It is?  I was under the impression that we'd been thinking about these 
things since Newton.  Besides, If you look at the history of Math and 
Logic (especially in the 20th century), continuous systems are as 
artificial as any other math construct.  A model's success in mirroring 
the "real" world doesn't change the fact that it is still a model, and 
not the world.

your grandmother." — Albert Einstein.
