Mathematics is Not a Language

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 2 Pages. 1 diagram

It is hypothesized that mathematics is not a language but a series of symbols used to make measurements which either combine or subtract them. It does not possess the ability to communicate any idea effectively because there are no concrete objects in mathematics. In real languages in which a person can communicate ideas to one another, both abstractions and concrete ideas are needed for meaning. The use of abstractions only as in the case of mathematics means that communication is avoided all together. This is why quantum mechanics, general relativity, string theory and other purely mathematical theories are not scientific theories but unfalsifiable conjecture without meaning. This is why they are still taught in schools and why they will never be falsified because they are unfalsifiable as they contain no meaning.
