Quoting the same page as the last post, watch how it sums up the resistance in the scientific community, against maths and physics being formally linked. This resistance leads to complete cognitive dissonance, where evidence for formal connections is explicitly referenced followed immediately by the denial that any formal connections are possible.

“…the surprising thing is that often some newly discovered abstract formulation in mathematics turns out, years later, to describe physical phenomena which we hadn’t known about previously…”

“…physics cannot be derived from mathematics alone…”

The first statement undermines the second statement.
