Not sure if this is the right place to post this question but still:- I always asked "why" questions in physics but lately my proffesor told me to stop asking such questions( because sometimes i went too deep). HE says that all physics does is to give a mathematical description to natural phenomena This troubles me - i always thought asking why things happen is a good thing. Shouldnt i ask the "why" questions. Also lately i have many "why" questions that are difficult to answer. But they irritate me - until i get the answer i feel restless. How to deal with it?
