Re: Alternate Universe Possibility?

Dave, I took a fast look at Tegmark's Mathematics of the Universe. What I saw encouraged the question I keep wanting to ask but feared the answer would be over my head. It probably is but here goes.
When you call the universe "mathematics", are you talking arithmetic with equations for proof, etc.? Or are you talking geometry? I know the universe is full of geometry - all kinds, everywhere. From what I saw, Tegmark was illustrating the geometry of the universe. That is easy to see - although, admittedly, I did not go all the way. I do not understand what you mean by "the universe is mathematics". Can you explain exactly what you mean by the universe being pure mathematics? Or, is it too deep a subject? Don't fear saying so. I know my limits.
