In the same way we could create "principles" for the other forces which would not make them not forces. Is it a misunderstanding of the meaning of a force or principle? Could someone clarify this for me.
But saying that a physical phenomena is caused by humanly invented algebra is to me not very satisfying explanation. Shouldn't it be more accurate to say that the algebra describes the phenomena, but that the cause is a (a combination of) certain physical axiom(s)?it holds purely algebraically w/o specifying a dynamics i.e. w/o specifying a Hamiltonian.
