We provide strong pieces of evidence that mathematics of three-dimensional hyperbolic manifolds of the first, second and third smallest volume are captured by the physics of three-dimensional theories composed of a complex boson and a Dirac fermion, both of a unit charge, coupled to a U(1) gauge field with the Chern-Simons levels -5/2, -7/2 and -3/2, respectively.
