Searching for an explanation is phenomenological too though, as are numbers. Arithmetic is part of sense. A sensorimotive circuit, to detect, model, and control. It's an experience which requires a very specific intelligence to participate in. We can control and detect by arithmetic modeling, but that doesn't mean the object of it's modeling is arithmetic. I think that I'm actually assuming much less - my primitive universe doesn't require any epiphenomena or disqualification of appearances.
