1. Is curiosity alone enough to give meaning and purpose to science? (then why does every text book emphasize on the benefits of science in the form of its application to improve our daily life rather than its act of providing satisfaction to a sense of restless curiosity?)

2.Will a 'good (true) scientist' choose a phenomenon to study which has seemingly no application but serves to improve his understanding of it and satisfies his curiosity?

I think my last post hasnot been answered completely. I feel something is missing. May be there is something more about it.

Obliged.

Yasir.
