Notable Quote: The Edges of Science

Note from Jan: This is a fabulous and fascinating book!

...long before normal science gets disrupted, we're likely to find, on the edges of normal science, a coterie of scientists who have happened across some observation that won't fit, and it nags at them. Their work becomes increasingly concerned with making it make sense. They develop experimental programs. They establish labs and accumulate research. Meanwhile, normal science proceeds as usual, barely noticing what's piling up at the edges.

~ Elizabeth Lloyd Mayer, Ph.D., from Extraordinary Knowing: Science, Skepticism, and the Inexplicable Powers of the Human Mind

"We live on the edges of a mystery we cannot see." I think science can take us to that edge, but not beyond. The rest is myth, religion, poetry.

I enjoyed the quotes. I write and collect them myself, so it's always fun to come across one I haven't read before.
