Starfaker, this is something you can understand. Laws of physics come
from the fantasies of men and women. They make them up. Well, not
exactly correct, they make up "theories" which is their fantasies as to
how reality "works". In science these theories are then compared against
reality to see how well they describe it. And as mentioned here, the
ability of a theory to correctly predict things that have not yet been
measured is considered important. So in other words starfaker, theories
are human bullshit just like all your fantasies.
So does that mean that a "creative" person like you can do science?
Well, you certainly can invent theories. Lots of people here do that.
But the part about checking with reality is more difficult. This means
you must have some idea of what people have measured reality to mean.
And here's where you fail.
But saying that, some people did not fail, so where do the "laws" of
physics come from? Well, "laws" of physics (or science) are theories
that have been tested so much and no exceptions to them found that they
are called "laws" meaning that they are assumed to always be true. But
they are really still just theories. For example Newton's laws have been
extensively tested for centuries and verified in millions of situations.
So people called them "laws". However, as it turns out careful
measurements show that Newton's theories are wrong! At certain speeds
they no longer hold showing they are just theories. But then we've
called them "laws" for so long that we still call them "Newton's laws"
just for historical reasons while everybody knows that they really
aren't always correct.
In engineering there are many theories that are more or less correct
over a limited range like say "Ohm's law" but they are not real laws.
and the correct name for such is "rules". In truth Ohm's law (again
called that for historical reasons) is really just Ohm's rule.
