La science doit disposer d'un espace théorique. Il n'y a de science que dans la mesure où les scientifiques sont capables de concevoir un cadre théorique virtuel et contrôlé. C'est dans ce cadre que l'expérimentateur doit plonger le réel. Il ne peut en aucun cas se contenter d'obtenir des résultats chiffrés. Il existe un noyau commun aux mathématiques et à la notion de métaphore. De fait, il est correct de dire : le cœur est une pompe. En retrouvant dans le langage, qui est le lieu de la métaphore, les objets mathématiques, il serait alors possible de construire un nouveau langage. Cette nouvelle langue ou ce nouveau mode de la pensée apporterait une meilleure compréhension du monde. L'Univers a des propriétés qui ne dépendent pas de la matière. L'ensemble du monde qui nous entoure est soumis à des lois qui donnent à l'Univers son état actuel. Tous les objets qui nous entourent y obéissent, notre cerveau également. Il est donc normal de penser que les idées issues de notre cerveau sont elles aussi des productions de ces lois générales
