Abstract: 
This paper focuses on the intriguing relationship between mathematics and physical phenomena by arguing that the brain uses a single framework to order, arrange, and process basic information into more complex thought and knowledge. It argues that multiple incremental permutations of this single format eventually give rise to all abstract thought. The main thesis overcomes the epistemological complexities of the Frame(s) Problem by proposing that the primal frame of reference from which all conscious thought ultimately emerges is essentially an abstract representation of the four-dimensional properties of existence plus the genetically derived causal objective and the embedded emotional behaviours that even the lowliest cognitive organisms are born with, and which they automatically express as they struggle to exist within an ever-changing and often hostile environment.
