Isn't it possible that spiritual forces operate around us with it's own laws?

It has only been a few decades that we have discovered the force of gravity, electromagnetism, weak force and strong force. Understanding these forces have made us able to do things that we wouldn't have even dreamed of as possible. There are still many things we do not understand about it but we have no doubt at all that it exists. Perhaps spiritual forces also do exist that we have not yet understood and perhaps understanding it will help us do things and answer questions that we are still struggling with.

      But then. you probably should start to define what "spiritual force" means to you.
