The law of the universe, according to chemistry, is:
The first four laws of the universe, according to physics, are:
- 1st. Every body perseveres in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straight forward, except insofar as it is compelled to change its state by forces impressed.
- 2nd. A change in motion is proportional to the motive force impressed and takes place along the straight line in which that force is impressed.
- 3rd. To any action there is always an opposite and equal reaction; in other words, the actions of two bodies upon each other are always equal and always opposite in direction.
- 4th. All bodies attract toward each other by a force proportional to the product of their masses and inversely to square of their distance of separation.
The four universal laws of thermodynamics are:
- 0th. Two bodies in thermal equilibrium with a third body are also in equilibrium with each other.
- 1st. The energy of the universe is constant
- 2nd. The entropy of the universe tends to a maximum.
- 3rd. No finite sequence of cyclical processes processes can succeed in cooling a body to absolute zero.
The following are related quotes:
- “The mind is nothing but the result of an organic combination of physical powers. The universe is, as it were, a chemical, magnetical, electrical, etc., laboratory, in which, the material powers (also called vital powers) consummate their unceasing changes and transformations. Where one formation ceases [final state], another begins [initial state]. Even the corpse of man lives; but this is no longer human life, it is only the life of ‘anorganic’ nature [see: inorganic life], to which the human form, after its dissolution, returns, and out of which ‘organic’ nature reproduces itself. There is no thing dead in the world, and dying implies only a retransformation to the material of common life.”
