You can't blame physics for everything!

You can't blame physics for everything. And, you can't explain everything in terms of purely physical means. A case in point is offered by Einstein himself:

"Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and its seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour an it seems like a minute. That's relativity."

So there you have it.
