Physical laws .... are they material?!! There was an old question about physical laws , where do they come from? as they are considered separated from the material of the universe. Of course I know that they are produced by the human brain or human consciousness (which is material in turn) , but this leads to another problem that the human brain had not made them (physical laws) from nothing. This means that they exist "out of the human conscious" , if we can say , and not just fully related to it. They are a common thing between the universe and the human brain. There is another thing , physical laws , which are produced by the human brain , control the work of human brain, or we may say that although they are a product of human brain , we can consider a producer of it , and maybe they are the same not different two things. Ok ,,, I think all of this was debated and discussed , but I want to ask if we can consider them material and not separated from the substance of the world. I know that in the past philosophers made difference between material and motion. This was based on the "absolute position" ( I don't know how to express it) or the absolute place or the Newtonian physics , or non-relativistic physics ,, they needed the concept of separating motion from material to prove the existence of the "first mover" in theological literature. No matter the existence of the first mover , the argument is physically invalid now, because It had been based on the idea of that the motion is , to some extent , not physical as the substance. Now we know that motion is a type of energy (Kinetic Energy) , and energy and mass can be equalized by Einstein's equation E=mc^2 , and each of them may turn or be turned to the other. I think no need to attribute the physical laws to metaphysics , because they are mainly nothing more than equations which tell us finally that a=a. Physical laws are a complicated form of the self-evident axiom that a thing is it self or a=a , and this does not need to suppose a non-physical interpretation , because this reality accompanied by the existence of material and they are the same thing. Waiting for your opinions.
