This reification of "laws" of nature, i.e., describing the physical world as if it were obeying statutes
, is bizzare. It should be obvious that natural "laws" (theoretical nomothetic generalizations) do little more than describe how the physical world "behaves." It also seems that somewhere in the vast universe, there may be behavioral variations far different from ours. Moreover, as we've stressed before, exotic sentient creatures may enjoy (or suffer)--as expressions of their physical makeup--cognitive ways of being far different from ours.
That's my anti-dementia work out for today.
