“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Sir Isaac Newton’s third Law of Motion explains much about the kickback of a fired gun, a firefighter’s lean-in to counteract the push-back of a coursing water hose, the reason a bicycle is easier to balance when it is moving than when it is stationary, or the displacement of water when something is dropped into it. But does this law have applications beyond physics?
Do our relationships bear witness to Newton’s scientific explanations as well? Do actions always beget equal and opposite reactions when it comes to interacting with others? If so, how? If not, why not?
Will you join me on a philosophical exploration? Weigh in…tell me what you think. Don’t worry about being right, or clear, or wise…I’m just curious.
And if this photo sparks completely different thoughts, leave those as well.
