Laws Of The Universe: What is a Law of Life?

Lady Justice
If you've ever puzzled over things in life, you may have come to the conclusion that some things just 'seem' to be following a law.

In physics, and science in general, 'laws' have been formulated this and that. For example, the laws of thermodynamics or the law of gravity.

But what is a Law?

The French scientist Antoine Lavoisier formulated a methodology that is part of scientific method today. First, he said, someone develops a 'hypothesis'. This is basically an educated guess about something and it needs to be proved to be correct to move on to the next phase.

When a hypothesis is proved correct, it becomes a theory. What this really means is that there is enough evidence to make the hypothesis 'self evident' and that there is a substantial amount of it verified by different scientists to be commonly accepted as 'true.' However it is not universally accepted as true.

Finally, a theory becomes a 'law,' which means that not only is it proven correct, but there is no doubt of it amongst all scientists and it accepted as universally true. That's why we can talk about the 'law' of gravity, because no one questions it's truth, but we talk about Einstein's 'Theory' of Relativity because a lot of it is still not held as universally true.

When things become murky, is when no one can agree on what is true and what is not true.

In this series, we will discuss 11 'Laws of the Universe' that are commonly promoted by people in the personal development space, but which may or may not actually be 'laws.'

These 11 laws are summarized below.

  1. The Law of Thinking
  2. The Law of Infinite Supply
  3. The Law of Attraction
  4. The Law of Receiving
  5. The Law of Increase
  6. The Law of Compensation
  7. The Law of Non-Resistance
  8. The Law of Forgiveness
  9. The Law of Sacrifice
  10. The Law of Obedience
  11. The Law of Success
