When we compare ourselves.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the fourth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
I live in Canada, more precisely, in Quebec. If I compare myself to Australia, the climate here is much colder, both in duration and temperature. The type of wood will therefore be different. This simple but important difference brings a crucial element in the application of knowledge. You could name a multitude of cases where knowledge, from our point of view on a human scale, is not applied in the same way.
Science aims to manage this situation. It seeks to find the lowest common denominator of applicability of a concept that will later be named as “generic”. It circumvents this situation by adding parameters to formulas so that a formula can be applicable in all situations. I dare not venture into unknown territory, but if any of you would like to leave examples in the comments, please feel free to do so. Perhaps we could name examples of speed, gravity, hardness, temperature, pressure, etc., which could be used in the formula.
The fact remains that concepts of survival, without access to technology, can be difficult to apply depending on the context. In the next few posts, we will explore different scenarios and attempt to briefly analyze them.
To be continued…
