The Burden of Science

Human being discovered how to fragment atom using the idea of mathematical division.   They used fragmentation or reductionist approach for building atom bomb.  An atom bomb can do nothing apart from destruction.  The Hiroshima attack and nuclear tests that were conducted again and again have resulted in colossal environmental damages on Earth.  These acts were carried out by a handful of people but all seven billion of human population has been left suffering. 

The reductionist approach is destructive.  It uses the process of successive mathematical division, each time reducing the quantity of matter, taking it to the stage when quantity of matter becomes negligible, and even atom – which is basic building block of nature - is also broken up.  

All of existence together makes for its eternal presence but the reductionist approach doesn’t see this presence of existence at all.  Entire scientific narrative is based on this reductionist mathematical approach – which makes it nothing but a bundle of lies.  Human being will need to muster self confidence to discard this burden of Science.  As long as human being bases their confidence on atom bombs, swords, nationalistic symbols or religious symbols we cannot have trust among human beings.
