Weyl on mathematics vs. reality

‘A science can never determine its subject-matter expect up to isomorphic representation. The idea of isomorphism indicates the self-understood, insurmountable barrier of knowledge. [...T]oward the “nature” of its objects science maintains complete indifference.’ (Weyl 1934:19)

‘This – for example what distinguish the colors from the point of the projective plane – one can only know in immediate alive intuition.’ (Ibid.)
