The Spirit of the Enterprise
Natural and technological phenomena both share a unitary origin;
Both natural processes and machine performances come into being by the same causal principles;
There is a unique, eternal, and universal cause for every effect (or set of effects);
The connections between causes and effects are the fundamental mechanisms of Nature;
The realization of any mechanism is governed by a Natural Law and, consequently, the performance of any machine is governed by Natural Law;
The mathematical descriptions of the motions of mechanical devices, and machines, are mathematical descriptions of Natural Law; and,
The only distinction between natural phenomena and machine performances is that the latter require human intervention to come into being whilst the former do not.
