nature's evolving habits

| No Comments

Excellent quote I nabbed at sylloge: The laws of nature are nature's evolving habits

the idea of a fixed and eternal law of nature is a carry-over from an archaic tradition of thought which is outmoded or superseded by the idea of the evolutionary universe. I'm suggesting that maybe the laws of nature themselves evolve; in fact, that maybe they're like habits, that there's a kind of memory in nature. I emphasise this evolutionary and habitual aspect of things as opposed to the idea that everything is governed by eternal, unchanging laws.
