i think what they mean by alchemy's FIRST law of equivalent exchange means that that specific law is the basis of Alchemy. It is, if you will, the most important law, thus given the name 'First' Law. ack! i'm confusing myself, in a nutshell, the word "FIRST" is just there to emphasize that "toukakoukan" is the most important law in Alchemy. there we go.
So basically you mean a "default" law. That ONE and ONLY law is what they believed?
