathematical properties (e.g., Pythagorean's theorem expresses distance, etc), then isn't it true that in your view a logical/mathematical order must exist *conceptually prior* to any thing that might be considered physical?

In other words, any physical reality possesses mathematical properties by the necessitated fact of its existence? That is, it is required by logic that a physical existence has a mathematical existence. Would you agree?

Warm regards, Harv
