Empiricists did not think Isaac Newton’s law of gravitational force was at risk. Then Leibniz came along and skillfully added identity to the interpretation. The critique was non-conforming, but that did not mean Newtonian physics was thrown out. It was “made” to be more accurate using the empirical method (i.e., yielding to the method), “creating” experiments that demonstrate what objective reality actually is, on demand.
The on-demand dimension has the element of propriety–ownership!
Who owns the force of gravity?
If nobody owns it, everybody owns it. It is commonly divisible by logical condition, but how you use it is not.
