Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But for physics it seems to be more useful to ask what things do and how they behave than what they are.
Maybe this is a hint that ontology is just a load of humanure.

Not if it gets you asking interesting questions.

There's a difference between unknown and unknowable. It's unscientific to assume that ontology is unknowable unless that can be proved rigorously.

Until that happens, we're left with unknown - and some interesting open questions.
