The Law of Physical States: An
entity, a person or an object, comprised of matter/energy (m/e) has at
any timepoint a physical state including its inertial state: an entity
will retain its physical state/inertial state until acted upon by a
force of some kind.
The Corollaries of the Law of Physical
1. A force is a form of matter/energy (m/e); a force has a source, a
force source, which is the entity or event who/which is the cause of
2. A force causes a push or a pull inre an entity; a force is either a
push-force or a pull-force; a push-force causes an entity to be
accelerated away from the push-force source and a pull-force causes an
entity to be accelerated towards the pull-force source.
3. Only a force can cause a change of the physical state including the
inertial state of an entity.
4. The observation of a change of physical state/inertial state implies
the change is an effect which is caused by a cause which is a force of
some kind, a form of m/e.
A physical state includes any and all observable and/or measurable
characteristics of a person or an object including size, shape, mass
(weight), color, m/e composition, oscillation (rate of ticking for
clocks), motion (inertial state: being at-rest or in-motion), location
in space (position), timepoint (time mark on a continuum of time),
duration (age, endurance), etc.
The Law of Physical States and The Corollaries of the Law of Physical
States are fundamental to physical
phenomena at all physical scalar levels, including the scalar level of
quantum mechanics, QM.
Causality is the event occurs
when objects and events
comprised of matter/energy as causes cause as effects (A) changes of
the physical states of pre-existing objects and events or (B) new
objects and events from pre-existing m/e.
Causality is the basis of determinism.
Determinism is a term used to
describe the fact that an effect is caused by a cause, that a cause
determines an effect.
Although scientists may not yet be able to observe the changes of the
inertial states of pre-existing atoms and subatomic particles, they are
able to observe the changes of inertial states of percentages of atoms
and subatomic particles in known quantities of atoms/subatomic
particles, then by Corollary 4 of the Law of Physical States this
is proof that a force of some kind has caused the observed change of
inertial states, and, thus, determinism is occurring at atomic and
subatomic scalar levels, including QM scalar levels.

As is well known, the fundamental law of the mechanics of
which is known as the law of inertia, can be stated thus: A
far from other bodies continues in a state of rest or of uniform motion
a straight line.

The fundamental law of physics is the law of inertia. "A
keeps the same state as long as there is no cause to change its state."
is, it remains at rest or continues the same kind of motion—that is,
with the same velocity in the same direction—until some cause changes
and such cause we call a 'force.' " [Quotes in the original, but not
This is really not merely a law of physics, but it is the fundamental
of logic. It is the law of cause and effect: "Any effect must have a
and without cause there can be no effect." This is axiomatic and is the
conception of all knowledge, because all knowledge consists in finding
cause of some effect or the effect of some cause, and therefore must
that every effect has some cause, and inversely. [Quotes in the
