The principle success in the physical sciences is the publication of many findings that eventually converge (possibility) or diverge (falsehood).
We know we cannot intuit the first principles of the universe – although IMHO we are getting close to returning to ‘ether’ lol.
But when in matters of biology, sentience, and cooperation, we cannot STOP ourselves from intuiting answers, and as such we attempt to propose conclusions too early.
Worse, we cannot even compose tests that do not in and of themselves produce desired answers. We simply do not know how to.
So in both the imperceptible physical world, the imperceptible sentient world, and the imperceptible cooperative (social/political/economic) worlds, we are equally blind.
The problem is we think we are unequally blind.
Anything you intuit that conflicts with the least-cost algorithm of nature is wrong.
Nature can’t choose. She does what is cheapest, and what is cheapest is the first available transformation.
