Yes it does, when that calculus is over physical units. "Existence" has a different meaning in mathematics than in physics, but you know that, right?someguy1 said:Calculus doesn't claim anything exists.

Yes, but real numbers are attached to physical units, so what's calculus about when we do that?You'll never open a calculus text and have it claim that the real world is one way or another way or any way at all. Calculus is about the real numbers, a mathematical abstraction.

Mathematical physics makes physical claims though, about what physics is. It claims there are things called Kilograms and Coulombs, for instance, something mathematics by itself doesn't.Math makes no metaphysical claims. It provides toolsets.

I don't see that I made any such claim. I said they make it hard to accept the existence of actual points, except as the boundaries of an interval (of measurement). Can you point to the metaphysical argument in there, please?Those disciplines ALSO do not make metaphysical claims.
