    Link: Scientists And Us: The Big Difference - This is how we see the world and this is how scientists see the world. Yeah, there`s a bit of a difference...

    Some, sure, but some of us can separate aesthetic beauty from the physical and chemical mathematical beauty of our universe and even appreciate both! :-)

    hmmm i see the exchange of gases through the rabbit (O2 taken in, CO2 released), and photosynthesis. I think that`s pretty good :)

    SO basically Neo looking at the code of the Matrix?
    I dunno...
    Personal experience of these types of people, tell me that they`d likely not see the bunny and would be so absorbed in thought they would trip over it and might fall in the river.

    My bf has to be saved constantly from traffic, curbs, etc when we`re out walking and he`s thinking/talking about something "deep".

    I don`t look at the sun and think about force due to gravitational pull. But this is totally right.

    And a1butcher, you don`t see in color. Your eyes and brain interpret different wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation.

    @Almightybob:
    That isn`t scientific, That`s the definition of insanity; Repetition with the expectation of different results.
    A scientist would wonder why he got zapped when pulling the lever instead of pulling it again.
    Funny pic though...

    @monsterzero, That`s not necessarily true. How would he know that unless he tried it again? There are all kinds of experiments with the same experimental design that produced different results.

    That`s kinda true...I am not a scientist, but I have a lot of strange knowledge and formulaic thinking. It kind of sucks. It took all the fun out of life. Being stupid was better.

    I sometimes get stuck thinking like this...it`s not all the time, but when I go into "hard determinist" mode, it depresses me to no end. It literally makes everything seem heartless. Sometimes I hate science. :-(

    yeah!, science rocks, as Feynman said:
    "yes I can appreciate the beauty of a flower, maybe not as refined as an artist would, but I can see a flower and think it`s pretty. And at the same time, I can see the beauty of what makes the flower, and that`s something only scientists have"

    Bitchin, hell yeah!

    I love how science is supposed to be based on proving theories based on careful observation but when there`s something they can`t explain, they just make up some BS and expect everyone to believe it... then, when you disagree YOU are the one that`s stupid... I hate you, dark matter.
