Mathematics is an exact science where there is no margin for error no matter how minute. Mathematics is generally an abstract study of space, quantity, change, and structure. It is the science that resolves “what is true” or “what is false,” with the use of formulations and patterns. In cosmology, the use of math symbols is differentiated with numerology wherein the former deals with cosmic mathematical symbols while the latter deals with the study of numbers’ influence in one’s life.
