And they are such because of math. It is just historically that we first see a phenomena (=make an experiment)and then find math RESULTING in this phenomena.

This does NOT mean, that math RESULTS from this phenomena.

Say, inverse square curve does not result from gravitational interaction experiments, but vice vice versa - mathematics of exchange by virtual gravitons in 3-D space results in inverse square function of a distance thus in what we see in experiment and what we label a "Newtonian Inverse Square Law of Gravity".
