The Laws of Physics :
The Significance of Physics
Physics is the underlying "parent" of the other sciences. Those sciences; for example: chemistry, optics, thermodynamics, mechanics, biology, electricity, and so forth; developed out of detailed observation of natural behavior. The development of a particular science progressed from detailed data collection through analysis and hypotheses to a body of descriptions of behavior abstracted from that data. We call those descriptions "physical laws". They are empirical laws, that is conclusions based on observed behavior.
While the original development of the sciences was from their specifics toward the general, now that the body of developed specifics and resulting physical laws exists, it is more logical to comprehend that body of knowledge in terms of its hierarchical structure by starting at the common central data, the presentation being from the general to specifics.
All of physics [and, therefore all of science] is fundamentally reducible to:
· Particles, the
basic material or matter of the universe,
Various manifestations, combinations and interactions among these produce
all of the world and universe that we experience:
The Fundamental Physical Laws are:
All of these Fundamental Physical Laws, and the further developments from them in the various sciences inclusive within physics, are derived and proven in The Origin and Its Meaning from the characteristics of that origin, derived and proven in the same sense and with the same rigour as proofs in Euclidean Geometry [although deriving and proving the Laws of Physics is much more complex than geometry], as outlined in the following extract from the Table of Contents.
11 - Electric Field and Charge
Thus, we can know that the origin of the universe presented in
The Origin and Its Meaning
is correct because
while that origin is metaphysical, that is, not itself within physics,
it nevertheless leads directly and precisely to the known physics of today's universe,
which an invalid origin could not do.
