The former is for me closer to the real world.

AN abstract with its concrete reflection.

And even the concrete reflection is an abstraction of a metaphor.

There was a bit of a distraction.

That's a good one. 8-)

Perhaps a starting point is a brief look at the Pythagoreans.



When Pythagoras came to Croton, he founded a philosophical school called 'semicircle'. The school had many followers, but the inner circle of the school had smaller number of philosophers/mathematicians who were called mathematikoi . They lived as if they were in a monastery, having no private property and observing a number of strict rules. Among other things, they believed that
  • Nature and the whole reality has an underlying mathematical structure
  • That philosophy should be used for spiritual purification
  • That the soul which is pure can rise to experience the union with the divine
  • That certain symbols (including mathematical) have a mystical significance.

Go up to the mountain-top and wait for the extraterrestrials to beam the advanced knowledge directly into your brain... :D

Nah, I got my tin foil hat on. Their beams can't penetrate that, even though they know how to create stars. A type 6 civilization, in fact. Ones that don't even cast a shadow. hehe
