Viewing the Box

ImaginationHello all and Welcome to the Discussion,

The ethos of this blog  is not pure science, is not pseudoscience – rather it is an exercise for the inquisitive mind. A chance to take a scientific concept and run with it to the ends of the earth. Essentially this is a page for discussing ideas and theories however mad or farfetched they may be. After all Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge”, and I happen to agree.

Science has become too bogged down in it’s dogged and mundane attempts to prove itself, so much so that it almost disallows genuine ingenuity. To come up with an idea or theory based on a few observations but without any “proof” or historical support is so frowned upon in science, as to almost bully its scientists into a neat little sealed box with no holes to view what’s outside. Whilst science requires the burden of proof, it shouldn’t give a sense of inhibition to its scientists in their thought process’ and what they can dream up. The theory comes first, the proof later. Let the mind run ragged into the realms of fantasy, and then reel it back to see what small, new fact may have been captured there in the net.

It is the leaps of imagination, based on some simple observations that (historically have) and will eventually lead to the largest progressions of real science and philosophy. So throw in some creativity, philosophy, metaphysics or spirituality into the mix. Lets see what our minds show us. I’m not suggesting that many or any of the ideas you or I come up with are in anyway correct, more than likely not.. but that is not the point! This an exercise for the mind, in pushing the boundaries of thought, of “what ifs”.

We are blurring the lines of science fiction and fact, what is truth and what is dogma…  The exploration of an idea should be where the joy is rather than the being right or wrong.
