Math is more fundamental and more real in my mind.  Physics exists as a way to approximate the perfection of mathematics.  That whole 10^80 atoms in the universe thing seems so confining and approximate, never liked it.  The math can soar with the eagles, no need to worry over the chronon, the Planck length, any of that icky real-universe stuff.
