"It is only an interesting side issue to my work that it turns out that most of physics is true by definition. It is none the less a very interesting issue."

WHY???

Choose your option:

A) Your paper has mistakes and this conclusion was arrived at hastily.

B) The paper only has equations that look like well-known physics equations, but upon closer examination the definitions of variables actually have quite different meanings.

C) It makes assumptions that all physicists make when constructing a physical theory (e.g., certain symmetries), and therefore you reach the same conclusion.

D) The paper was constructed as an 'after the fact' event in which you carefully constructed the equations to come out just so - which only makes it appear that physics is true by definition.

E) Your paper captures the assumptions that actually restrict human perceptions, and since science is based on human observations, these correct assumptions restrict the kind of science that we can construct.

F) It captures assumptions that are actually true of absolute reality, and therefore all scientific results mirror what must be true of absolute reality.

G) You don't know

H) It's a complete and utter mystery

I) We simply cannot comprehend anything so why even bother offering these options
