Natural Laws I 426
Law / Natural Law / Barrow: in practice, they are differential equations. They are solved when an expression is found that tells us which states are possible in the future for a given initial state and when and where they arise - 1 algorithmic structure - 2 Initial conditions - 3 Constants of nature - the three components separate knowledge of non-knowledge - we can change the shape of the law (first component) even derive accurate if we do not know the initial conditions.
