If you agree that this is correct:

"Substituting 'bananas' for 'reality', we get, Dr. Dick defines bananas to be a set of numbers and asserts that by studying a set of numbers we can discover the laws of physics that explain the behavior of bananas."

Then you have to allow me to do the same:

"It is incorrect to conclude that Dick asserts that by studying bananas you'll find "most of physics" there." (your statement)

"It is incorrect to conclude that Dick asserts that by studying a set of numbers you'll find "most of physics" there." (my first substitution)

"It is incorrect to conclude that Dick asserts that by studying reality you'll find "most of physics" there." (my second substitution)

The burden of proof is still on your side. Sorry.
