Representation Of Objects In Math Not The Same As Object Itself.

Alex,

When you define existence as 1, non-existence as 0, you are using the mathematical aspect of existence to explain existence (or it's opposite) itself.

While it is true that existence has a mathematical mode or expression, it is not necessarily true that mathematics COMPLETELY defines existence. In fact, it is safe to say that 'Math cannot define all existence'. And this because Mathematics is only an aspect of the Whole of existence.

Every object or thing has a mathematical aspect which we can discern with the proper tools, formulas, etc. This is why we are able to build, calculate, study scientifically any aspect of existence: physical, organic, chemical, kinematic, social, political, etc. (in no particular order).

What do you think? Is there a flaw in my reasoning? I would like to hear back.

Michael M
