People have a robust ability to reason about the physical world. Not only can we recognize objects and navigate our surroundings, we can also perform complex physical actions (e.g. driving a car), make complex judgments of scenes (e.g. will a stack of plates fall over?), and reason about counterfactuals with which we have no direct experience (e.g. what would happen if you dropped a bowl of Jell-O...
