Oh I think so too :) But I was playing devil’s advocate as I’m often critical of the fundamental irreality of math and it ‘clicked in’ that quantity is category. So, to disentangle quantity, I think it might help to generalize to “category” and ask: Are categories real and/or valid?

So, to disentangle quantity, I think it might help to generalize to “category” and ask:

Are categories real and/or valid?

I suppose it’s possible for all categories to ultimately resolve to [SET OF 1 MEMBER], which might consequently dissolve mathematics.

But… that’s on a flat plane. “all things being equal”.

Does a “thing” have qualities?

Can those qualities go into categories?

If there is more than one member in a [[set of] ‘category’], you now have quantity.
