So, is your point that we need a cause against which to evaluate the success of our mathematics? That perhaps this sort of feedback that, persumably, you encounter on a daily basis, is something that does not come through rationality itself, but through the very real feedback of what you have chosen to protect?

I guess my previous post was a reflection that I am just a budding rationalist, and also that my skills have not been sharpened against the proper stone.
