Mathematical or natural objects (IM 625)

Let’s take a sphere. Is the sphere a part of nature or is it a mathematical object? This is difficult for mathematician or a normal individual to say. Most of the objects present in the nature are described and supported by mathematical theory.

As a result, it is very difficult to distinguish mathematical object from the natural object. It follows that all the mathematical concept is actually the part of nature.
