Physics is the science that describes the universe, not the universe itself. There could be math without physics if no one ever cared about the universe.

Also, there are those who argue that all of the mathematical objects we know and describe exist even without an universe and no one to think of them. I am one of them.

then we should do the same for physics

take everybody who's below the average right now and just remove them so it increases in a fair way

It's not about removing below average people. It's about removing people who are merely using math as a tool for other fields and thus are less likely to have a genuine interest in it. It is not unreasonable to look at the data within context.

Honestly, the average mathematician is likely more intelligent than the average physicist if only because of all the boring, unstimulating research they do. Your average mathematician is basically just solving puzzles all day. It isn't a coincidence that the physicist most comparable to mathematicians, the theoretical physicist, is the most intelligent.

>Honestly, the average mathematician is likely more intelligent than the average physicist

see your elitism is the reason why you aren't being objective

and that's besides the point

a major is a major

it attracts the people who want to take it for whatever reason they want

you can't just pick what reason they took it and take only those people

if i was to do the same for physics i would say take only theoretical physicists and remove everybody else
