wow

If you mean the 1-10 system, (denary counting) then that's solely a social construct because for some reason the humans found '5' easy to remember and chunk things by and they figured 5 was too small but 5*2 was a good amount to make the minimum amount before you go to the '10'.

If you mean mathematics in and of itself, you are correct but no more so than someone who says without language the very same thing would be true. In fact, language is more essential than mathematics if one wants to comprehend ideas or use the information that is garnered mathematically, in a creative and/or extensive way.

If you didn't know how many children you had, how would you know that they had different names?

The fact is, you would have an appreciation of number irrespective of math.

Math always exist, no matter the universe
