Even the best minds in physics, can't explain gravity, they only know the very basics, of it's concepts as an attracting force.

Schopenhauer had an interesting idea. He thought that gravity and the other forces of nature like magnetism were the will operating from inanimate matter - the same will that finds its highest manifestation in animals and humans.

the beinging? Schopenhauer was a kantian idealist... he thought we had some knowledge of the noumenal world, indirectly as the will. Our physical world is just the representation of the noumenal world. I wouldn't be able to speculate on how that would all work with darwinian evolution if thats what you're getting at...

Your link didn't work... Read up on kantian idealism Transcendental idealism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The noumena are the 'things-in-themselves'.

I didn't make the link

yes I know noumena are " things-in-themselves " , the thing is though , if this true , then , we have not all this " intuition "

I didn't say anything about any special intuition. Schopenhauer said that we had indirect knowledge - the 'will'.
