T-shirt meaning?

Hi, I saw this t-shirt on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IWTWQD...ter_B00IWTWQKI but I don't understand what it means. It seems to be physics but I figure that is pretty much just applied math so you guys can help me out? A lot of these t-shirts I've seen are funny but this one went straight over my head.

I'm not saying that I have the final word, but I don't recognize any of it. The equations look like random non-sense. which is, of course, what the shirt is all about anyway.

Thanks for the reply. Perhaps the joke is that people assume there is meaning, something to understand, when in fact there is none? A possibility but I shall leave the thread open in case we're wrong.

Looks like nonsense to me. The path integrals aren't sensible as far as I can tell.
Thanks from topsquark

Thank-you for the reply. Both your response and the one before you have made me feel a little less stupid for not getting it but then I am not very mathematical (although I am trying). All I really knew is that it had something to do with calculus given the dt and ds, that is my level of knowledge (or lack thereof).

This reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon.
Warning: intellectual joke follows.


Two men are watching a classic and ancient Japanese drama.

One says to the other, "What part of noh don't you understand?"
