“The same is true of all locomotion. Rockets, for example, eject massive amounts of matter at high speed to push themselves in the opposite direction. Animals in the sea and air push against water and atmosphere respectively. There is always a push to move.”

Just some things I was thinking about one day.
Decided to post it to get any constructive feedback.
FYI, this scale is not fully fleshed out or set in stone.
Also, some things can belong to multiple descriptions. 🙂
From my old blog, http://ai-brain.blogspot.com/2012/12/scale-of-intelligence-levels.html
Imagine people in Europe during the time of the Bubonic plague.
On one side, people with a strong rational fear of rats.
On the other, a bunch of morons in red hats waiving around their pet rats and talking about freedom..
Trumps say many things out loud that I too have also thought. The thoughts that float into my awareness, are considered for a brief moment, and then discarded as illogical, irrational, inane, incorrect, crazy, senseless, absurd, sophistic, unreasonable, and unscientific..
What refutes science:
What doesn’t refute science:
Your favorite politician.
Your half-baked opinion after watching two YouTube videos.
“A lot of time mainstream science agrees with stuff ten years later.”
[She was talking about “Alternative Medicines” and to avoid something scientifically-valid if you “follow the money!”.]
No. No, we do not. We follow verifiable facts and conclusions from following the Scientific Method.
If it is unverifiable, it is discarded. For everything verifiable, it is added to our collective knowledge which helps further new discoveries and new ideas.
Many discoveries and research are made from plants, animals, insects, previous research & science, etc.. along with all other sources.
We don’t discard something because someone “made money” from a discovery or research. The money does not invalidate the Science or research done. The two are intertwined, yes. But the Science is not ‘defined’ by the money (or the source of).
