## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to define reality in the form of mathematical equation(s).

Do you think Mathematics is capable of such a task?

Because mathamatics seems to be designed to identify variables are we setting an impossible task for ourselves when considering the infinite number of variables concerned.

For example:

It's a bit like mathematically trying to define absolute nothingness i think.

Nothingness can only be defined by default as in by defining everything else we achieve by default an understanding of nothingness.

Is this the task we are trying to complete? The defining of nothingness by default.

A theory of everything would achieve by default a theory of "nothing"

But the real arguement is should we include the infinite variability factor in our maths as a standard rather than an assumption.

I am not a maths devotee but from what I have observed so far is that in looking for a constant we are in fact defeating ourselves when in reality there is no constant to be seen.

I know that many will look at this writing and want to pick holes in it's logic.....this is a given variable. but maybe some one will understand the point I'm attempting to make with out the worry of pedantic use of logic.

Can we attempt to define God in a formula?
