“Millions saw the apple fall, Newton was the only one who asked why?”
― Bernard M. Baruch (1870-1965)
I think people may not have asked why the apple fell in the sense Newton did, but throughout our past history, people had their views and explanations about such things happening in nature. For instance:
First, things always fall down; they do not go up. That is an empirical observation.
Second, when an apple is ripe, it will fall down.
Third, apples are for us to eat; therefore, they fall down so that we can eat them. Some may call it the law of nature to help the human race.
Fourth, god wills it and it happens.
Fifth, on each apple is inscribed an invisible language the name of the person who will eat it; therefore that person gets it.
Sixth, observe what happens in nature, but follow the traditional wisdom and don’t step outside the boundaries because human intelligence is finite!
Seventh, don’t try to understand the mysteries of the ‘On High’ with your little brains; you will never understand how the Cosmic Mind works and decides!
If I have missed any, others may add, barring any nonsense!
