Losing faith in science

Question from the Internet:

“Has the world’s faith in science peaked yet?”

I really think so.

And it is not really our faith in science that is waning, but it is the foundation of the most dangerous “human religion” — our blind faith in our own, inherently subjective and egocentric intellect — that is collapsing.

First of all, we are not “intellectual” creatures but we are primarily sentient, emotional beings, our emotional impressions gathered, sorted, augmented by the intellect as an auxiliary tool.

Even more importantly, our emotional impressions, all the calculations our intellect makes are based on completely egocentric, subjective “pleasure/pain” software. As a result the reality we experience, we exist in is completely distorted, false, as we see, experience only that can help us closer to selfish pleasure or distance us from individual pain.

As a result, today when this illusion has become unsustainable everything we ever build slips through our fingers, we can’t find any solutions to the mounting problems threatening our existence and science has become ineffective, theoretical, philosophical.

In order to develop, use a true, objective science that can help us understand reality and offer true solutions, first, we need to change the observer, ourselves.

We need to learn how to develop, acquire a truly selfless and thus unbiased, objective viewpoint by escaping ourselves through the desires, needs, viewp[points of others with the help of a special, purposeful, and highly practical educational method.
