What does pure mathematics describe exactly? What are its laws based on?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Recall the psi beta function. It was used for purely mathematical persuits and it was believed it did not pertain to our physical reality. In 1969, Venetziano observed a relationship between the behavior of particles (or strings) and the mathematical properties of the psi beta function. Could it also be that other aspects of pure mathematics describe the most abstract aspects of this universe and we are unaware of it? After all, mathematics is based on physical law right? If we build on the physical law, logically, we will come to a point where we exit the realm of what has been discovered and confirmed and enter one that has not been investigated by experimentation or physical theory--but instead mathematical theory which appears to have no relations to our physical reality.

What is your take on this? If I have made errors please do the honors of correcting me. Is my understanding of what "pure mathematics" is incorrect? Please tell me if this is so.
