Laws of science (Physics) applies everywhere, all the time, to anything that you do and even to software projects like database systems. Physics is in action even while you are talking (sound waves), walking (friction between ground and your feet), sleeping or writing software. Every software developer/user must have a very basic and minimum understanding of the science - namely Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Statistics and Mathematics. It is suggested you give atleast one reading to a "Introductory/Basic" textbook on the above subjects. As per science, it is impossible to build a database software system which will be 100 % perfect and bug free. But by combining the energies of millions of people around the world via internet it is possible to achieve a near perfect database software system. Individually, the energy of each person will be minute, but by networking a large number of people, the total energy will be huge which can be focused on a project to generate a perfect system. It is very clear that internet can network a vast number of people, which implies internet can produce high quality software products.
Science would like every software developer and end-user not to be narrow-single-track minded but to be open and give a chance to "The Internet Products" like PostgreSQL, Linux, etc..
