The limitation for science

The limitation for science is that is can only model reality, not explain it. The difference is that there are lots of different, but logically compatible, models of reality, in more or less inclusive contexts, that are equally true.

The limitation for science is thus that it can’t reach a single explanation of reality that excludes all other explanations. For example, Newtonian mechanics is logically compatible with both Einsteinian relativity and quantum mechanics, because all three rest on the basic assumption that classes are not real, whereas both particle physics (in the dress of Higgs particleism) and cladism are logically incompatible with all three, because they, on the contrary, rest on the basic assumption that classes are real. And, the empirical fact that time is relative to speed in space falsifies the basic assumption that classes are real and thus also both particle physics (in the dress of Higgs particleism) and cladism.

The basic assumption that classes are real gives the impression that it is possible to explain reality, but this assumption is thus falsified by the empirical fact that time is relative to speed in space. This fact thus tells us the limitation for science.

In spite of this, there will still emerge new Higgs particleists and cladists again and again forever, because opinions emerge independently of knowledge. Knowledge (science), like democracy, is something we have to fight for forever. But, a fight for knowledge (science) does thus also include a fight against what can be called “scientific extremism” (like particle physics (in the dress of Higgs particleism), cladism and racism). This fight is about denying that classes are real.
