Greetings forum members,

I am a great follower of all mathematical posts, but I am still haunted by the notion that mathematics relies on principaled observation, and not necessarily what their equations result to.

Of course mathematics can prove phenomena physics can not put better into words as mathematics can do with numbers, but can the use of mathematics actually lead us on linear chases of formula that can actually mislead physics into making words out of numbers that really do not state actual facts of observed phenomena?

Has this ever happened in the history of mathematical exercise?
