Newton’s First Law

Newton’s First Law states that an object will remain at rest unless acted upon by an external force. It may be seen as a statement about inertia, that objects will remain in their state of motion unless a force acts to change the motion.


Why is Newton’s Law Important?

An object (mind) in motion wants to stay in motion.

 – and –

An object (mind) at rest wants to stay at rest

The idea is that a thought will cause the human body to move into an action.  So, if a body is not in motion (state of depression), the thought “to go swimming” will not have the force to move the body to the swimming pool, because the body is not in motion.  We call this Depression.

If we use Newton’s theory to understand Depression, the body must already be in motion in order to fulfill these types of thoughts. This is why Depression is so difficult to overcome.

Newton’s theory states that only a force can change a motionless object to propel into movement.


For Example:

A soccer ball and a soccer player: The soccer ball stays at rest on the ground until a soccer player comes and kicks it.  The soccer player is the force that causes the soccer ball to propel forward.  If the soccer player did not kick the ball, the ball would stay at rest and not move.

Newton’s Law of Motion is the laws of mathematics and physics.  According to natural physics, depression is not easily overcome, it is an actual state of being, and if a person wants to heal from it, an external component (a cause to move the body into motion – the soccer player) is required.

How do you find “your” external component?

Socrates said,

“And he will know it without having been taught but only questioned, and find the knowledge within himself?Yes,” (Meno, 85d)


The reason why psychiatry works is because a psychiatrist asks questions which triggers (knowledge within himself) and is then expressed by emotional tears mixed with answers. Those “deep epistemic emotional answers” are your external components that move the body into motion.  Its called “knowledge,” but  be-careful, knowledge and true opinions are different – don’t mix them up!
