Hello there, S.N.P. Gupta,
Thank you so very much for your high regard. Your feedback is very kind and your compliments are greatly appreciated. I'm sorry that my replying comments are coming relatively delayed. Perhaps there is a time difference between where you are and where I am. I have recently re-uploaded my essay (newly edited); do you mind rating that one please? I am trying to get my old one taken off of the website. To begin:
A) "...A theory in pure Mathematics and a theory in Physics have different requirements and outcomes. Apure Mathematical theory may not have any physical basis and out-comes also may not have any physical significances..." I think that our essays are somewhat similar.
B) I agree with A.1. "...With a predetermined idea that the theory should behave in some manner, religious feelings etc, must be avoided while forming a new theory. As far as possible, the new theory should be based on scientific findings and experimental results..."
C) Perhaps I am misunderstanding A.2. "...It is a common thing that there is some fear about teachers, professors and superior bosses..."
D) A.3. I think that this is a great point, I agree and think that it's very unfortunate. ("...Such boundaries do exist and are being imposed by institutions, teachers and professors. Funding and allocation of seats and vacancies are inside these boundaries. It is well known generally that the Professors don't accept students who work outside these boundaries or provide funding. Many times, they don't accept that there is some science beyond these boundaries...")
E) I also agree with A.4.
F) I must disagree with the following "...A.5. Don't make the mathematics too complex with thousands of multiple possible solutions...). Depending on the proposed theory (of quantum gravity in particular) the mathematics required is highly complex. M-theory (for instance) requires the extra spatial dimensions and an implication that is highly complex is where one would see the Holographic Principle emerge. "...All your time will be wasted which was spent for developing such system of mathematics to describe a physical system..." For instance such proposals include the proposition that posited extra dimensions exist and exist at the Plank scale and are tightly curled up. Imaginary (and complex) numbers have vast implications in the [hard] sciences.
G) I absolutely agree with B.1. Personally, I think that selfish financial motives are the primary obstacles to everything from world peace to a unification of gravity with the rest of physics.
H) You made a wonderful point in B.7. This [philosophy of mind] is my primary area of concentration within philosophy.
I) Perhaps I'm misunderstanding C.1. but are you listing the criteria for a newly revised requirements that would allow for a new cosmological paradigm?
J) In C.2. "...Concept should come out from the depth of truth..." This was unclear, as was a definition for "perfection".
K) I don't know the nature of time "...Time is linear as observed on earth, moving forward only..."
Additionally, on "...I think I can add few words........ the ultimate of the quest in philosophy is very difficult to understand. Describing in words is very difficult........ what do you say?" Language most certainly is a tool (it may or may not be unique to human beings). In general, I think articulating one's thoughts is always challenging. I also do not think that English is the most sufficient language to convey oneself.
Finally, one completely separate conversation topic is the matter of allowing individuals who might be capable of studying such discourse as the foundations of mathematics (and the philosophy of maths, or "metamathematics"). Scholars who study rigorous matters tend to be underfunded and making a living (in said cases) is (usually) a nuisance as this hinders academics from making contributions and fully investing their time in solving the universe's most challenging questions.
Indeed, I will rate your essay highly. Thanks again,
