You said, ". The biggest possibility, I think, is that our laws of physics is based on the conceptual schemes we use to construct them. If you change the conceptual scheme, then the laws of physics would be different"

Not sure exactly what you mean by conceptual scheme- assumptions, symmetries- But I am amazed that the same equations, say for quantum mechanics, can be derived from such different assumptions.

This is what leads me to think of myself as a constructive empiricist.

I wonder if you also see the ordinary conception of reality as not available from the assumptions of physics theories?
