– What is Mechanics? A part of the car which always breaks down?
And Thermodynamics? A kind of aerobic, but in hot springs?
These are branches of Physics. Mechanics is a Science of motion, and thermodynamics – is a science of heat.
– And what is Physics?
– Physics, by an ancient thinker, Aristoteles, is the knowledge of Nature,
i.e. on everything that you can touch.
– So I can touch Physics?
– Sure! And everything that you can NOT touch was, by Aristoteles,
called extra-nature or metaphysics.
– So may I play with it
– Sure! And you will certainly discover something.
Welcome to playing-with-everything-that-you-can-touch. At least virtually, i.e. on the computer screen.
(And what we can not touch, let’s leave it to meta-physicist.)
