They ain't. You know this. I know this.

Physics are very truthful. They never betray you: You managed to explode a rocket. Physics tell you if you do this one exactly this way again,

it will explode again.

Thatswhy i like them.

I like rules i can trust. I value loyalty.

She meant "Theoretical Physics", not basic physics.
A lot of theoretical physics is very speculative, like super-string theory.

When i start fascinating about m-Theory and all the Lie-groups in continous space again that are foldable into 23 dimensions... :)

There still is only one constant that bothers me. It is way to constant and you know it.

It is alpha. Tell her about coincidence.

That is great stuff. Was introduced to String Theory via Michio Kaku
Did not studied it as deep you it seems.
I wrote an e-mail to him, and got one e-mail back.
Probably made him angry with another e-mail with a very weird question.

About theories:
Often you can have completely different theories/models with the same result.
I noticed that many theories are tested in the same way over and over again,
in some cases with the same subjects or instruments,

Often it seems the strategy of: we found something that works, so let's stick with that.
For example: The theory of Cooper-pairs in super-conductivity. It seems to work.
But is that really the way it works? Do cooper-pairs also live in other places?
Or does it just work for that example?

Now I focus more on tests that might break one or more theories consistently.

You are so fucking purple. I just put two dolphins on your detail.

You won't drown. In this century. One of them dolphins is very young.

Regarding Cooper-pairs: This doesn't work. I can't prove anything researching pairs.

Still you won't drown. Just go into some water. Tonight, Prove me wrong,

Proof by ordeal. The ancient ways! For Odin!
