Conjecture (hypothesis) comes before observation, but after understanding.
This is contrary to all science as I was taught in school. Observation, or verification, is the last step—not the first. It’s VERY hard to get people to take “understanding”/“explanation” seriously. https://t.co/fE10noVKaC
Inspired by these passages. For the bold underlined part I was thinking about our age of infinite facts, and how people don’t really understand because they want to put empirical ideas on a pedestal. There need be no foundation, it’s more like a multiversal information snowball. https://t.co/rkDumpXiGo
