But Space Is Not Symmetric

We know from the solution of General Relativity that space in the vicinity of massive bodies is not symmetric, black holes being the extreme example. Does that negate you claim that all laws come from math symmetries?

And why couldn't be the other way around, that math symmetries come from physical laws. What makes math more fundamental than physics. For example we know that particles and fields exist. But does math have the same existense. And if it does not, how can things that exist come from things that do not exist?

Just to be honest, I do not know the answers nto these questions, but they are interesting.
