Science is a method for learning,
learning about ourselves and the world around us by using
processes, procedures, testing
methods, tools, skills and accumulated knowledge.
This understanding helps us predict future outcomes so that we
can make better
decisions. Science is also used to create complex tools, which
in return gives us the ability to create even more complex tools
and create even more complex machines, thus we learn even more.
Science is also a process for discovering, which everyone can benefit from.
But the greatest power of science is that anyone
can be a contributor to this valuable knowledge resource, as millions
have done in our past.
And millions of people can
also benefit from this knowledge, whether they're living in the present or people who will be living in our
future. So all this accumulated knowledge becomes the building
blocks of new discoveries and new understandings. Not just progressing our advances
in technologies, but progressing our understanding of ourselves,
so we can be more aware and make better
choices and make better decisions. Another benefit from science
is that, if and when things do change, we can use our knowledge
and tools to react accordingly instead of just suffering from
the changes in our world, or suffer from the changes in ourselves. So science is also part
early warning system, but only if it is used effectively and
Just experiencing something doesn't guarantee that
you will understand it, or learn from it, or benefit from it.
That is why knowledge is so extremely important, because
knowledge helps us understand our experiences a lot better.
You have to see inward as well as see outward. Science does not define reality or
define what is perceived to be real,
science only defines cause and effect, which for now is
extremely important to everyone. Just because we know how
something works does not mean that we actually know "why" it
works, or do we fully understand the dangers, because we don't know
everything. We're learning more and we're
learning faster. We're communicating more and we're
communicating faster. But we're not efficient or effective
enough in order to benefit from our increased speed. So science
needs to solve this problem before we waste this momentum and
miss our chance in creating a better world for everyone.
Sometimes if you're moving too fast you may fly past important
information that you need in order to understand something. But luckily,
Science doesn't only speed up our ability to learn, science can
also be used to slow us down, so that we can see more details
and become more aware, so that we can make better choices and make better decisions.
just like every tool in our world, tools can be misused. So
science must explain the proper uses of our technologies and the proper
uses of our accumulated knowledge. Science must also explain the dangers of misusing our tools by creating a
Operators Manuals and good
Instruction Manuals that anyone can understand. Remember, science does not know
everything, but what science does know is extremely important
and extremely valuable.

we'll end up having to

Why we need more Scientists
The internet has made us aware of all kinds of possibilities in
the science world. We have discovered so much. This is one of
the main reasons why we need more scientists. We need more
people researching all these new discoveries that we are making
everyday. So much more needs to be understood in order for us to
effectively utilized all this knowledge. It's a gold mine.

These skills are very useful for anyone who cares about
improving themselves or improving their surroundings. Science
will also increase a persons awareness about themselves and the
world, exposing a sea of possibilities.
"Science may not have all the answers, but
it will help you to understand things a little better, so that
maybe you will find the answers that you need. This is what we
found to be true, but every situation is different, so it might
not be true for you."

communicate instructions to computerized machines. But they are
more then just machines. Computers are one of the most
incredible tools that man has ever made,
computers are an
human intelligence. Computers provide us with more
processing abilities and more memory capacities then any other
time in human history. These computerized machines are humans
analytical partner that aids us in understanding ourselves, and
our world. Humans quest for knowledge now has a powerful tool, a
tool that gives us endless potential. And with the
internet, we can now for the first time combine the collective
wisdom, knowledge and experiences of millions of people from all
over the world. We no longer need to depend on one country, or
on one leader, or on one government. Because we now have the
collective strength of each other. And together we will create a
better world for everyone. So, what does your language do?
