Calibrations of Mathematics and Science

We can use The Ontology to place the depth of theories and concepts from mathematics and science. The layer that the theory or concept is rooted in is to the left of the period, and the depth of the root within the layer is to the right of the period (as a decimal). Values in curly brackets after “0” or “9” represent the order of infinity required to characterize how close the decimal is to zero or unity, respectively. Entries at the top of the list have the greatest depth, and these require the greatest insight in order to be thoroughly understood. This explains why, for example, the Riemann Hypothesis and the Theory of Everything seem to elude understanding at the current levels of mathematical and scientific knowledge.
