Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh boy.. physics do not address the question of what things are... just how apparently behave...Nailed.

I like your phrasing..."physics seems to be more useful..." one of my physics teacher said to me.. "ei.. no doubt about it, the question of "what things are" is very interesting , that's why it should be discussed in the bar as any other interesting stuff and not in the lab".

We belong to the same subsect of the same sect. Electrons are nothing.. they behave as something (and we created the name and the concept becasue it is useful and relevant to explain the world)...either this or one believes that matehmatical entities exist in reality (which some friends of mine do).

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
