Desperately Seeking Simplified Theories

The following excerpts are from ‘Physics’ (“Notes on the Scientific method”) by Oscar M. Stewart (published by Ginn and Co., New York, N.Y., 1924, 1931, 1939, 1944). This insight seems to be lost on too many of the medical researchers in the field today.

“One should never accept a statement of facts unless he feels confident thatit is in agreement with experiment.”

“The habit of trying to explain things in terms of general principles is one of the most important attitudes of a good scientist.”

“… [T]he number of fundamental concepts and fundamental principles is small. This assumption is sometimes called the ‘law of parsimony’…”

“Any attempt to find a general law is an attempt to reduce the number of laws.”

What this means from a Life-Systems Engineering Science perspective, is that the SIMPLEST explanation is most likely to be right.

Now, think about this:

If a risk factor cannot be attributed to the majority of cases of a certain disease, then that factor is not the primary cause of the disease.

Let’s look at current cancer theories.

Most are too complicated and they do not fit this requirement. A risk factor may be a contributing actor to the disease or merely a concidental factor termend an “association”. In my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”, I talk about how the current “risk factors”, “associated factors”, and theories linking cholestoerol, saturated fat and heart disease do NOT fit this requirement, either.

Unnecessary complication is NNOT required to find answers in science.

Dr. Warburg knew this a long long time ago.

So why don’t the researchers of today know this?

That is a mystery…
