For me, as an ultraintuitionist or radical finitist, those are merely
some physical brain's exercises, therefore some physical processes
inside of *this* Universe. Mathematics is all inside neurology. At
least for now. But will remain forever inside some Turing machine.
TransTuring maybe, iff that is physically possible.

If this final frame is the physics or the mathematics, is a semantic
question. But even finite as it is, it's huge.
