Could the universe exhibit characteristics that can be described mathematically because math itself is an extant state of the universe, but one which is unobservable and non-deterministic?

Could math itself be an extant state of the universe, comprising abstractions that cause effects in our visible universe?

Perhaps, as Gauss wrote, articulating less "negative", "imaginary", or "impossible" terminology would make it seem more reasonable.

Instead of calling math an "abstraction", maybe it should be called a "state" and described as unobservable and nondeterministic.

Is math discovered or invented?

We've spent millennia discovering these relationships... so in the absence of more precise information I have my opinion.
