Science as Fantasy Soience of Life (c) SIG, the Foundation for advancement of  Integral Health Care

Scientist tend to like it when their work is called “fantastic!”.
But they tend to have great dislike when it called “a fantasy”.
“Fantast” is even considered to be a very derogatory term, for them.
Yet it must be made clear here, that science is the work of fantasy.

Scientist often claim that ‘their’s, is a work of rigour, and astute logic’.
Yet it is evident that this applies only to Established Science; ‘after the event’.
Science itself is fundamentally as unscientific as any exploration, or adventure.
It is “the quest for the unknown”; for which ‘the known’ is of no avail.

Science is NOT the inventory of what we (collectively) already know.
Quite the contrary: science is the skill of learning; “getting to know”.
Scientists are like hunters: they need skill to capture the evasive.
That what they seek to catch, to capture, is our own ignorance (a.k.a. ‘fear’).

Knowledge, just as Ignorance (and thus, fear) is a state of mind, and memories.
The art of science involves the skill of changing our own way of thinking.
It is the ability to mobilise memories, and to immobilise ideas (to form thoughts).
It is the direct art of the act of interacting with, and creation of, ideas.

The creation of ideas takes place via the ‘metabolic’ mental process of Fantasy.
Fantasising is akin to the rumination of the cow, (re)chewing its cud.
It is a process of partial regurgitation, commonly known as remembering.
Combined with the on-going process of chewing and digesting: “rumination”.

“Fantasy” is the mental equivalent of the “Fairy-Tale” quest of adventure.
That again is the social mental equivalent to travelling to foreign countries.
Which again in itself is based on the dynamic of animal territorial migration.
Thinking, and fantasy, is the act and art of resetting the boundaries on our Self.

The principle of self-redefinition operates in the singularities of the system boundary.
Cell-division, metabolism, learning and immunity are all part of that definition.
It is the redefinition of the system boundary which determines our existence-in-context.
Parallel to our physiological dynamic we have the corresponding mental dynamic.

Fantasy makes use of our animal ability to memorise/remember our territory.
Animals can remember and revisit territories that they have visited before.
Like plants, they can memorise/remember that territory in different seasons.
Conscious animals can not only remember the past but also project in the future.

Future-projection is the process of ‘testing’ various alternatives for the future.
It is the equivalent-counterpart of remembering different variations of the past.
“Projection” is the art of visualising/remembering events of the past in the present.
Because it does not (yet) exist in the perceived present, it is called future projection.

The principle of Future Projection is the same as that of Perceiving the Present.
Present Perception is the activity which is the basis for memorising the past.
What we memorise is never the past, but always the (actual lived) present.
What we remember is a sensory perception stored within our body (of knowledge).

Science is the body of knowledge of humanity (composed of different humans).
Science is the social activity of scientists (combining their bodies of knowledge).
The act and art of discovery of science is based on the exploration of scientists.
The art and act of discovery of new ideas by scientists is what is called “fantasy”.

The core of the work of Albert Einstein was the “Gedankenexperiment”.
His ideas, elemental mental conceptions, were mathematical formulations.
They are ideas, on/of abstract nature, which we entertain/maintain in our Mind.
The formulation of those ideas helps in their communication to (and use by) others.

    Was Jules Verne a dreamer, visionary or scientist?
    Once the technology was perfected, his models were built; later.
    In his books he described what was already known, in broadened interpretation.
    By using “anonimysation, generalisation, abstraction and decontextualisation”.

To anonimyse, generalise, abstract and decontextualise is the essence of science.
It negates the concrete real specific existence and replaces it by its concept (‘fantasy’).
It deduces/reduces, the form of the manifestation to its forming/manifestation (verb).
It replaces the object or thing, by thinking; the art and act of realisation (verb).

This means that for every scientific physical process there is a mental equivalent.
Science is NOT the art and act of measuring physical phenomenal in nature; “reality”.
Science IS the act and art of understanding the underlying mental process of realisation.
For every measurement result that is recorded, the measuring act was first imagined.

Fantasy is the mental rumination of possible probable potential future realisations.
It is based on the intrinsic capacity for realisation; not as a noun but as a verb.
It retraces the form (noun) or manifestation (noun) back to its manifestation (verb).
It, literally, replaces uninvolved reality (noun) by involvement in realisation (verb).

This makes Fantasy one of the most important techniques that are used in science.
It requires accurate memory, thus memorisation, of the past; thus in the present.
It requires accurate and reliable data processing: perception, memorisation, remembering.
These techniques are however NOT explicitly taught, thus not learned, in ‘science’.

As a result many scientists neglect, ignore or even deny the dynamic of their involvement.
Many tests have already shown that their intent determines the ‘measured’ outcome.
Quantum theory even formulates explicitly that our involvement determines the outcome.
Yet scientists still choose to teach/learn/believe that their involvement does not matter.

The result is that the scientists, as science, are destroying (life on) the Earth.
Their belief (!) in the existence of reality is wrong; and merely a superstition.
What is needed, instead, is the effect of their own interference/involvement.
It is necessary to understand how their mental processes determine their realisations.

We here need to understand realisation, literally, in the sense of ‘making real’.
This means that we need to look not at the measurement but at the measuring.
Not the created measuring machine determines the outcome, but its design.
In its design the machine reflects its creation/creator; not in is form but in its intent.

We always need to understand how we create (and maintain) our own/joint intent.
We need to investigate and explore the mental process of information organisation.
We need to see that our physical body is not a (data) object but a data processor.
In our body we see that it is formed by, and a form of, information in formation.

The art and act of science lies in our participation in creation of/as information.
We need to understand how we always memorise and project our perceptions.
Fantasy is the word to describe the exploration of new information creation.
The new insight which that creates leads to new experience, for new realisations (noun).

Many scientists think that science is determined by, limited to, “the known”.
Some scientists realise that science is in fact the activity of “getting to know”.
Neuroscientists try to find out how we are able to create “new knowing” (verb).
Mystics traditionally realised that it is all based on knowing (verb) knowing (noun).

Science is NOT based on what we know but in what we CAN know, together.
This is NOT based on the quantitative measurement of material ‘objects’.
It is based on the qualitative values of the relationship of human ‘subjects’.
Reality is always, only, based on our realisation (verb) of our realisation (noun).

Real science (i.e.: scientific progress) always comes from new ideas/realisations.
New insight never comes from the imposition of old ideas in new context.
Science is never about equating the formulae to our realisation (experience).
Science is always about equating our realisation (verb) to on-going creation (verb).

Science requires the understanding/application of our creating of understanding.
The act of designing the measuring device in our mind follows its mental creation.
Just as a machinist needs to calibrate his tools, we must also calibrate our mind.
Scientists must learn to understand the importance of Fantasy; and learn to use it.

Was Leonardo da Vinci an artist, scientist or polymath? He certainly was imaginative.
He already designed helicopters, although there were in his time no usable engines.
Was his idea a fantasy, a concept, mental model (gedankenexperiment) or a realisation?
Are the visions of the visionaries unrealistic, if later they are actually, really, built?

Many people ignore that science is NOT about rigour and irrefutable proof.
Science is NOT about mechanical repeatability of experiment results.
Instead, science is about getting to know the unknown; “a Quest”.
It is NOT about proving the predictability of matter, but improving flexibility of understanding.

Science does NOT simply contemplate ‘the unknown’, nor fence it off behind Taboos.
Scientists implicitly realise that if ‘it’ exist, it must be part of the universe: universal.
Even if only one instance of it momentarily exists, it has/displays universal properties.
What is required is the imagination to see how the ‘impossible’, can exist: “Fantasy”.

Scientists operate a different mind-set than that of religious dogmatic acceptance.
This takes place in different brain parts, than that of religious experience.
It is also in a different brain area than day-to-day life/survival pragmatism.
That also means that different organ activations patterns are involved therein.

Our mental processes (as human) are based on organic (animal) processes.
The animal organic dynamics are based on vegetative organic dynamics.
The existence of human being is based on animal-, vegetative-, cellular being.
Each level of development of biology, is also a development of logic, and mind.

That is why we can correlate, ‘equate’, mental processes to organ processes.
The so-called Indian ‘Deities’ are in fact the mental/emotional organ functions.
As mental/physiological principles (‘deities’) they regulate/determine our realisations.
The classical texts on the wars between gods, are in fact treatises on elemental; mental conflicts.

In science, it is well time that scientists realise that reality is in fact a realisation.
Scientist must account for (as quantum theory states) the fact that they create facts.
Scientist can no longer pretend that they are uninvolved: their involvement matters.
Scientists must be(come) aware that the reality create starts as their Fantasy: or Fear.
