Here are some quotes from Albert Einstein. He saw the need for progress and so should we.
From the link provided before... yet again, "The Evolution of Physics"
"There would be no place, in our new physics, for both field and matter, field being the only reality. This new view is suggested by the great
achievements of field physics by our success in expressing the laws in electricity, magnetism, gravitation in the structure laws, and finally be the
equivalence of mass and energy.
Our ultimate problem would be to modify our fields laws in such a way they would not break down for regions in which energy is enormously
But we have not so far succeeded in fulfilling this programme convincingly and consistently. The decision, as to whether it is possible to carry it
out depends on the future. At present we must still assume in all our actual theoretical constructions: field and matter. "
"The theory of relativity arises from the field problems"
"The theory of relativity stress the importance of the field concept in physics. But we have not yet succeeded in formulating a pure field physics.
"One of the most fundamental questions raised by recent advance in science is how to reconcile the two contradictory views of matter and wave. It is
one of those fundamental difficulties, which once formulated, must lead, in the long run, to scientific progress. Physics has tried to solve this
problem. The future must decide whether the solution suggested by modern physics is enduring or temporary.
"Science is not and never will be a closed book. Every important advance brings new questions. Every development reveals, in the long run brings, new
and deeper difficulties."
"The important invention of the electromagnetic field appears. A courageous scientific imagination was needed to realize fully that not the behavior
of bodies, but the behavior of something between them, that is, the field, may be essential for ordering and understanding events."
