In reply to comment: What is the definition there? (see in situ)

Existence, no. Emergent

Emergent. You recognize "a pair" of items mentally and conceptually. The concepts are an emergent property of your cognitive mind noticing a physical pattern when you interact with matter (objects).

The "numbers" don't exist. Just as I stated in the last post. "Numbers don't exist in the ether somewhere."

They only "exist" like your recognition of "a crowd" or "a forest." A label you give it when you see it physically in nature.

Does "crowd" exist? Or just people?
Does forrest exist? Or just trees?

The concepts emerge when you see the pattern of "many people" or "many trees" in nature. You do not place the concept of "forrest" on the shelf in your bedroom when you are not using it. It does not "exist" in that way, no.
