That the universe is ultimately mathematical
My proposal is that the universe can ultimately only be described
pragmatically-- that is, in mathematical terms, by its experimental behavior.
That matter itself is only a logical implication derived experimentally
by cause and effect. Which means that force and mass have no absolute values.
That is, a force of a relative value F is produced if we
accelerate a body with mass m of relative value m with accelerastion a.
And that distance and time are given relatuive values to accord
with such a measurement.
This of course is how we originally determined what mass is -- by a measurement
and then reified the experimental results as mass and force., but
these entities have no substantial definition other than such reifications.
