you're confusing conceptual and abstract. they're different.

concepts are the components of thought, and require a mind.

logic (math) is abstract and does not require a mind.

the question of whether or not logical absolutes can exist without a universe is probably not a useful one to consider.

axiom: there are two kinds of spaces used in programming: 1) block indentation, and 2) alignment (for long lines, variable initialization lists, etc...), and type 1 always appears to the left of type 2 on any given line.

if you use the same character for both then you are unnecessarily contributing to the heat-death of the universe.

The absent ones are always at fault.
