With simple observation one can know that in the realization of these phenomena, there is evidence for natural law, for example, rain always comes from top to bottom; Bodies tend to fall by gravity; After the night comes the day, etc.
With the investigation of the constancy and harmony of the universe, humanity throughout history seek and find laws according to which these phenomena follow. Hence all science seeks laws that regulate the action of the universe.
Law, in general, is a rule of order, norm or mandate, which means broadly a worthy cause or model to which all things must conform, whether in the physical, social or customs.
