“The many uses of science.”
Science! Science! Science!
Science is such an ambiguous term, but it is the entire systematic testing through the use of explanations and predictions to figure out our universe. Now what in the world does that mean; simply put we aim at trying to figure out the world around us by making assumptions over time to get to an explanation about our past, present, and even the future. And if that still doesn’t make sense, in the hopes of trying to figure out how we came to be as humans, one way is to align ourselves with a like species. Then from that, try to figure out commonality further before moving to more complex theories.
There are so many different branches of science in society. And for the most part, we separate the sciences we study into three major groups: Natural, Formal, and Social.
- This is the studying of a more natural phenomenon that exist in our universe: cosmic, geo, bio, and chemical. This may very well be the most complex because of the vastness of the subject. Especially once you get into areas like cosmic, in dealing with outside of Earth. You could live on Earth 100 years of your life studying this field and not even learn so much as 1% of the universe’s potential.
- This area of study deals with using the mathematics as a more logical means of figuring out problems. We are now dealing with the building of an infrastructure through various means of engineering methods. And since the human brain has had to evolve for so long over time, we have used the most simplistic forms of logic to figure out building. We have 10 fingers and 10 toes. We could easily could have 100, why 10 because it is a more simplified number. Evolution is moving from what is simple to complex. So a classification of 10 is easier than 100.
- And last group would have to be the social sciences of the world. This is how humans interact with each other in building and maintaining of a civilization. That is not be confused with the previous formal sciences of logic alone. But there are a variety of logic that goes into our social. Meaning we build and maintain societies on the basis of what’s good for the masses through our own logic and reasoning. But it’s not a mathematical logic decision, it’s more emotional; a feel and observation. So we have laws that say you can go to prison for murder because without these laws to keep people in check, the rate would be higher for murder. Prison isn’t a full proof method, but a pretty good deterrent from breaking laws.
Into the Future
Now, the question is always, “What will we discover next that falls into the three main groups of science?” Will we find a new mineral in the future that aids in our survival. Or will we find a means of traveling through space. The more complex our models become in science, the more we discover, the more we want to explore.

“Are you really ready for the end?”
For the longest, people have tried to find methods of coping with the idea that we as people will eventually meet our demise. No one, no matter how long you live, is ready for the time when they will die. We all love existing and hate even thinking about a world where we don’t exist. So for thousands of years we have sought to try to understand something. Anything that will point us in a direction leading to our end. Religion has its viewpoint and science has its viewpoint. But even with both views, all of us walk away with the same feeling. We either fear dying and/for we don’t want to die.
Well why, why do we fear the end of our lives. None of the past frightens us, yet we are totally afraid of all the future. Me my self, I was not afraid of the year 1920 so why am I afraid of the year 2120. I won’t be around which creeps me out. But what will happen once we leave this Earth. Is there a collection of energy that goes somewhere, or do we past and that is it? Do we ascend to heaven as the bible speaks about, or do we disintegrate to nothingness? The idea of this being the end for so many people is scary. But how do we cope with the idea of an ending. Let’s look at a few ways people cope with themselves passing away.
The bible is written about us ending and going to heaven. Once we die in this world, we pass along into another. The Christian text calls it the land of milk and honey. In the Lord’s house there are many mansions. This sounds great if you’re a person of the Christian faith. Furthermore, if you belong to any other group, they have their own beliefs regarding the end of life. Yet there are the skeptics. These are the people who come into the loop and present to the world their alternative facts. To them they have a more scientific means of explaining the end of ones’ life.
The science community aims at looking at humans as a carbon based life form that will come to an end as well. Unlike the religious community, science theorizes that nothing supernatural happens as the body dies. Carbon is released from our bodies like any other dead organism back into the atmosphere just as with plants and animals. This is of benefit to us and any other plant and animal life on Earth. So, to them, this is it, so make the best of it. Because when the lights go out, they’re out for good. Anything other than that is seen as nonsense and should be viewed as such.
In the end, what will it take to get people to cope? Will there ever come a time when people can cope with their end? Or will we forever be locked in our emotions about what happens after we die on this Earth? There is one thing that people everywhere can agree upon. Is that this body we call ours will not be here forever. And I don’t mean just me in the moment. I mean the Earth as we know it has an expiration date. Eventually the universe will reach maximum growth before it ends itself. And that’s life, everything has a beginning and an end. How all of ours will turn out is unknown. So for now, we live. Go to sleep and wake up, until the day comes where those eyes won’t open again.
