    Is there or could there eventually be an applied concept that has the potential to fully replace mathematics for use in quantities, space/space-time, changes, relationships, patterns and structure?

    No. If there were such a thing it would itself actually be just different mathematics. Mathematics is quite a bit more than just the study of numbers.

    To quote an old professor, "Mathematics is the study of any kind of order that the human mind can recognize."

    Would you say that mathematics are of a devine nature or just a human invention.

    To any one.

    Thanks

    DrRocket,
    I am reasonably sure that Quick is a sock-puppet for TheQuestIsNotOver, who was a reincarnation of StreamSystems who was the person responsible for an 'interesting' web site. (http://www.streamsystems.com.au/) which is now down.
    I base this on the peculiar sentence structure and the post topic.

    StreamSystem's web site contained such masterful prose as this:
    A new mathematical algorithm employing the use of a new set of number axioms, an algorithm that is able to define the equations for a sphere and circle. The theory here employs the use of a “square-rule” to develop the equations of a circle and sphere, that which mathematics has accepted as impossible, transcendental. The theory also explains the mathematical mechanics of the atom, how atoms associate with one another, and then draws up the most logical gross construction of space-time, similar to the reality we live within “incorporating” space-time

    Rgds
    John

    Quick,
    if I am mistaken, then please accept my abject apologies and welcome to the forum.
    John
