Theoretical physics

Physics is difficult to study or discuss in written and spoken language. Because of this, many physicists describe natural phenomenon in terms of mathematics and mathematical formulas.

For better understanding the use of language to define current theories of physics and enable discussions on how physics theories affect our daily lives.

In order to have a theory of physics the mind must be open. Time, space, light, particles, the void all exist, though perhaps not as we define them.

Our perception of time is that it exists as past, present, and future. Even these three aspects of time, as we perceive it, are subject to perception.

It is interesting to note that

Space is perceived universally as distance between objects.

Objects are perceived as dense groupings of particles with dimensional form.

Light is perceived as either waves or particles. Often photons are referred to as wavicles as they behave in ways that can be measured as either.

In reality photons could be perceived in infinite number of ways. Waves and particles are merely ways that humans measure things. We have instruments to detect and study aspects of our universe. These instruments often determine how we model, or theorize, the elements of our universe.
