took part in these events. When we start to judge history, people can have different views of what is significant and what isn’t. Take the same example of Napoleon. Although he limited the press, he also promoted the rights of the peasants. This can be seen as a similarity of the Old Regime. Does this mean that Napoleon’s rule was much like the Old Regime? Some people may think that the suppressing the press is more significant point that the rights of the peasants and others may think the opposite. Therefore, history is human’s unsuccessful attempt in applying logic to explain past events. Physics can be seen as an imitation of the world so that it would be suitable to apply logic in order to explain this phenomena ‘nature’ as well as the world. With this imitation, physics explains nature pretty well. For example, according to the ideal gas law, PV=NRT. Which means pressure times the volume equals the number of moles of that certain gas, times the constant R, times absolute temperature. Yet an imitation is just merely an imitation and does not fully explain nature. For example, the ideal gas law only applies to an ideal gas, which doesn’t exist. To be an ideal gas, the gas has to possess certain qualities, such as the molecules have to be in continuous motion and no energy must be lost in collisions with another. In physics, we just assume that all gases are ideal to make calculation, thus the application of logic, easier. Something in nature is impossible to imitate because the fact of imitating makes it no longer a part of nature, but a human creation. One may argue that physics can explain the motion of a car and it’s force when it hits a brick wall. But what kind of human can drive a car at the exact speed of say 60 kilometers per hour for a specific amount of time without having some faults? Also when the car does hit the wall, not all the force goes to the wall but some is lost between friction, heat and in forms of sound. This is ignored when calculating the force to allow logic to be applied to this subject. Therefore physics is another unsuccessful human attempt to use logic to explain the world around us. It is not merely the subjects history and physics that logic is applied to the world as a whole. It is all the subjects, math, chemistry, English. All are unsuccessful attempt, for logic is basically a tool to help our understanding of nature, it does not originate from within. It is not the concept of logic that is at fault but where it is applied to, that is a problem. There is no problem in applying logic to physics but ‘physics’ is not achieving it’s purpose in completely understanding nature for that fact that nature cannot be duplicated. If nature cannot be recreated, how are able to capture a moment of it to understand it? Therefore, subjects are merely logic applied different aspects of a human simulation of nature that is changed in varies ways in order to satisfy the human’s want of information and comprehend the world around.
