I've been hanging around physics forums since the early days of Dr. Neutrino, where i used to answer questions for students and play around in heated debates reagrding various aspects of quantum physics and GR. As years went by, and my reading got more and more sophisticated, I started realizing how little i actually understood about the nature of reality. These days, I read the questions and answers on this forum, and just shake my head. the questions have gotten more and more complex, and often are inquiring about fundamental nature of particle interaction, the nature of fields and how they operate, etc. the answers most often display the abundant mathematical expertise of many contributors, but hardly ever offer any insight into fundamental reality, mostly because no one actually has any understanding of fundamental reality, and sadly, this is generally not acknowledged in any real way by the respondents. Considering my own inability to answer even the simplest question, such as "how does a magnet work?", I have come to humbly accept that I, in essence, know nothing about the nature of reality. I have no idea what a photon is, no idea what a field is or how it interacts with particles within its influence, no idea what gravity is, no idea how particles actually interact, no idea what a "point particle" actually implies or how it can exist or interact, etc etc. I have said a few of these things before, only to get heated responses pointing at the textbook definition of a field, or intricate equations indicating the math beind particle interaction, etc, as if these words or equations imply fundamental understanding. They do not.
