Interesting. How do you know? I mean, the idea that abstract
objects don't interact with concrete object is usually regarded
as a logical truth (and one that realists concede as well as anti
which makes Benacerraf's argument powerful. But, hey, if you know

that your reality is not the result of "the usual mathematical sense

It doesn't matter what sense. It is some non-zero sense, so any
about my reality must assume something about reality.
