Making some scientific discoveries overdue is a way to indirectly criticize some scholastic in science and philosophy. The meaning of scholastic is mainly the existence of comments. To do so, it helps to read René Descartes. What makes my research (of Adib Ben Jebara) valuable is that I am onthe right path while other people are on a wrong path and do not admit that they may be on a wrong path. One is on a wrong path when one has no hope of solving old problems.

Key words:Philosophy of science, philosophy of physics, Descartes, Adib Ben Jebara

REMARKS ABOUT CHANGES IN PHYSICS

1. Mechanics theory has a tendency to progress by introducing more mathematics which may receive industrial applications after some dozens of years.

2. Making some scientific discoveries overdue is a way to criticize indirectly some scholastic in science and philosophy. The meaning of scholastic is mainly the existence of comments. To do so, it helps to read René Descartes.

3. Anti-intellectualism, bureaucratic behavior and extreme specialization prevent shortcuts and being not result oriented. Some subjects deserve investigation more than others. One’s philosophy provides the choices. As an example of a theory which people are reluctant to accept from me: the space of the universe is infinite but the quantity of matter is finite. From a mathematical model, we learn that space is infinite and discontinuous and that the universe comes from a previous universe.

4. From what is true in quantum cosmology, we can deduce things in quantum mechanics. It does not matter so much if fundamental indeterminism exists because it will be reduced whenever physics progresses. Heisenberg uncertainty principle can be bypassed.

5. People are so much tied up to their bodies that they cannot see with the eye of the mind, as if Descartes and Galileo did not exist.

6. Infinite numbers which are Dedekind cardinals cannot be measured, not only what is measurable exists in physics, the school of Copenhagen is wrong. What is not measurable can be not speculation if it is from mathematics. The idea that only what is measured exists is restricting research.

7. The research team leader does not seek to have the knowledge of the members of his team. The synthesis is not done. Synthesis needs one (only) brain to be done.

8. We should go to a more contemplative science where we have more awareness of the meaning of the principles adopted. A lot of variants to a theory are less interesting than a new theory.

9. As time is not totally ordered, there are less causality relations at the level of elementary particles than at our level.

10. We invest too much in experimentation and not enough in new theories, overcompensating for the error of the middle ages in Europe. Philosophers of nowadays act according to fashions which have no future (they act according to a gregarious instinct).

11. Epistemology is beating around the bush, philosophy of science can be more to the point.

12. What makes my research (of Adib Ben Jebara) valuable is that I am on the right path while other people are on a wrong
