My question is whether we have any justification or proof that taking into account higher order derivatives do not lead us to deeper levels of understanding mechanics (or may be some other areas of physics whose mathematical description ist based on the 1st and the 2nd derivatives) in general case, at least in principle (it is possible of course to invent a special case where they do play some rôle, but I am not interested here in inventing such cases)?
