Our so-called “scientific world” has leeched [intended usage] the awe and wonder from much of what we see. [/quote]
Ray, that saddens me to read. I think your idea of the “scientific world” must have little to do with actual science.
For me as a biologist, the more I learn, the more awe and wonder I experience. I’m sorry that you have such a twisted idea of science.
In real science, exposing one mechanism leads to awe, wonder, and questions about many more underlying mechanisms that we don’t yet understand.
[quote]Science in its own way is exposing the the mechanisms that mask the feelings over a beautiful sunset when one knows it is caused by wildfire smoke, smog, or a volcano. We have to forget the causation and wonder at the result.
