Just as with concepts in general, complex laws are based on combinations of simpler more universal laws. There are laws which apply to all matter, energy and consciousness where ever they may be, thus such laws are rightly called universal. Such laws were not created, cannot be changed or destroyed thus they are rightly described as transcendental.
Here is a list of possible universal laws. Personally I feel that many of them are merely derivitations of a few more fundamental laws which I have placed in the top few.
