If something was purely mathematical, how could anything perceive it?

We can't see space out there. We see colors and shapes which invite a 
spatial interpretation based on our experience of navigating our own body 
through a world of tangible bodies.

Is space inevitable in math without geometry, or is it just adapted to math 
from a geometric analysis of our bodily experience?
