Hi Tom,

    I think that you are bring up a good point but I must ask about the 
nature of "invariance"! The notion of invariance involves a subject to which 
the invariance obtains. If there is no such an subject, what meaning does 
the notion of a invariance have?

I've been thinking about Platonia lately.  I've just finished reading
John Barrow's "Pi in the Sky" book, and he seems to have gotten wrapped
around the axle in regard to mathematics and Platonia.  I think that
mathematics is not primarily about numbers.  Mathematics is about
invariance.  Invariance is not about any *thing* (existence)
specifically.  Perhaps this thought can shed light on this somehow?
