Actually, Dirac “bridged math and physics” much earlier —

“Spinors, which are a kind of square root of vectors, had been introduced
in algebra and also in physics as part of Paul Dirac’s theory of the electron.
A spin structure on a manifold allows such square roots to exist.”

Poetic paraphrase
“How can we tell the singer from the song?”
