@learningPURPOSE,
Purp that's a really good q. For the longest time I've been trying to introduce the Apodictical Existential Pantheist view of existence, where we're required to reason with a somewhat surreal slant

Problem, most of our thinking is a dualistic phenom centered around physical objects moving around in space as the result of a separate phenom willing it all into existence, called God

....whereas we see Her as It/Him/She, the Entire Shebang (forgive pun), nothing requiring a creation because it has All existed forever, in one form or another

....God help me....

@learningPURPOSE,
Oh Purp, another not quite physical: Nothing is entirely anything while everything is partly something else

Quantum mechanics is sort of the middleman.

@learningPURPOSE,
"physical science" is often used as a contrast to "social science."

Physical science deal with external, objective "things" and would include such scientific branches as physics, biology, chemistry, and the like.

Social science (which some claim are not actual "sciences") deals with things that are more subjective, and would include such things as psychology, economics, politics, etc.

That's true also. Sometimes a contrast is made between "physcial science" and "life science."

Quote:
However, the term "physical" creates an unintended, somewhat arbitrary distinction, since many branches of physical science also study biological phenomena (organic chemistry, for example).


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outline_of_physical_science

There is always some overlap, but that site can probably answer all of your questions. Perhaps the better distinction to be drawn is between "natural sciences" and "social sciences."

@layman,
physical science distinguishes its membership from the BIOLOGICAL sciences
Social sciences are a vocabulary looking for something to do.
