If anybody could imagine an advanced civilization with advanced knowledge of the universe(s) *but without a mathematical language*, how would they use their knowledge? How could it be possible to develop advanced physical concepts without mathematics?

If nobody here could imagine this, than here is another question:

Is there any language more general than math, math being perhaps a sub-set of it?

## Best Answer

Sure, some of us call it English.

I can teach and understand many lessons from physics without diving into the math. What's hard to do is discover or prove physics without math.

"A body at rest tends to stay at rest. A body in motion tends to stay in motion."

I can throw tons of math at that but the idea can be expressed without math.

Math can be used to make exacting predictions based on what physics teaches us but before that the best thing physics does for us is disavow us of misconceptions. Math isn't always needed for that.
