While I am taking a walk I have come up with quotes, questions and philosophy to motivate and route myself.
I recently discovered/invented a new quote which really can have multiple meaning to it (from something very stupid to something very genuine) - but it obviously would depend upon the person interpreting it.
So, here it goes. I made a hypothesis as,”Some people fart during solar eclipse, and there is a genetic basis to it”.
And yes, this hypothesis is pre-hoc, testable (from different facets), refutable and there probably will be a associated genetic basis with this natural phenomenon (solar eclipse).
So, How would you interpret this question/hypothesis?, before you read the details below.
Now, tell me how would you interpret (or interpreted) this hypothesis, statement.
- Could it be one of the great scientific question ever?
- What is the significance of it?
- What if this question seems as stupid as, “Why did the apple fall to the ground rather than flying up?” But really has a deep meaning to it, because sometime in future we realize that world is getting doomed during a solar eclipse and the people who have that genetic basis really seemed to survive the catastrophy, and there by leading civilization really to next great height.
- What if there is no causal genetic basis, but it was just an association because in large sample we will always find an association of one event with another.
- But, what if there was a causal genetic basis hitchhiking along with the genes causing the fart making it lucky for those individuals to survive.
- Or, is it just a plain, simple and stupid question that human will never pursue, no matter how much prosperous our civilization gets.
- Or, is this a question that belongs to the categories of problem that does matter but the problem is insignificant in comparison; like ,”BPA in plastic causes harm. But, why do you really worry so much about the BPA in your plastic plate when you eat, coz you smoke tons a day?”
- Or, is it just a practice of wasting money in science.
What is a stupid question and what is great scientific question? What does my hypothesis suggest you - is it a great question, and why? Or, am I plain stupidly a deep thinker (or even not). Hmmm !
I will post my own interpretations later on.
Thanks for reading !
