Hi meekerdb 

My description turns out to be essentially the same as Tegmark's,
namely that the world is mathematical at base.

Google that name to see.

Quantum mechanics is not physical nor is string theory.
How the physical world comes from the quantum world is a matter of

QM is a mathematical *description*, or more accurately a schema for a 
description. Don't take the map to be the territory.
