    Awesome article. I'd like to see follow-ups on this research with concrete strategies on how to make these ideas a reality.

    I think politics also play a role in all this. Not just in the acdemic community, but also in relation to the sponsors of the research being done. If we take that factor into account too and find ways to not let add more biases, science could experience a rennaissance.

    #15 @Milos Djukic remember the story of the physicists whose manifesto against WWI ..allowed for continued collaboration...and later Einstein's cautionary letter to Franklin Roosevelt...some live their lives with a trained disciplinary perspective: "We never know what the future holds."

    I have a different take: "We never know how the past will turn out."

    #7 @Phil Friedman, "Physics and Beyond: Encounters and Conversations"
    by Werner Heisenberg is a great book about the process of shaping of scientific truth without the trace of "endorsing the empty claims of posers who pretend to have special direct access to".

    #8 I agree, Milos. Science may not be the only path to truth, but if one is going to follow the path of science, one needs to follow the rules of the road. Otherwise, one will end up in the ditch. (See, on social media, we are very big on metaphors! :-) )

    #7 You are welcome @Phil Friedman Scientific research is a serious job that requires serious knowledge. This is not a game. The shaping of scientific truth is a process which can not take place at social media, but in research labs and research centers. Pseudoscience in is very dangerous for those who are naive.
    Phil Friedman
    17/01/2017 #7 Phil Friedman
    #6 Thank you for the citation, Milos. I will read in detail and respond as appropriate. In the meantime, I caution others not to think that, because some scientists acknowledge that science is not "truth" but rather a process by which we seek to find truth, such scientists are thereby endorsing the empty claims of posers who pretend to have special direct access to, and be the sole conduits to such universal truth. For the scientists who are looking to improve the standards for doing and conveying scientific inquiry are not anti-science and are saying nothing of the sort. Cheers!

    #4 @Franci๐ŸEugenia Hoffman, The shaping of scientific truth is a process. I started online Project on ResearchGate (part of NoE in Hydrogen Embrittlement) in 2016 (80+ members, 220+ followers, 2800+ reads, 40+ updates) as an extension of the former Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanism Project on ResearchGate (2014) which was very successful and with an idea that the top experts in the field of hydrogen embrittlement and materials science come together and share valuable experiences about the current state of the art in hydrogen embrittlement. Numerous prestigious experts in the field of hydrogen embrittlement and materials science are the project participants. This Project is a part of "The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement" that aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of hydrogen degradation of engineering materials and their co-evolution with science, materials science, industry and society, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European and Worldwide research in this area. The benefits of this network are available to all interested researchers, scientists, professionals and practitioners.

    Impressive share, @Milos Djukic. "Team science: A key problem is โ€œscientists working competitively in silos without combining their efforts.โ€ Collaborating with other groups means different ideas, different experiences, and different perspectives all come into play, reducing the risk of bias."
    is an interesting statement giving me the impression scientific studies are not just the opinions of a few.

    #12 Here is something just to add dear David...here is a link to an old story from our mythology about a sage Narada...notorious for stirring up passions and inciting quarrels among deities and men with good intentions ;)...do go thru it time permitting...oh and yes, please overlook the poor translation in places and the religious calls to action...the story - the tip of an iceberg of enquiry- is more important. Surrender could be to any genuine belief system or ideology or higher power and not necessarily to some of the indigo hued Gods of the Hindu pantheon. :) http://www.bhagavatam-katha.com/narada-muni-story-power-of-maya/

    #12 yes David, I have recently read some of that stuff too. Supercomps will probably overtake the human brain in storage capacity and speed of calculation, multitasking and monitoring, even miming most human interactions and responses. But without the heart element and the element of will, their thoughts will never become things;) Ingenuity would be beyond them...everything would have to be preprogrammed - from response to analysis - unless of course we build robocop kinda robs and succeed finally at creating a real man-machine bio-mech interface that breathes. Even then the maya matrix would sustain itself.

    The label, " matrix" over simplifies the truth and infers artificiality. Reality, though barely tangible on an atomic level is a physical manifestation of a compelling force and shows signs of intelligent design that rules out chance. Our reality is shaped by complex magnetic fields but this renders it no less tangible. It is all about potentialities and energy bound by forces we are just beginning to comprehend.

The world of Maya (Illusion) generated by our mind and perpetuated by our emotions and senses...and thoughts becoming things among other things, as indicated by some ancient texts, is nothing new to a large part of humanity.
