No need for more off topic subject. I almost did not open your link as I noted "Plato" in title. I am quite aware that Plato would have supported the idea that the math correctly describing some observations was more real than the observed things. That was the reason he constructed his famous story about people living in a cave with shaft of sunlight casting shadows of the reality of Earth above on a wall of the cave. Expert scholars in the cave had evolved predictive theory about how the shadows would move, etc. and the shadows were believed by all in the cave to be the true reality. I.e. before opening your link, I guessed from "Plato" in the title that is would be an argument that particles were like the shadows on the cave wall, and not the true mathematical reality creating those particle shadows. I did, however, open your file and read the first 1/5, then skipped some and skimmed the end. Thanks for it, but I don´t time, and in some parts background, for detailed consideration of it. Our argument about what is real and what is just descriptive calculations is ~2,500 years old and not likely to be resolved soon so I agree to drop it.
