Is that true? Do the theorems apply to the physical world as they apply to the realm of mathematics?

A very good question, I would have asked similar. Especially it is a very actual debate because in theoretical physics we try to prove one theory with another theory mathematically. (M theory for S Matrix)

Hawking has a different opinion on this. But we are talking about Goedels theorem of incompleteness and I gave a hint of the second theorem of incompleteness of Geodel which explains, why we cannot prove Theory A with Theory B. The Axiomatic of both Theories will forbid it.

sure it is a question of believing systems in science. Are we Platon believer or are we Wittgenstein believer.
