How does math start? By assigning symbols to objects (and to their properties) and calling those symbols numbers. It may seem to be a human task. But nature already did most of it: any object in nature (including universe) either exist or does not. This property lends itself to be labeled as yes/no or 1/0, and that is HOW math starts.

So, math (existense/inexistence) is NOT human invention - it exists objectively. That is why the result of math (addition, multiplication, algebra, calculus, etc) corresponds correctly to reality (=universe is mathematical) - because it (result) follows from fundamental property of objects of reality to exist/not exist.
