Well, to be intentionally vague, it's not a material law. A 'material law' is not actually a law but a norm. For example, if I said what is the law in place that a large asteroid not hit the earth in the next few seconds, there's no such law. There is only a norm to suggest that such an event in the next few seconds is very unlikely. On the other hand, a metaphysical law would exist if it completely impossible for an asteroid to hit us in the next few seconds since the metaphysical law disallows it by fiat.
