There is a theory that states: "If anyone finds out what the universe is for it will disappear and be replaced by something more bizarrely inexplicable." There is another theory that states: "This has already happened...
We’ve managed to conquer the moon. We can forecast the financial markets’ progress (Very accurately, although not always responsibly). We are able to send data through the air for immense distances. But the more we know, the better we realize how many great mysteries remain hidden from our consciousness.
Technology makes vast steps forward, following science, on the way of explaining the world that we live in. Some people consider explaining the universe in scientific terms possible. In their opinion, there is not a thing which cannot be measured, counted and described. By implication, these positivists rely on axiomatic theories, based on suppositions which sometimes emerge to be false and therefore they completely ruin the whole thinking systems derived from them. We have experienced a few of these ground-breaking discoveries. In mathematics, the denial of Euclides’ postulates for instance. It transformed the rules which were regarded unquestionable before. However this doesn’t happen every day, from time to time it arrives, blows up several certainities and leaves poor scientists sleepless.
Science is here to offer us a deeper insight, to help us understand inexplicable. Off course I don’t mean fully understand, because it’s in my view hopeless. Nevertheless, we should try to approach at least partial understanding that is within our options. We ought not to be absolutely dependent on science for it can cause us huge troubles, when it proves to be wrong. Luckily, our everyday lives are not so closely attached to the direct impact of scientists’ errors. Thus we can lead a good enough life without being unsettled by these unexpected events. Human is a highly inquiring so it’s natural for him to ask. But he must get used to not getting the answers sometimes, because they don’t exist. That’s the way it is and the way it should be.
