The universe isn't "math". Mathematics is an invented human language which can be an efficient means of describing and predicting behaviours.

In the human world, a charismatic person with 110 IQ will do better than a math genius who can't dumb it down and create colorful metaphors close to 100% of the time.

All this math talk is way cool, but only a small handful on the planet might understand it....and these people would derive it On their own from basic first principles without you and I.
To all else in thread interested , I do not subscribe to divine. Unless you want to describe entity that understands source as divine, then so be it. 'Understands' is an important word......'Understanding' is physical math, but now Im rambling and I have NO clue how to word it for anyone outside my own part-time maddened mind.
There is static / zero or there is patterns. Divinity I do not believe created the patterns, perhaps there are 'answers/gods' that understand greater how to 'do the math' .
Sure the Greeks worshipped math (Pythagorous for example)..People tend to worship their metaphors. *shrug*
Yes well, if a Buddhist Guru had the audacity to approach Inanna and suggested that she learn to silence the chattering monkey that symbolized her ego she'd be having other ideas about which chattering monkey needed to be silenced, that's all there is to it.

Applied mathematics is only step Two in the universes language. I am not really talking about applied math.
Applied math is like learning 'mama' 'dada', but in time we will learn the 'physicality' of math, which will be like moving from saying baby words to being able to write a War and Peace type novel when you have the language.

Einstein used math to correctly describe gravitional waves in 1917, and only 2 weeks ago we proved the math.

So in time we will move further in our understanding of math and how it IS.

A lot of scientists and empiricists are closet platonic idealists.
