Is that Feynman saw mathematicians as caught up in their own fantasies (self-gratification sex) and he saw physics caught up in describing the real world (sex in a relationship). Don't take this the wrong way (..I love that phrase..), but it seems like your treatment of mathematics is a lot like what I imagine Feynman thought about sex with one's self. You might have fun, but in the end all of this is in your head. To date, you haven't given me a shread of evidence that all of these equations aren't your mathematical fantasies on paper.

Sorry for the (very) crude analogy, but I thought the Feynman reference made a valid point in terms of your model.
