Applied Physics

The really smug feeling that you get from being a Physicist arises out of the confidence that you can dismiss every other field of study in this universe as just "Applied Physics".

There's only one field of study that trumps Physics

- Philosophy (which by-definition is META-Physics)

Its a pleasant surprise to see the Last Humanist blog after 2 years! :)

As a mathematician, I must defend math too! Physics surely is, and will remain a study that stands out, but if not for mathematics...physics wouldn't be as beautiful and elegant as it is. Mathematicians are known to perform magic with strikingly simple ideas! :)
