The confusion arises with rapid and continuous jumps between World # 1 and World # 2, so one can get a sense that math is so intrinsically connected with World # 1 that without it a specific formula would not exist. That's not true. Formula would exist in mathematics in any case, but what the numbers represent, i.e. what they are counts of, must be explained in World # 1.
