A scientific mind is one that can make the most of observation.
It has highly-refined imagination and curiosity that makes it possible to carry forward advanced research work. And also it's a bit sceptical about its own work as well as of others, enhancing the accuracy in outcomes.
Also, this is a blend of mind can be developed by anyone. Its not totally related to science or one who studies.
So, with evolution and advancing time, is it possible that the scientific mind also has advanced its level of effective observation?
Here are few benefits that I think can be associated with scientific mind:
Its capability to deal with its emotions and working with it, without biasing the results or observations.
A scientific mind can preserve serenity and avoid bias in other arenas in addition to the material world, such as politics and government.
My bigger question is, considering the benefit of the scientific mind, is it possible that it carries some detrimental side effects on society?
