Science Starts with a Question, Not a Conclusion

Image
Science is the perpetual pursuit of truth . It explores , identifies , investigates and forms models to predict future events . Models are applied to new instances and are tested against their natural environment to ensure that they are valid under similar situations . Science rests on asking questions . If science starts with a conclusion , the entire process of investigation becomes invalid . A person who jumps quickly to a conclusion without appropriate fact finding often does so based on their personal and subjective perspective . The conclusion is more about the investigator ’s personality and goals than it is about truth . The researcher projects their bias into the study and skews the results ; the entire report becomes invalidated. Starting with a question ensures that all possible outcomes are considered as an explanation . The researcher should not selectively accept and reject relevant in

Intuition and Science that Lead to Solutions

Science and Intuition seem like they have been at odds with each other but the more we learn about intuition the more we understand its knowledge base. There are two ways to gain insight into particular problems that can lead to a path of discovery and knowledge. Science and intuition are not opposed to each other and are based in some of the very same methodologies.  Intuition is a blend of logic, experience and subconscious ( Robinson, 2007). It is a fast paced analysis that leads to a better understanding of the environment as well as those “awe” inspiring moments that create insight. As a logic, experience and subconscious process it cannot be discounted as a valid method of understanding the world.  The process of intuition offers a way of seeing and experiencing the world that some people call the “sixth sense”. This is not a third eye as common folklore states but is similar to sensing and perceiving the world around us (Hales, 2012). It is an understanding of a sol

Encouraging San Diego Creativity to Solve Business and Scientific Problems

Creativity isn’t just the domain of the artistic types and has practical applications for businesses. Without new ideas, ways of accomplishing goals, and unique solutions businesses fail to develop and grow. A paper by Deepa and Gopal (2011) delves into a model of creativity and how it can be used to foster business growth. The model focuses on four main stages of creative development that pushes a unique idea to a practical solution. San Diego has an abundance of creative people and artists from all walks of life that can contribute to economic growth. Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “ Art is a jealous mistress, and, if a man have a genius for painting, poetry, music, architecture, or philosophy, he makes a bad husband, and an ill provider, and should be wise in season, and not fetter himself with duties which will embitter his day .”   The problem with artists is not the art itself but the practical use of the creative mind to solve real problems.
