What is physics?
the how and the why

I like being asked questions about Wolfram Physics.

When I try to answer them, though, I often find myself trapped in an infinite regress.

To address a question about Wolfram Physics, I might first need to address another, more fundamental question, about physics.

And to address that question, I might first need to address another, more fundamental question, than might be more philosophy than physics.

Today, I’m going to go to one of those deep questions that need to be asked, if not answered, before I can begin to address many of the questions I’ve been asked about Wolfram Physics.

What is physics?

I hope you enjoy this excursion into the philosophy of physics. Next time, I’ll be returning to the question of what our universe looks like, so that we can know which of the rules of Wolfram Physics might give rise to our reality.
