Year: 2004 Pages: 13
Keywords: Reality, Ways of knowing, Laws, Properties, Ring model
Knowledge of nature has been acquired through common experiences and controlled laboratory experiments. When the order of physical encounters becomes evident, the expected outcomes of physical events and processes are formulated into general concepts, axioms, and laws of nature to provide understanding of the nature of things in the universe. Observations of the properties of physical entities divide simply into two groups: general concepts called "laws" and specific features of entities called "properties." Part 1 of this report deals with the laws?leaving the properties for a later report. In Part 1, the laws of nature are listed, referenced, and explained in relation to the Ring Model and the Standard Model of Elementary Particles.
