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?
Empirically: physical laws are the laws which can relate what I can
observe and share with others.
Assuming digital mechanism, after the UDA reasoning, the physical
laws are no more primitive laws, inferable from observation, but they
emerge from the coupling consciousness/reality itself emerging from
the additive/multiplicative structure of numbers. The laws of physics
are no more fundamental. The emergence is enough constrained as to
make the mechanist assumption testable. If we are in a 'matrix', we
can verify it. (mechanism entails we are in a matrix, actually in an
infinities of matrix, existing platonistically in the structure of
numbers+addition+multiplication. Note that this makes the ultimate
physical laws much more solid: such laws are shown to have a reason.
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.
Physicists have a tradition of putting mind and consciousness under
the rug, and they usually confuse everything with everything-physical.
This has been a fertile methodological simplification, but it breaks
in front of the 'hard consciousness problem', or the mind-body problem.
