Just a quick question: could one argue that mathematics is the science of numbers.

Imagine the limitless fields of numbers.........0 to infinity or minus-infinity, real, and complex, fractions and whole.

Could one argue that "mathematics" is actually the "research and experimentation" of all the ways those numbers can LINK together?

Just another quick question that follows on from that: if we could label space-time numerically (somehow, obviously, space and time), could we "in theory" explain space-time using mathematics and only mathematics?

If so, could one suggest space-time represents a fundamental, however complex, algorithm, between the values of zero and infinity/-infinity?

If not, why not.

Any ideas?

I know it;s a simple question asked by all scientsists and mathematicians, because it;s obviously one of those DaaAA concepts (most of mine are), but I had a big New Years, and I need a refresher course on some basic axiom-ideals of mathematics and science.

(I have to go to night school, so I'll only be able to respond in 10 or so hours).
