Physics explained from a historical view
Brief History of Physics
During childhood development phases, many people tend to be very curious. Young children are into everything, from opening closed doors, to sticking their fingers into Vaseline containers, and to trying to play with matches.
With that being stated up above, the truth about our human nature is that we are all inquisitive to find out how things work, what makes them function, why is the world the way it appears to be right in front of our very eyes, so on and so forth.
This is the very premise which was considered a reason for the desire to create a massive movement and development into the eventual mastery of the natural world around us culminating into the subject of the sciences.
The very scientific and highly technical subject of Physics was born, out of this sort of thought process, where many humans were roaming around from time to time, and decided to peek a bit deeper into how things worked. The funny thing as it is with everything we know of today, or have in our social environments, is that of our minds and how they've managed to grip to this physical world around us, and it on going attempt to define it all.
We as human beings have managed to come up with our very own examination process, scaling, measuring, dividing, and conquering the physical landscape as well as tapestry of all things known in existence. All of these scientific discoveries have surely derived from something else that came from the past, and definitely when it comes to such a intensely powerful subject as Physics.

Around the time of 650 BCE – 480 BCE, such a thing as Natural Philosophy had come around. During those times we humans weren’t so into manipulating the physical world as we have become in the more modern era of the 21st century.
We once were in a phase of trying to make much more sense of the world around us, this sensitivity to that of nature, and our determination to find out what makes things tick, began to emerge even more shortly thereafter, It all began however with a group known as the Pre-Socratic philosophers (Before Socrates).
This was a time of great change in the archaic world we once had lived in, and humanity was in for a rude awakening of a technological kind like no other moment before. Reason and making logical observations came to the rescue for many philosophers, and the new age was on the rise for sure, where men became owners of the land, of the definitions of such territories, and the staking to such claims and idealism's as Atom-ism, as well as a vastly more covert operative and more intensely organized usage of Alchemy.
Such brilliant minds
Unknowingly the founders of modern philosophy, had also been the co-founders of what would be shortly known as Classical Physics, which would eventually lead humans to discover even more things about our ever functioning universe, the planetary systems, how the constellations work in unit cohesion with all of the celestial bodies, and the developments of subjects like thermodynamics, nuclear physics, astronomy, engineering, mathematics itself, chemistry, biology, and so many other subjects that rely on the knowledge of the physical world around us.
The greatest minds of certain scholarly individuals have collectively been responsible for much of the uncovering of the scientific proofs much of the world today now has a great deal of knowledge of, and without them none of this would have been possible, which all leads back to curiosity.
- To fulfill such a reality is to learn of greater potentials that are in existence in and all throughout visible as well as none visible life, and so this has been our greatest triumph over any darkness we have had to face in life on earth.
- The laws of motion are all around us, and cannot be denied, and even if they are to be expressed by some alien looking formula, or measured by some computerized Cartesian plane coordinate systems today, leading people to physically cross over land masses and all.
- Thanks to folks like Copernicus, Sir Issac Newton, Plato, Aristotle, and so many other great minds we all bear witness to such modern marvels as a space station, air crafts, video games, snow boards, a toaster oven, even a house, or a bridge that so many humans depend on today.
Why does this physical world have such high demands on us all?
To become motivated to learn more, is the other victory us humans have experienced thus far as a whole, so all throughout the ages of time we’ve surprised one another creating all sorts of amazing contraptions out of pure uncut nature, and physics has become the very subject above all other logically deductive, yet reasoned subjects that all foundational structures of our earthly knowledge rest itself upon.
This all would eventually allow such a subject literally hold its true base supports heavily grounded under, as well as upon, and to be firmly solidified itself by, as in the base of a pyramid or building structure that's statically sound & fortified.
"The mastery of modern physics simply to figure out natural phenomena, is a true undeniable reality, and our very strong hold we rest all of our scientific physical perspective's upon." Original quote by hubpages author Mike Pugh aka Cloud Explorer.
This reality has made the study and applications of Physics the number one sought after knowledge of all of our modern sciences especially in terms of physical design, and something to truly be reckoned with as a powerful yielding force that humanity has at their disposal, and as one of the worlds greatest human generated accomplishments ever known to mankind. "Hence, now we have both civilization & that of modernity as its direct source and shear outcome".
