Take any energy and try to accelerate it - u get reaction force (resistance) and mathematical relationship between this force and acceleration like F= (something) x (d^2x/dt^2) + (something else) x (d^3x/dx^3) +...

The first "something" term is usually called mass or inertia and thus for small higher derivatives you get Newton law: F=ma.
