For me this is incredibly insightful. I often consider that it is our defining of reality that creates it. While we have a need for boundaries and definition of such we also have a need of overstepping those boundaries without totally destroying the paradigms we have used to create them. We need to stay grounded on planet earth so we create gravity. But then we need to escape this restriction so we create ways of flying be it using lift or making things lighter than the atmosphere or perhaps anti gravity devices or teleportation mechanisms. No matter what physical laws we have made to restrain us we will find a way of circumventing those laws when it becomes necessary. Like the discovery of atomic power allowing us to use energy more efficiently. But what if we find an even more efficient manner of directly using energy than fusion or fission. Directly accessing the sub atomic forces that hold together time and space?

In the beginning there was Aristotle,
And objects at rest tended to remain at rest,
And objects in motion tended to come to rest,
And soon everything was at rest,
And God saw that it was boring.

Then God created Newton,
And objects at rest tended to remain at rest,
But objects in motion tended to remain in motion,
And energy was conserved and momentum
was conserved and matter was conserved,
And God saw that it was conservative.

Then God created Einstein,
And everything was relative,
And fast things became short,
And straight things became curved,
And the universe was filled with inertial frames,
And God saw that it was relatively general,
but some of it was especially relative.

Then God created Bohr,
And there was the principle,
And the principle was quantum,
And all things were quantified,
But some things were still relative,
And God saw that it was confusing.

Then God was going to create Furgeson,
And Furgeson would have unified,
And he would have fielded a theory,
And all would have been one,
But it was the seventh day,
And God rested,
And objects at rest tend to remain at rest.
