I’m a fan of MinecraftSekrets and since its so hard to message him my idea I thought I would make a separate post for all of it. So MinecraftSekrets, if you are reading this, sorry for so many messages :(

Second part below
We think of the universe in mathematical terms. Everything we know is quantifiable with numbers which gets used every empirical science to validate what we already know and discover more about the universe.
What if, somewhere on another world, there is a completely alien species that doesn’t think in terms of mathematics. What if they thought of their world as literature and used books and words to understand their world, or philosophy, or religion, or really anything else besides math.
Think about other ways to look at and understand the universe because science is already out there, no matter if you know the Earth is moving in a straight line through curved space-time around the Sun or that you think a magical chariot draws the sun across the sky every day, there’s still day and night.
Just a thought.
