Einstein has shown that mass distorts space and time, but even in this, there is no answer to the question of what drives objects. Modern physics denies influence from a distance and tries to explain gravity in terms of gravitational waves, or hypothetical particles called gravitons. But after all this, the question still remains whether this is indeed an explanation, or just a description, since even on those gravitons – assuming their existence is proven – one can ask what motivates them, and so on (thanks to R. Michael Avraham, Doctor of Physics, for his review of these scientific details).
By this possibility, we do know how to predict how inanimate objects will move, but we have no idea yet what causes or enables the movement itself. The laws of nature, like gravity, do not constitute an explanation for reality, but only a description of it. In the same way, if we found that every time we put two tennis balls next to each other, they start spinning around each other, we would determine that there is some natural law that causes this, invent some name for it and calculate its exact properties.
All this without being able to explain how and why inanimate balls can move in this way. If we still insist on asking what the reason is for this behavior, the answer will be “this is how it is,” or “this is nature.” It is found, then, that the great and strange mystery that we have opened – how inanimate objects can move – has no explanation or answer.
All that can be said is, that they do move somehow, and that’s the end of the verse. This is indeed a legitimate claim since any explanation must be stopped at some point in “like this,” in hard facts. But in such a case, not only do we have to accept that inanimate objects can move “like this”, but also that somehow their movements are coordinated and regular throughout the universe, without any factor coordinating between them.
Billions upon billions of particles and objects of different kinds all act as if they had read the same rulebook, or coordinated among them how to behave. Isn't that strange, mysterious, and astonishing?
To dismiss it simply as “like this” is nothing more than a “rude fist answer,” in Nietzsche's words.
