Yes you do. Semiconductors operate on quantum mechanical principles. They are not magical oriental buttons that operate because some third world shaman blessed them to. They were specifically designed and manufactured with their operating principles based on the interactions of the matter involved and the energy band gaps that exist on (gasp) the quantum level. You need these band gaps to be specifically tuned to emit specific wavelengths of light.
You cannot build an LED of a specific wavelength without knowing this.

Additionally, you cannot explain the observations of light bending in the presence of massive objects such as the sun without using general relativity.

He said "LED of a specific wavelength" you brainlet. You need a predictive model in order to do that effectively. Otherwise, you'd be mashing things together blindly and wasting a lot of resources. You need to know orbital mechanics to plot a mission to Mars. You need to know thermodynamics in order to optimize an engine. Likewise, you need to know quantum mechanics in order to derive, from scratch, the correct specifications for microchip components.

"yeah dude, plug it into the statistics program and see if its close enough"

the analytic-synthetic distinction is king, no matter how much logic you use, no matter how much work you've put into making a totally consistent theory, it means fucking NOTHING. It only matters if it agrees with reality in physics, and reality really likes hiding shit like neutrinos for thousands of years, you can't know anything for sure in physics.

>> No.10181135

Unfortunately reality seems to behave in an unintuitive manner and the ability to come up with something as sufficiently axiomatic as math to describe everything is probably beyond any man or machine. Luckily, physicists do not aim to perfectly describe why things happen in reality, they aim to explain the behavior of real stuff in the real world consistenly. Go look at when Feynman is asked "why" about stuff. It's not our problem. Leave the "why" to the philosophers, lol. They've done a whole lot in the last 2000 years. And before you call it brainlet, or useless, ask yourself how we could come up with these great inventions like rockets, sattelites, modern communication systems, etc. without the physics to describe it. Go ask yourself what your contribution is to your 80 years in history.

Allow me to interject. What you're referring to as "physicists" are, in fact, "experimentalists" or as I've recently taken to calling them, "false physicists". Experimentalists are not physicists unto themselves, but rather another plebian component of the fully functioning system of physics as made possible by theorists, the patronage of old rich jews, and experimentalists' cheap labor, components comprising a full area of study in modern science.

Many people rely on bastardized versions of theorists' work without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, physics is perceived as a endless series of experiments, and many of its users are not aware that it is built up on a rigorous framework, developed by brave theorists.

There really are experimentalists, and to some degree they matter despite being replaceable, but they are just one small part of physics as a whole. Experimentalists are like slaves: they work away their entire lives crunching numbers and verifying the theorists' work. Experimentalists are an essential part of physics, but useless by themselves; they could hardly tie their shoes without help from theorists. Experimentalists can sometimes be found working alongside theorists: the whole can be called "a laboratory", or "a master and his attendants". What many people imagine when they hear "physicist" is unfortunately just a lowly experimentalist.

>> No.10181262

Physics is just a finite set of mathematical rules (that are not even deterministic) that describe a finite universe (and we've not even fully described it yet).
Mathematics is provably infinite (Godel) and as such, no finite universe can be fundamental. This is proven.
This universe is a finite subset of the infinite set of mathematics.
Physics isn't even a priori like math is, so again it makes absolutely no sense to say that an a posteriori finite subcategory of an a priori infinite supercategory is ">" (greather-than) it's super-category.
The statement "physics > math" is literally nonsense.

>> No.10181263

the reason i didnt focus on theoretical physicists, is because they have no way to know if they're right without the experimentalists. Our theories were perfect, up until we realized that the experiments didn't agree. Again, the analytic-synthetic distinction shuts that down. You can't sit in an armchair, think really hard and figure out what the universe likes to do. So just like you were saying as to how the experimentalists are useless on their own, so are the theorists.

thats why i do math, dont need people to build an lhc to check that 2+2 = 5. just check the proof

I have a B.Sc in physics and currently writing a master's thesis in theoretical material science, I originally wanted to get into the analytical nonsense you describe in your post, but honestly I kinda agree that most forefront of theoretical analytical physics is pretty much forward thinking and really hard or next to impossible to experimentally validate with our current level of technology, I'm honestly hating physics more and more and I'm thinking of getting a master's in applied math after I finish my current one.

Math is honestly much more coherent and defined than most other sciences, which makes it that much more reliable and superior, math is immutable, its scope is usually defined clearly and explicitly in each field or branch, no need for experimentation or validation, no need for shitty half assed interpretations and other nonsense.

Math is by far the comfiest and best part of STEM.

Took me a long time to realize this sadly and it haunts me that I wasted so much on my life on literal shit.

No offense but you are wrong.
