Science is the well-spring of technology, and we live today in a world defined by technology. The power delivered to us by science has given us to believe that it is the well-spring of truth. In fact, while scientists focus on differentiating truth from untruth, the importance of science lies elsewhere. Part of it lies in the strategies used by scientists, and the impact it has on their personalities. The primary value, however, lays in the assurance that science provides when we use it to project the consequences of cultural investment.
To re-iterate: science is the process of developing languages that accurately model objective reality – or those phenomena that we believe we can present to another for independent examination. In our discussion of objective reality, we recognized that objective phenomena are variable. One of the impediments to organized science is achieving a consensus regarding which parts of experience are significant. In other words: What aspects of the variable experience do we believe are essential to apprehension of the shared experience?
