God is an hypothesis and a mathematician is a linguist

Science discovers, engineering invents.

Eyes are to vision as language is to discovery.

To be discovered it must first be imaginable.

To describe and communicate what can be imagined needs language.

To be “discovered” requires that something imagined in a language be “sensed” (observed or measured or calculated or inferred).

Something imagined to exist but not yet discovered is a faith – an hypothesis.

Without the attribute of hearing, there is no sound.

Discoveries need a suitable language to first describe them before they can be found (Mathematics, Chemistry, Algebra, Logic….).

Language is an invention and can not be discovered.

The application of discovered science to the manufacturing of artefacts is engineering.

Mathematics is a language and a mathematician is a linguist (an engineer).

Logic is a language and a logician is a philosopher.

Philosophers imagine and describe but neither discover nor invent.

Music is a science and a musician is a scientist.

Painting (or sculpture) is engineering and the artist is an engineer.

Medicine is a science but a practising physician is an engineer.

The symbol for a thing is not the thing.

God is an hypothesis and a mathematician is a linguist.

    Without senses there is no person. Science has enable us to extend our senses and through them detect more and more. Now we stand at a crisis. We teeter on a the brink of collapse. Perhaps we would have been better without science.

    • Ramesh Purohit Says:

      Detecting more, perse is not a problem. If something exists, its detection or not does not make a difference. As there is this faculty of senses there is also the faculty of intellect. It is is the indiscriminate use of our intellect which brings us to the brink, this in-discrimination is coming from GREED.
