Breaking Ranks

I am one of those strange creatures I drag myself out of bed early each morning to go for a walk. This lasts for an hour or so, some call it exercise. The strange thing is it does clear one’s head and it does change perspective. Recently I have found at this moment in time the seasons seem a little confused and mixed up, the daffodils are in bloom, there are hedgerow banks full of primroses.

Then when that is done, you expose your findings to your peers for them to dissect and replicate the results. Only then do you call the findings science, before that it is just lab tests. It is the result that is called science, a resilient fact. …»

In other words people will convince themselves of a falsehood rather than alter their model of the world (or tell a lie as in the well-known Leon Festinger and James Carlsmith study carried out back in 1954)..…»
