That's a very interesting point. Please could the two of you develop it. Is it a philosophic conundrum or does it have actual practical relevance?

Bertrand Russell is quoted as saying....

"Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true."

And Albert Einstein....

"As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."
