If the universe is infinite then there are enough objects to
support an interpretation of the mathematics of the natural numbers
(and arguably also of the reals) in which each object we are commmitted
to is a physical object.
I believe that I said in my original post that the predicates and
relations in such an interpretation would not be interesting to
physicists, though perhaps I was too telegraphic about this point.
