I'm not an expert, but I do recall from engineering school that the delta function is a mathematical approximation of what happens when you flip a switch. One moment there's nothing, the next moment there's something. The rate of change from 'nothing' to 'something' tends to infinite when the interval between 'off' and 'on' tends to zero. It's obvious that integrating the 'rate of change' function over the period of transition should yield the original 'something' back. No fancy metaphysics here, just simple logic.

" It looks like physics is clearer than I thought. "

Now you're on to something!
