This is a really good book, and I highly recommend it.

Science is a conversation with nature, where we have to ask, then listen very carefully to the replies.

30 second sound bite is generous, more like 5-7 these days.

I read this somewhere around 2005, and something that stuck with me is that he said to pay attention to the advertisements in the things you read. Those advertising in said things are very likely to interest you, algorithms in early stages so to speak. He was essentially saying that hey, those selling something have figured you out, and by reading "xyz" you must be interested in "abc." Heavy paraphrasing on my part... his work has stayed with me a long time.

It is sad that he contributed to the dumbing down himself with Scientism.

Just came over to SaidIt from VOAT. We need to understand that the MSM is a willing partner to the evil cabal. Sedition, treason and evilness in order to regain power and continue their pursuit of the NWO.
