I was wondering first of all if this was a personal observation of Feynman's, or if it was a known thing that I will find in the future while studying and will somehow be pointed out to me in some Physics course. Then I was wondering if you could understand qualitatively what you are talking about, i.e., how does one theory ensure that there cannot be another different and more precise theory for the phenomena it describes...Strange enough, it happens that the combination of relativity and quantum mechanics, in the present form of these theories, seems to prohibit one from finding an equation that is fundamentally different from the Poisson equation and that does not at the same time lead to some kind of contradiction. Not a simple disagreement with experience, but an internal contradiction.
