How to initiate all physics with the button?

Now my game (all physics inside it) initiates just when i run it on the iOS Simulator, but i would like to initiate it with pushing a PLAY button.

This is my button's code:

var playButton:SKSpriteNode = SKSpriteNode(imageNamed:"playButton")
playButton.position = CGPoint(x: self.frame.size.width / 2 , y: self.frame.size.height / 2)
playButton.setScale(0.5)
self.addChild(playButton)

I don't know much about Swift, but you can have a state variable (that can  be START, PLAY, GAME_OVER) and in your update method you can check what the state is and respond differently. Like so:

-(void)update
{
 if (self.state == START)
 {
  if (button pressed)
   self.state = PLAY;
 }
 else if (self.state == PLAY)
 {
  if (!physics)
   [physics init];
  [physics update];
 }
 else if (self.state == GAME_OVER)
 {
  //...
 }



}

It's called finite state machine.
