Base differences between formal (conceptual) and practical
(empiric) roles, I believe, are equally well-known to careful
readers in physics. For example, *theoretical* physics uses
‘E’ as a generic expression of energy, with no reference to
any of the 16 acdepted forms of energy, as in E = mc^2 . . .
‘F’ for a generic expression of force with no reference to any
of the four fundamental forces as in F = ma.

As such, these conceptual views are wholly removed from
classic *empiric* concepts. It is due to this imprecision in
any theoretical view that things must be *empirically*
verified – which then makes it a ‘science’. Yes, I can understand
why you would wish to pass on commenting further on physics.

That said, the same applies to vague formal references to
*everything* everywhere having a statistical (entropic) nature.
I am not sure this comment has much ‘meaning’ (pun wholly
intended) – as Shannon and Weaver plainly saw.
