## Is Mathematics a pure language, free of the ambiguities and pitfalls present in ordinary language communication?

Ordinary communication is riven with ambiguities, contradictions, manipulations, emotions, misunderstandings etc. etc., that makes communication so inefficient and contentious at times.

Is the language of Mathematics different? Can we rely on it to speak the truth?

something is only true until it is perceived. then it is no longer truth but only truth to the person who perceives it as such.

I an use arithmetic to say that 1+1=2, and all here would agree. However, I can use mathematics to show that 1+1=3 or more. Only those familiar with a multidimensional context would understand and agree.

I think that mathematics is more than a language. I think that it's a philosophy. I think that the multiverse is mathematical in nature, and that it (or at least its history) is best understood through the language of geometry.

Think about what Pi means at a deeper level. It reaches into the infinite, which is how it speaks of greater things that humankind, in its current capacity, is able to comprehend.

if you want to formalize real world statements precisely, you will need many lifetimes of work of experts. by the time they come up with a totally precise formulation of statements, we have arrived at a solution long ago. it is hopeless.
