I am a nuclear physicist, with high regard for "educated intuition" in physics.
I believe it is possible to discover "beauty" in Physics as a distillation of the beauty of comprehending Nature. I think there is an underlying logic to Nature, and that it reveals itself through the simplicity and cross similarity behind all phenomena.
To my impression, its not a coincidence that the most powerful theories rest under reduced assumptions, while explaining more phenomena than their predecessors.
I find in physics passion, comfort, joy; I regard it as a most refined form of art.
