The beauty of EM, going around in a circle force

Now today I had a physics insight of wisdom. Those rare occasions in
which you know something so well that you have an insight that
encompasses the entire subject of physics. Let me tell the experience
as fast as possible.

In electricity magnetism of a physics textbook covers much of the
textbook, there are chapters of gravity, there are chapters of
thermodynamics and chapters of nuclear physics. But of all the topics
of physics, only physics is the science of going around in a circle, a
electric circuit and where the force is breaking up of Space and then
putting Space back together. Only EM is where you have Space of a wire
loop and you move a magnet and have that Space broken up into a
electric current flow and then remove the magnet, and space is back
together as before.

Here is the beauty of that realization. Let us take Gravity. Is
gravity a closed loop where you bring in some material object and move
it around and there is a change in the closed loop and Space and then
you remove the object and the Space is as was previously? No.

Let us take Thermodynamics. Can we take a close loop in Space in
thermodynamics and enter some material to make the loop change, Space
to change and then restore Space to its original form? No again.

Only the topic of Electricity and Magnetism is unique to physics for
it is the topic in which depends on loops or circles back to a source
and which you draw out forces and energy from just pure Space of the
loop.

So what is the deep meaning, the deep importance?
It is the fact that only EM is the dynamics of Space and that EM is
the axioms of physics. So that EM can derive gravity, derive
thermodynamics, derive nuclear physics, for only EM takes a loop in
Space and generates energy and forces from space and then puts them
back together as before.

If Gravity or Thermodynamics were the axioms of physics, then in
gravity or thermodynamics, they would depend on a circle in Space and
breaking up that circle with a motion of an object to have energy and
forces coming out and then restoring that Space to original form.

Of course my above message is meaningless to those who have not
mastered or learned physics. The above is meaningful to those who have
learned physics, and who realize that there is something mysteriously
different and powerful about EM, for it is totally unlike other topics
of physics like gravity or thermodynamics or nuclear physics. EM is
the heart of physics and from EM you can derive these outlying minor
topics of gravity, thermodynamics, nuclear physics, quantum mechanics.

I could break into poetry here:

Behold, to take Space
and draw a circle in it
and thrust a metal bar
and how other bodies
move around that circle
then removing the bar
the Space is back to before.

This post belongs in the chapter of the axioms of physics.

Now another beautiful reflection hit me today also.
It is a question more than a reflection of wisdom.
The question is how much would mathematics have
progressed or developed if mathematics never had
axioms? Would not mathematics be a compartmentalized subject with
little coherence or consistency if not for an axiom system. Would not
geometry by a thousand pieces detached from one another? Would math be
just calculations and details but never any broad expansive theory?
Would math be just a huge list of rules and details of facts.

It is hard to imagine mathematics without axioms. But why would
Physics, the subject that subsumes mathematics, why would Physics ever
go on without axioms? And without axioms of physics, it is just a
subject of many compartments that seem to never relate to one another.
