Truth Isn’t Always What You Think It Is

Science (the institution, comprising of processes and people executing the “scientific process”) sometimes travels past the boundary of its authority and its own established laws, or truth.

For years we have been told about human limitations, that the human body is complex etc. and for the most part, there is truth in those proclamations.

Most of what we hear is backed by science, but science is NOT truth.  It is a tool (a process, an institution etc.) to explore our world, and the Universe we live in.

But it cannot create firm boundaries that are 100% true in every instance.  Even gravity does NOT force us to stay “down” (“what goes up must come down” is a fallacy under the right conditions).

Science is an exploration tool for our environment, and nothing more.  It needs to stay and operate within those boundaries.

Watch this video, an interview with a man named Wim Hof, and you’ll see what I’m referring to.  Even the institution of our own science cannot understand our own biology fully.

The institution of science isn’t a “bad” thing, that isn’t where I’m going with this post.

But limitations and our Universe are so vast that any claim to “truth” by the scientific institution needs to be carefully examined before verifying said claim.
