dr dr dr! im cia he wasnt alone uh you dont get to bring friends theyre not my friends dont worry no charge for them and why would i want them they were trying to grab your prize they work for the mercenary the masketta man bane aye get them on board ill call ittin the flight plan i just filed with the agency lists smee maimen doctor pavelheer button lee juan ovyu first one to talk gets to stay on my aircraft who paid you to grab dr pavel he didnt fly so good who wants to try next tell me about bane why does he wear the mask a lotta loyalty for a hired gun or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane at least you can talk who are you it doesnt matter who we are what matters is our plan if i pull that off will you die it would be extremely painful youre a big guy for you was getting caught part of your plan of course dr pavel refused our offer in favor of yours we had to find out what he told you nothing i said nothing well congratulations you got yourself caught sir now whats the next step of your master plan crashing this plane with no survivors no they expect one of us in the wreckage brother have we started the fire yes the fire rises calm down doctor nows not the time for fear that comes later

comment Why are the physical sciences described perfectly by mathematics?
Your answer sounds a lot like this. While I don't really like Arnolds pov, I think yours is the most reasonable answer so far.

comment Can a scientific theory ever be absolutely proven?
@AdamRedwine: I'm not sure how related this is, given that it applies only in certain frameworks and conditations.

I doesn't prove anything. (This might however lead in a discussion about the term "prove".)

comment Can a scientific theory ever be absolutely proven?
"However within the domain of our model we are completely certain the model works" - Can you explain this statement? Is it ment in an absolute sense (justification) or do you interpret "we can" as "it's possible to imagine a world where everyone agrees on this". Or do you mean it as a suggestion, as in "to do it is a good idea, because otherwise you'd worry to much and that's unhealthy". And who is "we" in this sentence?

comment What does spin 0 mean exactly?
As finite compact Lie-groups are very well understood, I'd say you can give a deep explaination for everything in this subject, hehe. The raising of the eigenvalues and the angle dependence is "visible" in the explicit construction of all the according representations, see e.g. Wigners matrices. They fulfill a nice eigenvalue equation and so higher spins "turn faster". But from a conceptual pov I'd rather want to start with the labeling and then "discover" the angle-thing. That's why I said "I'd say the angle dependency is merely inherited."

comment Is space unending?
@Raskolnikov: I think not compact fits better than unbounded in the second sentece. The first sentence is a good example due to Heine–Borel, but in a metric space, the concept "infinite" is pretty much given by the property of unboundness, isn't it?

comment What does spin 0 mean exactly?
Hi Clara. You can edit the question to include the comment and then delete the comment (if not, you'll be able later). The tags are also slightly off. Also notice that for a quantitative understanding, explaining Spin in a purely mathematical context is probably conceptually easier first. You mention the term "particle" and thereby introduce potential spatial dependencies and then the term "spherical symmetry" gets a little more confusing. Keywords: The spins label the irreducible representations of the rotation group. I'd say the angle dependency is merely inherited. (don't know if helpful)

comment In what subfields and how far can the naive limit $c\rightarrow\infty$ of special relativity be carried?
@RonMaimon: Yes, I guess I "rejected" it by saing if you have that time derivative of the E-field term, then you're not in electrostatics (your Laplace equation), but in a theory with propagating waves and this is not a model of classical non-relativistic physics. I basically accepted is as a phenomenon which isn't even in the Newtonian physics and so it doesn't have to be taken into accound. The $\hbar$ problem is more serious in the sense that while you don't need waves, you need momentum in all classical models.

comment In what subfields and how far can the naive limit $c\rightarrow\infty$ of special relativity be carried?
@DJBunk: I don't know any counterexmaples where there is a relativistic theory and classical considerations and something bad happens. But I could imagine such cases. E.g. when $c$ stands in $\tfrac{v}{c}$ and you don't really want to kill the velocity or if there is a term multiplied by $\tfrac{1}{c^2}$ in the Maxwell equations and when you just take the limit then the term vanishes together with some function whose existence you need if you model it non-relativistically. Electric forces are used in classical considerationas after all. Maybe these are always be saved by $c\tfrac{1}{c}=1$ etc.
