Being ignorant of the meaning of these mathematical abstractions does not in any way undermine them. It simply means you have not taken the time to learn mathematics before commenting. It's not just math that has this level of abstraction, so do other subjects, like economics. As an example, the amount listed in your bank account is not a reference to any specific, unique, set of dollar bills.
