Newton’s third law: If an object A exerts a force on object B, then object B must exert a force of equal magnitude and opposite direction back on object A.
There’s a reaction for every action. Actions bare consequences.
Newton identified the relationship between action and reaction, between action and consequence and gave this relationship a meaning. He was not the only one, there were many of his kind.
I have a feeling that ours is to discover what’s already there and give meaning to it.
