Science is only collection of theories, and statements derive in
those theories, and intepretation rules, and confirmation modus
operandi. Only layman and engineers have to hope that their theories
fits enough a reality.

The theories and the reasoning can be presented informally or
formally. Rigor has nothing to do with formalization, but a lot to do
with clarity. It is also better that the theory/assumption are shared
by many, because ... it is more fun.

How would you define what a physical law is?

The reason I am asking is that recently I have read The Elegant Universe by Brian Green about the superstring theory. For some reasons physicists insist that they can find Equation of Everything.

Best wishes,
