The present phase of stagnation in the foundations of physics is not normal
FINALLY – some bold physicists today are beginning to complain about their own field and the incompetent ignorance of and within it. This is truly new stuff definitely to be paid attention to by US ALL!
Nothing is moving in the foundations of physics. One experiment after the other is returning null results: No new particles, no new dimensions, no new symmetries. Sure, there are some anomalies in the data here and there, and maybe one of them will turn out to be real news. But experimentalists are just poking in the dark. They have no clue where new physics may be to find. And their colleagues in theory development are of no help.
