**question about math as an universal language**

Hi

I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, my first time here

I have some interest in thing like SETI and was curious about mathematics, as a universal language to communicate with ET, using prime numbers and such

As math is based on human logic,definitions and assumptions Is this truly a statement I can blindly accept ?

Can alien intelligence have a type of math or logic that is so different we can't understand it?

Part of why i am curious about this is I seen in SCI-fI is that chemistry is the one true universal language because of the periodic table

Are there books or websites that talk about this in layman terms?
