 The language which we use to describe reality is mathematics right? Since
morality is part of reality we can use mathematics to describe that as well.
Decision, Game Theory and Propositional logic attempts to do just that
doesn't it?
 Mathematics is the world viewed from the 'outside'. Direct conscious
experience (Qualia) is the world viewed from the 'inside'. Don't you agree?

THE BRAIN is wider than the sky,
For, put them side by side,
The one the other will include
With ease, and you beside.
