Nature, in the broadest logic, is alike to the natural world, physical world, or stuff world. "Nature" refers to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the cosmic.
The word nature is consequent from the Latin word natura, or "fundamental qualities, innate disposition", and in very old times, exactly meant "birth". Natura was a Latin translation of the Greek word physis (φύσις), which originally related to the intrinsic characteristics that plants, animals, and other features of the world build up of their own agreement. The idea of nature as a entire, the physical universe, is one of several expansions of the original notion; it began with certain core applications of the word φύσις by pre-Socratic philosophers, and has steadily gained currency ever since. This usage was confirmed during the start of modern scientific method in the last more than a few centuries.
Within the a variety of uses of the word today, "nature" often refers to geology and wildlife. Nature may refer to the general realm of various types of living plants and animals, and in some cases to the processes associated with inanimate objects – the way that particular types of things survive and alter of their own agreement, such as the weather and geology of the Earth, and the matter and energy of which all these things are composed. It is often taken to mean the "natural environment" or wilderness–wild animals, rocks, forest, beaches, and in common those things that have not been substantially altered by human intervention, or which persist even with human being intervention. For, example, manufactured objects and human interaction generally are not considered part of nature, unless eligible as, for example, "human nature" or "the whole of nature". This more traditional concept of natural things which can still be found today implies a distinction between the natural and the non-natural, with the non-natural being understood as that which has been brought into being by a human consciousness or a human mind. Depending on the particular situation, the term "natural" might also be illustrious from the unnatural, the supernatural, or synthetic.
