‘Real science’, it is said, should be based on what science considers credible.
This is one of the ‘Rules of Science’, and is necessary if we are to quantify understanding.

On hearing of this ‘science’ the philosopher felt a need to quietly say:

“Numbers are symbols, as are letters: both are necessary in developing wider understanding, but neither are sufficient nor able [alone or combined] to translate experience in its entirety.  Particularly when considering the science of the Mind, we must remember that much of  what is claimed to be ‘objective’, or ‘real science’, is actually based on a symbolic reduction of subjective experience”
