I'd agree with you on the point that it is a human invention/discovery
of how we perceive the world. There are just somethings in the area which
people have real issues with the philosophical impact of the decisions
made with the mathematics of the area. I think at some point I
questioned myself would a god allow me to have negative space and time,
and as a result negative gravity? I'm probably not the first one to get
hung up on it though :P I just gave up and became more atheist as a
result and played more games with the maths :)
