"Great scientific discoveries have been made by men seeking to verify quite erroneous theories about

 

the nature of things."

 

                                                                                                                                                             - Aldous Huxley

 

Science involves a pursuit of knowledge causing general truths as the operations of fundamental laws. Think about a world without technology. No computers, no cars, no vaccines or cures for diseases. Life would be joyless and extremely hard. Science permeates our lives and informs our actions.
