    But nature, and the way our perceptions work, does not. It measures constantly- by observing and relating patterns.

    Anyway, the fact that dogs can catch Frisbees is clearly and easily a way to show that creatures 'do the maths'.

    'Maths' (or as we usanians say, Math) is another way of analyzing what is being done, in an attempt to apply science, and not just perceptual experience, to the universe.
