Compare it to the difference between (universal) algebraic and (human) numerical mathematics.

First, I see a "universal value" as the sum potential contained in the object. This gives the object a value relative to the values of other objects with different inherent potentials.

The greater the mass of a star the greater it's relative "value" (description of the value) of gravitational impact on the spacetime fabric.

And it is well established that matter behaves in accordance to relative environmental influences and in relation to each other. It is the common denominator found in GR.

The universe does not "know" mathematics. It functions by responding to natural causalities of all sorts, each with their own value relative to values of all other things and their mathematical interactions. These relative values are derived by the constituent physical values of the parts of the object.

IMO, in all human descriptions of universal values and functions, "relativity" is a fundamental part of all equations.

OTOH, QM does not bother with relativity because it is a discreet quantum function, which yields a result.

I believe this difference in QM and GR is still an unresolved problem in the current science.

But it is undeniable that the universe has mathematically measurable physical qualities (values), which are observable as constants and common denominators of the way the universe works.

Humans recognized these constant natural functions and gave them names and symbolic representations and "human maths" is indeed a correct

*symbolic* representation of what the universe does naturally without knowledge of human given "names" and arbitrary "numerics" as a result of specific causalities and effects.

(

*interestingly, many universal physical functional constants were first identified as gods, i.e. Thor, etc.*)

Our symbolic mathematics allow us to predict future events. The production of a Higgs boson is proof of the accuracy of human mathematics describing the mathematical aspects of universal actions and change.

IMO, the concept of a mathematical universe is simply elegant and I suspect that such a perspective would solve many outstanding scientific questions to which the answers are not immediately physically observable.

Hope I have permission from the mods. I have posted this several more times before, but I believe that for the layman this is an informative, entertaining video, which really makes you think and gain new respect for the elegant beauty of universal mathematical physical patterns.
