    • It is possibly not a natural progression; I’d like to think of it as an ongoing struggle, the ongoing fight to either confirm or falsify a theory. In addition, it needs corresponding characters to do so. The perhaps most interesting “fight” might have been that between Einstein and Bohr about quantum physics, where Einstein agreed in principle, but thought the theory was incomplete. The struggle can only continue with enough scientific education and some experience – and that, in my view, is a looming danger.
