Attempts to describe the differences and similarities of men and women have beenmade by philosophers, church leaders, and day-time TV. All have failed.Our ancestors lived in trees, then we evolved. Sort of. After centuries ofdevelopment men still tend to hunt and gather. Men still consider their role to bethe provider, to bring home the clubbed furry thing for lunch. Do women still selecttheir mate for his physical prowess? "Him big, make good hunter."Women still tend to nurture and play their supportive role in our homes made ofsticks and stone. It is women who have this unique ability to bear more hunters. Itis women who still prepare the dead furry thing by combining it with organic matterplucked form the earth. Do men select their women based on physical childbearing attributes? "Big things, make good mother."Anthropologists have offered indisputable scientiﬁc proof that men and women aredifferent, and have evolved according to some kind of physical law and culturalrule. They tell us men and women have behaved much the same since thebeginning. So by now we should have it all ﬁgured out. Men and women shouldlive in their cave and form a bond, based on their primitive need to please the otherand to protect their symbiotic relationship. If it were so, then how do we account for the divorce rate? How do we account forthe thousands of unhappy marriages? Sir Isaac Newton, a 17th Century scientist,might explain it using his laws of physics.1. "An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay inmotion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by anunbalanced force."Soccer mom drives the SUV from ﬁeld to ﬁeld and will continue to do so unless sheis interrupted by a stationary object called a post. Cooking and cleaning momtends to continue cooking and cleaning unless she has to rush to aerobics class, orpick up the kids.Working man tends to stay at work unless he is interrupted with a request to showup before the diner is cold, and bring home a loaf of bread. TV man tends to stay atrest unless the game is over and has to use the sandbox, or is out of beer, or both.2. "The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportionalto the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, andinversely proportional to the mass of the object."Most people think of this as dropping bricks and feathers from tall buildings. It'sreally a reference to the relationship habits of man and woman. See, back in the17th century, and anthropologists will agree, women were considered to beobjects, and men were the force.
