If only the fidelity to Reality of the powers of observation of human beings could reliably be relied upon, in every sphere.

Mike, Norwalk

Patrick, said well. To the statement, maybe, sometimes - on occasion it can.

E Archer, NYC

Our limited powers of observation are all we've got! Knowing that they are limited keeps me humble. The truth is ever in front of us, it needs no props; it need only be discerned. As a scientist, I observe and contemplate my observation, I imagine and theorize, then I apply that to pose further questions. Every experiment yields a response. Discovery is a kind of dialogue between me and the ideas spawned by my own questions. The key to discovering the truth is then to make sure I speak to myself as truthfully as I can, and the truth reveals itself. ;-)
