Mainstream physics rests on several battle-tested laws of nature:
1) The local gauge principle from Einstein's principle of locality. All the boson force fields are induced by restricting the speed of light signals to a finite value.
2) Heisenberg's uncertainty principle.
3) Emergence of New Order, i.e. P.W. Anderson's "More is different", AKA Higgs-Goldstone mechanism, spontaneous breakdown of ground state symmetry in complex systems, ODLRO (Off-Diagonal-Long-Range-Order) in low lying quantum correlation functions (reduced density matrices - Lars Onsager and Oliver Penrose 1950's) giving the "Mexican Hat Potential" for the coherent condensate ground state local order parameters (GIANT quantum wave functions).
