World as an Interacting Whole

The world is an ordered system of many active elements that interact with each other in a stable relationship which we call physical laws. (i.e. element interactions, mass and gravity) Science has revealed that our world-system is not merely an aggregate of many separate unrelated laws but rather a tightly interlocking hole.
