Q: Is it possible to beat the laws of physics?

Physicist: No…
But to be fair, when a physical law is beaten it stops being a law.

    It’s impossible by definition :)

  2. sharafali.a says:

    it is possible… otherwise physics doesnt exist. (every action there will be an eaqual reaction)

  3. Aaron Weston says:

    Yes it is, virtual particles violate the law of conservation all the time. All the vaccum of space is filled with them, but they exist for such a short time that “reality doesn’t notice them”.

  4. Bob says:

    Would you consider this as a physical law?

    The moment you can contain, understand and measure “nothing” to which all laws, not just physics, but laws of everything existing came from, will be the point in which you have beat the laws of physics. Afterall, all laws are “able” because of time, space and matter. Only in the mind, spirit and imagination is such a thing possible, that being the realm of infinity. There may seem to be an endless amount of possibilities within this universe, but there is not an infinite amount since our universe did have a beginning. Tap into nothing and you’ll find no beginning, nor end.

    You can find loopholes in physical laws (such as warp drives breaking the light barrier), but you cannot break them.

    Aaron Weston you said:

    That is not true, virtual particles are not created from nothing, and they do never violate the conservation of energy-first, virtual particles are created from vacuum, and vacuum is not nothing, it is still smething, that vacuum is made from energy fields (quantum energy fields in this case), fields are the one whoa re creating mater-anti-matter/virtual particles electron/positron; photon/anti-photon particles until they annihilate each other, and every time you annihilate virtual particles/anti-particles you don’t get nothing you have radiation/energy, also look at the atom-it is electrically neutral, and because of that there shouldn’t be energy in it because the numbers of positive and negative charge equals 0-just like in virtual particles/anti-particles cases you also have the opposite that annihilates each other-however, the energy is still here, and it is not created out of anywhere, but it is conserved, for example in both atom and in case of virtual particles/antiparticles it is conserved in the form of fields and radiation.
    So, no you cannot break any of the laws of physics.
