The Mandelbrot set contains the points (C) that satisfy the purely mathematical condition of not escaping to infinity when iterated as (Zn+1 = Zn^2 + C).

In the picture, we present a modification of the set in which the orbits of each escaping point are drawn (Buddhabrot). Different colours are assigned depending on the amount of the iterations applied before existing a stable orbit.

Engineers and physicist use mathematics as the language to describe reality yet its foundations (ZFC core) are thought to be independent of our existence.
