Binary. Us. Them. No inbetween. You’re either with us or against us (classic bully routine). Not good for a society.

Final note for now – and thanks for inspiring me to write about all of this and being agreeable [although I’m fine with disagreement too tongue emoticon ] is my wish:

I wish for education to be inspired by relativity from the core.

Multiple overlapping perspectives considered and weighed. 

There has been a strong movement to return to 19th century Classical Physics in our culture. One right way. One right answer. One Way Only.

I think it’s a dangerous path. Science is forever changing and new knowledge keeps arriving. Also, there’s more than just Science to be considered. There are many different arena within which truth-values can be discovered. Experiential truth. Philosophical truth. Theological truth. Political truth. Historical truth. Economic truth. So many ways of looking at life.

I believe there are truths to be found in all in some fashion but it’s dangerous to take the simple route. “This is true. This is false” I think we’ve grown past that in our systems and paths that reduce everything to binary truth values can cause only one thing:

War.

Binary. Us. Them. No inbetween. You’re either with us or against us (classic bully routine). Not good for a society.
