" So what you really derived is the wave function, which of course follows from the shift symmetry "


I meant to say wave equation


But I can answer this question:

***I always had it with me that physics is nothing but a subset of math. The real questions for me are quite easy to ask but very difficult to answer: how do we determine what portion of math is physics, and what do we call the rest? ***

The part of math that is physics is the part that has been verified experimentally. The rest has various names like mathematics, theory, metaphysics, cosmology...

Regards,

Richard
