I disagree that math is a form of metaphysics! Music and poetry are forms
of metaphysics in allowing a freedom for definition. I feel that math is
restricted to defined disciplines unlike reality which created levels in
existence! Math is limited/unlimited, neither fish nor fowl unlike
evolution which has restraints.
Evolution! Imho the musical scale Do, Re, MI_FA, Sol, La, Ti_ and Do etc.
repeating on a higher level is a model for evolution. Reality in evolution
has restraints. There is no infinite Evolution! It can be described as
discrete levels in existence.
Definitions cannot be the arbiter of reality since definitions in a mind
follow reality. IMHO Evolution is a discipline for conceptualizing reality.
I am unclear why the reality of evolution seems to be so abhorrent to
