Rams Of Math Cosmo Life...Who Says What Science Means?

Dr. Stafford's "The Foundations of Physical ..."
have many interesting issues, but they don't
dictate on matters of conscience or politics.
The only philosophical implications I can detect
at this time are:
1) Unless you can do advanced math, there are some matters you cannot discuss in detail.
2) Even if you cannot do advanced math, you can still determine the meaning of life for yourself.
3) Human beings still have a lot to learn about
about Time, Relativity, and Physics.

Scientists who think nonmathematicians are unqualified to discuss the ramifications of
science
should at least plan to duplicate the knowledge
of those whose advice they disdain
before attempting to tell what science means.

Scientists lack knowledge of some things,
including subjective cultural information.
We should not presume to discard seemingly unscientific culture without knowing its contents.

Are you there, Dr. Dick?
I have not been to see the math department
and am not meeting the expectations of a few other
persons either. But I never meant to be so dilatory.
Mike
