The Physicists’ Bill of Rights

We hold these postulates to be intuitively obvious, that all physicists are born equal, to a first approximation, and are endowed by their creator with certain discrete privileges, among them a mean rest life, n degrees of freedom, and the following rights which are invariant under all linear transformations

There’s actually a few of these “rights” that I think should earn a slap to anyone exercising them, but I’m just going to assume the author was thinking of string theorists and not worry too much.

Theoretical physics’ past 40 years tread on parts of the universe that were omitted. The standard model demanding SUSY, quantum gravitation, and dark matter are elegant, protracted, consensual wool gathering from bald sheep.

Theory predicts what it is told to predict by observation. To criticize is to volunteer,
