The things we know

Little do we know from our universe. We are just a small spot in this vast and enormous piece of three-dimensional space. We figured out quite some physical laws but we are also grasping in the darkness when it comes to the fundamentals of our universe, in it smallest, and in its largest sense. We are working hard to understand the elements, biology, behavior, history, and our societal structure. But we don’t even really know who we are. The only thing we know for certain is the fact that:

We know that things are

Even though we might not know much, we know that we are on a path of learning. We are something. There is something that reads these sentences and there are things that formed reality in a way that it is currently showing these sentences in front of your eyes. You are something and there are somethings around you. There is a certain reality in where things manifest. Things manifest as a result of history making the present not a fixed reality. This leads us to the second thing we know:

We know that things change

Right in front of our eyes and within our bodies we know that things are changing. The stars are moving, the earth is rotating, the seasons change, and the leaves fall right in front of you. All the matter and particles in the universe move through the universe causing the change to happen. Each particle has a certain inertia, that makes him move towards a certain direction over time. If you follow each particle over time, you will see a movement pattern visualizing the change of each particle. But particles don’t just move in straight lines, and because they don’t:

We know that things interact

Each second the universe is interacting on all scales on each place. Through the interactions, the physical form changes of our universe, of our earth and of ourselves. All across the universe, particles smash into each other. Some particles break up, resulting in different structures of smaller sizes. While other particles smash into each other and merge together, resulting in structures of larger sizes. Just as well, some particles are radio-active, making them unstable, fall apart and change their own form without interacting with their environment. But if everything would interact all the time with everything, you could imagine that everything would be uniformly dispersed, but:

We know that things don’t interact randomly

Many things do interact, but they just don’t move randomly. Somewhere around you, you see one object, clearly separated from another object. There is probably a chunk of metal atoms somewhere clustered together, while there are clusters of calcium right inside of you. Sure, you can say that humans consciously merged specific atoms together making objects of metal, glass, and plastic. But in nature we don’t see much different, clusters of carbon, oxygen, and helium are not randomly distributed across nature. There is a certain structure in the universe we live in. Some interactions cause chaotic movements, others cause more stable laminar movement, some structures move somewhere in between, while others hardly interact at all. The mass of objects is one factor that causes things to interact with each other. Larger amounts of mass increase the gravitational pull of objects making objects more likely to interact. Secondly, the amount of energy an object has determines the way it interacts with other objects around him. Lastly, I know that there are differences in the movement of light and matter. Light doesn’t know chaos matter can’t travel with the speed of light. But I don’t know why.

I don’t know the next step.

I don’t know why there is structure in the structure we see right in front of us. I think the differences in mass, matter, space, energy and light are suspects of the reason why things don’t interact randomly. But I wouldn’t know how to separate them properly. This would lead to a next in a sentence of a thing we know. Can you help me with the next sentence?
