Math is more than a language? Of course it is! Math is much more than the language we use to express it.

Logic rules the universe? This is a much more arguable position. If what we know as "logic" rules the universe, then why are we still stuck with irrational numbers, why did it take half of last century before one person figured out the key to eliminating the infinite values of QM wave probabilities? Was it that Feynman was simply the "most" logical scientist around?

Or is it the case that we are confusing our understanding of the order to the universe with the order itself? It's a very tough distinction to see, but it is indeed one we must hurdle, lest assuming what we call "logic" is perfect, and relinquishing the tentative mindset that effective scientific inquiry demands.

What we call "logic" does not rule the universe.
