the physical universe considered as an orderly system subject to natural (not human or supernatural) laws
In philosophy, the natural order is the moral source from which natural law seeks to derive its authority. It encompasses the natural relations of beings to one another, in the absence of law, which natural law attempts to reinforce. In contrast, divine law seeks authority from God, and positive law seeks authority from government.

The term is used by Friedrich von Hayek in his writings to designate divine law. It starts with god, then the monarch. Keywords: Cosmos
