The physical world view  between reality and surrealism
When   I   started   studying   astrophysics   after   the   political   change   in   East   Germany,   I   initially   had   the   hurdle   of   the   English language   that   is   typical   for   East   German   scientists.   We   were   trained   in   Russian,   but   we   didn't   see   any   need   for   the   English language. To   learn   this   language   autodidactically,   I   used   the   children's   books   by   J.K.   Rowling   on   the   magician   Harry   Potter.   I   found these   books   very   suitable   for   my   project.   The   vocabulary   was   somewhat   manageable   at   the   beginning   and   grew   as   the exciting   story   continued.   The   plot   developed   in   such   a   way   that   I   read   every   book   to   the   end   and   incidentally   the vocabulary was memorized. So I could completely do without the annoying vocabulary learning. J.   K.   Rowling's   invented   in   their   famous   children's   book   series   about   the   Magican’s   pupil   Harry   Potter,   the   platform   nine three-quarters   at   the   King’s   Cross   Railway   Station   in   London. You   just   have   to   walk   courageously   on   platform   nine   against the wall, to get from the real world into the fictional world of magicians. In   the   world   of   science   would   also   be   desirable   a   clean   separation   through   a   wall,   for   example,   between   physics   and metaphysics.   Unfortunately,   the   walls   have   been   torn   down   in   the   last   century   and   so   the   boundaries   are   difficult   to   detect even.   It   is   not   the   aim   of   closing   the   boundaries,   but   they   have   to   be   put   back   to   mind   in   order   to   distinguish   between fiction and reality. Nothing is worse than losing the orientation. She   also   succeeded   in   portraying   the   Hypris   of   black   magicians   vis-à-vis   ordinary   people,   the   Muggles.   The   very   word Muggle  contains the whole attitude of this guild. Leonard   Susskind   also   describes   this   hubris   in   his   book   The   Black   Hole   War .   The   parallels   between   these   sectren-like structures   that   are   described   are   so   obvious   that   I   was   prompted   to   adopt   the   Muggle   term,   especially   since   an   entire generation   internalized   the   adventures   of   Harry   Potter,   whose   parents   were   killed   by   a   black   magician   Has.   Even   today,   it   is harmful to a physicist's career not to submit to their peer group discipline. It   is   not   my   concern   to   close   the   boundaries   between   the   real   and   the   fictional,   but   they   need   to   be   brought   back   into consciousness,   since   mathematics   as   a   humanities   can   cross   these   boundaries,   which   physics   as   a   natural   science   must respect   if   it   wants   to   depict   reality.   Today   even   trained   physicists   find   it   difficult   to   distinguish   between   fantasy   and   reality. However, nothing is worse than losing your bearings. We   want   to   get   help   from   natural   philosophy.   The   term   metaphysics,   which   means   as   much   as   behind   physics,   comes   from Aristotle   and   refers   to   the   order   of   his   treatise   and   means   the   things   of   the   mind   and   what   happens   to   it.   To   put   it   in   a nutshell,   one   can   say   that   metaphysics   is   everything   that   arises   from   human   imagination,   without   having   found   a counterpart   in   reality.   This   also   includes   non-falsifiable   scientific   theories   such   as   the   standard   models   of   cosmology   and particle    physics.    These    theories    cannot    be    refuted    because    they    are    outside    the    world    of    experience    and    are    pure speculation.

Anyone   who is   so   arrogant   about   trying   to   fathom   God's   will,   as   St.   Hawking   put   it   in   his   book   A   Brief   History   of   Time ,   cannot   hold   a technical   discussion   with   people   without   magical   blood,   such   as   engineers,   although   these   high   research   goals   are   financed from   tax   revenue   from   society   in   order   to   benefit   this   society   and   not   to   serve   private   reasons.      So    there   are   astrophysicists on   the   one   hand   and   engineers   on   the   other.   The   engineers   are   Muggles    in   this   game   because   they   do   a   solid   job   that   is controllable,   while   astrophysicists   are   currently   moving   away   from   verifiable   facts.   Since   the   beginning   of   the   space   flight era,    so    many    facts    have    been    gathered    that    the    mainstream    theses    of    astrophysicists    are    no    longer    tenable.    The Mugglebibliothek   has   set   itself   the   goal   of   gathering   facts   about   space   and   reinterpreting   them   on   the   basis   of   natural philosophy.
