We accept that, via observations that an electron possesses a negative charge and a proton a positive charge, both of which attracting each another. My dilemma lies here, what is the reason for the force of attraction or repulsion? If it may be due to the desire to become more stable and is logically comprehensible via mathematics of potential energy – but why does a body seek the desire to become more stable at all in the first place?
Though this question may be silly, and some might say this goes into metaphysics, but does anyone know why, or do we assume that everything – or the universe to be more precise, acts as it is, accepting it as a fact, and construct our calculations and laws above it? Are all chemical and physical knowledge based on taking the mechanics of the universe for granted?
The question was bothering me for sometime and finally decided to ask in search of an answer.
