In fact, materialism cannot explain matter, either. Worst, it avoids trying
explain it at the start.
It's not worse, it's logic. Whatever is taken as fundamental in a theory
something explained in the theory. Your theory takes numbers and arithmetic
It is logical in the case of arithmetical realism to assume numbers are fundamental
because it is provable that the numbers cannot be explained in terms of anything simpler,
I'd like to see that proof. I don't think 'red' can be explained in terms of something
simpler - but that doesn't mean it's fundamental nor that it can't be explained.
"Simpler" can be a complicated concept.
but there is no known proof (or even an argument offered by materialists) that matter
cannot be explained in terms of something simpler.
Of course not. That would the point the it's fundamental.
