science — 1 a the
systematic study of man and his environment based on the deduction and inferences which can be made, and the
general laws which can be formulated, from reproductible observations and measurements of events and parameters within the universe; b
the knowledge so obtained. 2 systematized knowledge in general. 3 a a particular branch of knowledge; b skill,
proficiency. Oxford Dictionary
Peter: I do discern two strands of science:
physical science (which properly contains ‘pure science’ and
metaphysical science (which properly contains ‘science fiction’
and ‘mystical science’)
The scientific studies involved with studying the ‘big’
picture of the universe, the macroscopic – cosmology – as well as the study of the microscopic – quantum physics – both leave the realm
of reproducible observations and measurements of events and parameters within the universe.
As science studies the cosmos, the measurements very quickly
become so huge as to be inconceivable, non-sensical (beyond what we can perceive with our senses) and immeasurable – both in distance and
time. Similarly, when science studies the sub-atomic, the measurements very quickly become so minute as to be inconceivable, non-sensical
(beyond what we can perceive with our senses) and immeasurable.
Science has great difficulty with both infinite and zero – both
figures make any mathematical equation instantly and irrevocably unworkable. Given the lack of any measurable factual data to work with, both
the macroscopic and microscopic sciences have developed into theoretical sciences – a field of study where reproducible observations and
measurements of events and parameters play no part and where theories, speculation, imagination and fantasy abound.
Unfettered by any physical considerations or restraints these sciences thus become
metaphysical sciences and, as such, have conveniently co-opted many theories from the mystical world. Thus we have the ‘parallel universes
theory’ (‘other-worlds’), creation and doomsday events (God by any other name), particles that only exist when one is looking at them (an
illusionary world), the universal Theory of Everything (the Truth), etc., etc. The cute thing is that theoretical scientists quote the ancient
mystics as validation of their theories, and the modern mystics quote the theoretical scientists as validation for their fantasies – an
infinite regression of insanity.
