transitive verb use.to state.in advance as an introduction or explanation; to state or assume as a proposition in an argument intransitive verb use.to make a premise
Word history: Why do we call a single building the premises? To answer this question, we must go back to the Middle Ages. But first, let it be noted that premises comes from the past participle praemissa, which is both a feminine singular and a neuter plural form of the Latin verb praemittere 'to send in advance, utter by way of preface, place in front, prefix'. In Medieval Latin the feminine form praemissa was used as a term in logic, for which we still use the term 'premise' descended from the Medieval Latin word, first recorded in a work composed before 1380. Medieval Latin praemissa in the plural meant 'things mentioned before' and was used in legal documents, almost always in the plural, a use that was followed in Old French and Middle English, both of which borrowed the word from Latin. A more specific legal sense in Middle English 'that property, collectively, which is specified in the beginning of a legal document and which is conveyed, as by grant', was also always in the plural in Middle English and later Modern English. And so it remained when this sense was extended to mean 'a house or building with its grounds or appurtenances' a usage first recorded before 1730.

physics.noun
physics is the scientific study of forces such as heat, light, sound, pressure, gravity and electricity and the way that they affect objects (the laws of physics); physics is about discovering the fundamental unity at the basis of the surface of diversity of the universe, in other words underneath all we see and know of; you dig beneath the molecular, atomic and nuclear levels using particle accelerators to discover the unity deep at the core of physical reality; the laws of physics evidence complexity, yet work as some great intelligence designed them to function, there is no other answer than they were designed to be as they are; physics is the science dealing with the properties, changes, interaction, etc. of matter and energy, subdivided into mechanics, thermodynamics, optics, acoustics, etc. and by which science provides consistent explanations of experience resulting from research regarding the physical universe, its laws, forms, structure, various systems and their processes; on the material level the mathematically corroborative laws of physics and chemistry manage a growing organism's reactions to its genetic instructions; these are far more important than meagre.(by comparison, yet still a gargantuan task) attempts to understand the human genome, a minute part in the overall pattern of life.

The laws of physics have to do with the study of the natural world and its physical properties, interactions, processes (or, laws {how these laws or processes work, so man can become aligned with them and so be able to do things, such as airplane flight, etc.}). The laws of physics include the science of matter and energy and their interactions, which are integrated in traditional fields such as acoustics, optics, mechanics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism, as well as in modern extensions including atomic and nuclear physics, cryogenics, solid state physics, particle physics and plasma physics. In short, the laws of physics transverse all we know in our material world, however, not much is said of its origin.

Metaphysics ('meta' means after) has to do with the principles examining the nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, substance and attribute, fact and value.

Modern physics is built on two foundations, that of relativity and quantum theory. These two theories have not been reconciled. Einstein attempted to reconcile his theory by using geometrics. He spent the last 30 years of his life searching for a 'unified field theory' or 'theory of everything' (the Universe reducing to a single set of rules, a unifying principle) which would unite his general relativity of space/time and gravitation theory with quantum mechanics. The calculations were not possible before computers. Now it has been found by Dr. John Hagelin.

Because of the continuing inability to reconcile them, physicists continued searching for the "Theory of Everything" (pbs.org/wnet/hawking/mysteries/html/myst.html), but Stephen Wolfram (brilliant developer of.Mathematica-software) in his new book.A New Kind of Science-may have also come close.

The way the Great Infinite One 'keeps throwin' us curves', it makes man have to think deep into even beginning to understand the invisible world.

Physicists are working on a programming tool that allows games designers to add the laws of physics to their virtual worlds.
