I do not think it means what you think it means.
Physics can often seem inconceivable. It’s a field of strange concepts and special terms. Language often fails to capture what’s really going on within the math and theories. And to make things even more complicated, physics has repurposed a number of familiar English words.
Much like Americans in England, folks from beyond the realm of physics may enter to find themselves in a dream within a dream, surrounded by a sea of words that sound familiar but are still somehow completely foreign.
Not to worry! Symmetry is here to help guide you with this list of words that acquire a new meaning when spoken by physicists.
