Isn't that the way rules are usually made?

We live in an "orderly" universe because scientists have observed what
they can, fit the phenomena into a structure, and called it a rule,
implying that what is happening is happening because it has to. In fact
we are living in the middle of an explosion. I think as a simile it
applies rather well aptly to language.
