An insidious confusion of terms is what is preventing most people from having greater health and happiness. After noodling around this area for some time, I have finally figured out the root. It is the confusion between science and technology. While these two are certainly related, they are NOT the same thing.
Science is defined as: “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.” Science is a methodology and how it is studied and used is called the scientific method. As a method, for understanding how things work, there may not be any better. (Though this doesn’t mean it isn’t without flaws).
