The Microcosm of the Macrocosm

The laws of physics govern the various behaviors exhibited by colliding objects. When objects collide, they do so according to these rules of physics. As such, the crumpling of the component parts can be expressed in terms of a mathematical equation. It is likely that a mechanic working in an auto body repair Salt Lake City does not have a solid grasp of the laws of physics and the mathematical equations which govern and describe the damage endured by the car being repaired. This, however, is of no importance because knowledge of the laws of physics and its mathematical equations is not required to perform the work to repair the impacts of these laws.


Despite this fact, it is interesting to consider the fact that although a mechanic working in an auto body Salt Lake City shop need not be in possession of specific knowledge regarding the laws of physics, he or she is still responding to them. In a sense the two work in concert and together create a larger organism which can be said to possess the knowledge of the laws of physics and perform the work to repair the impact that the laws of physics had upon the objects which collided into each other.
From a larger perspective all living beings and moving objects form a living, functioning organism. From this perspective it does not matter that one part of the organism does not know the function of another part of the organism. In a similar way a skin cell in a human body is probably not aware of the math test that the human being is taking. Nevertheless, the organism that is the human body functions despite the fact that its component parts do not have full knowledge about the function of all the other component parts.
