Leave "reality" to the Philosophers. It's not a useful concept in physics either. Physics is about what is observed, not about what "really" causes what we observe.Perhaps you mean "reality" in the sense that the word is used in Philosophy or Physics.

A point in mathematics is a fundamental concept used to represent a specific location or position in space. It has no length, width, or thickness, and is often represented by a dot or a cross.
In mathematics, a point is an abstract concept that has no physical dimensions, whereas a dot is a physical mark that has a finite size. A point is used to represent a specific location, while a dot is often used as a symbol to mark something or as a component of a larger object.
No, a point and a coordinate are not the same. A point is a general concept representing a specific location, while a coordinate is a specific set of numbers used to represent the position of a point in a coordinate system.
No, a point is an abstract concept that does not have a physical existence. It is used as a tool in mathematics to represent a specific location or position in space, but it does not have any physical properties.
In geometry, a point is used as a basic building block to define other geometric objects such as lines, planes, and shapes. It is also used to represent the location of important features or intersections in a geometric figure.
