    What are the "basic principles"?

    Someone mentioned this to me earlier while we were talking about fields, I'm not sure if he meant a specific set of equations or methods, or if he was talking about something which you deduce after a certain amount of learning. What do you think he was talking about?

    Re: What are the "basic principles"?

    For me it is impossible know what your friend was talking about. All areas of science have "basic principles" that describe their fundamental mechanism of operation.

    There are electrostatic fields, gravitational fields, acoustic fields, strawberry fields, and more. So, if you are asking about fields can you please be more specific?
