I agree, maths do not consciously contribute to wave reception, but waves or wave functions are he result of mathematical interactions between the values contained in the presently expressed potentials, before and after they interact. A fundamental condition which allows for certain phenomena to occur, but also disallows other phenomena to occur. Eventually this leads to orderly patterns, including humans. Our body is full of wave functions, from the most subtle cyclical behavior to the hula dance. Something just struck me, suppose the Higgs field is the dance floor of a field of vibrations (waves) and matter are the dancers which move in accordance to where the wave properites in the Higgs music lead us.
