Science v's Fiction

Science's ONLY purpose is to make its reality appear real
.. and for this purpose it finds better and better formulas and numbers
to make it appear more and more real
until it appears rock-solid and certain.

Language's ONLY purpose is to make its words, Fiction, appear real
.. and for this purpose it finds better and better words and phrases,
even numbers and formulas,
to make this Fiction appear more and more real
until it appears so rock solid and certain
that it must be really, Really, REALLY real.

put the SAME purpose of science and language together
and you have a Universe of which at least 99% MUST BE missing,
and then some,
the more of the Universe is missing
the better this missing Universe
can make what is not missing ( <1%)
appear really, Really, REALLY real.

=-=

(if there was something “real” about this <1% Visible Universe
then science would be revealing more and more of the missing 99%
but instead
the more science makes its reality appear real
the more it increases this 99% missing-universe towards the 100%.)

-- really, Really, REALLY.

Balance and points of view

This is a somewhat one-sided analysis that stems from a radical point of view and therefore fails to convince. If you were able to give up the temptation to use extremism (like the ONLYs), it would have sounded more balanced and reliable.

"Science's ONLY purpose is to make its reality appear real"

What about its purpose (and success) to prolong life expectancy? What about its purpose to ease physical pains and suffering? etc.

"Language's ONLY purpose is to make its words, Fiction, appear real"

No, the main purpose of language is to enable communication. What you mention is only a side effect.

side-effects

Hi mika: you validate the words "Science's ONLY purpose is to make its reality appear real"
YES that appearance of reality even includes “ prolong life expectancy? ... and its purpose to ease physical pains and suffering? etc.”

as for your communication:

“telepathy makes us One
that words multiply into many.”

-- O'no

your communication is all about the words that MULTIPLY One into many.

--really
