This is remarkable difference between humanities (which are creation of pure human imagination) and science (which exist independent of humans). All philosophies, religions and other humanities change with evolution of our brain and social environment but neither math nor physics change as we learn more about nature. They can't - because they are INDEPENDENT from humans. Did you try to think, why math in any civilization is EXACTLY THE SAME regardless different notation? Why is alien, Egyptian, Greek, Arabic and whoever-else right triangle theorem (=Pithagor theorem) EXACTLY the same? Why regardless symbols you use, a^2+b^2= always c^2 in right triangle? Why for ALL civilizations sin^2+cos^2=1 ? Why F=-GMm/r^2 for a civilization around Sirius, around Sun and around star cross the Universe?

Newtonian physics is valid, correct and accurate and is used all over in engineering, technology, everyday life, space exploration, etc. (Othervise we would not study it.) As we discover more about nature we NEVER discard previously proven theories (as they do in religions and philosophies, by the way) - they stay. They just become a part of BIGGER theory. For example - Newtonian physics after Einstein was not CORRECTED (it is still the same) but was found to be a low-speed part of special relativity.

Make the following exersise - take SR equations and write them for velocity much less than trhe speed of light (v
