I once asked a doctor for a prognosis and was told, ‘according to all the science you should be dead.’ I guess I’m a walking, talking advert for the power of belief.
You’re probably familiar with science fans screeching that homeopathy is ‘unscientific.’ Now I’m not a user of homeopathic medicine, in fact I’m very sceptical, but after a long career in computer technology I know that the way homeopaths say their therapies work is similar in important ways to the way a computer hard drive stores 100Gbytes of data on a disk that twenty years ago would have only taken 1 Gbyte.
There’s so much about our world that science does no even get close to understanding.
