A Sharif Posted about 2 months ago Will science ever tell us everything there is to know? I agree with the point you are making; theoretically speaking, we do need an end or at least a less hasty progress at the moment, at least in some fields other then medicine. But in reality, it's not gonna happen. We can consider science for public use, and science for the sake of science. I believe in none of the senses the hasty rush to reach more, and to find out more, and to discover more is gonna come to an end or even slower down; I see it as an accelerating movement with an increasing acceleration. Stephen Hawking has a short article on a similar topic, which I find very helpful.
