Synergic Science is “Real Science”

were aeronautical scientists and they had to understand aeronautical
science to invent the Aeroplane. However, one doesn’t have to be an
aeronautical scientist to ride in an airplane, or for that matter even
to fly one.
UnCommon Sense
is based on the synergic sciences. I have devoted many years of study
to the synergic sciences, but this book is not written for me. Most
humans living today are not scientists and it is not necessary for them
to understand science in order to benefit from it. Nor do they need to
be synergic scientists in order to act synergically. … I entered
medical school in 1966. In my first week I would learn one of the most
valuable lessons of my life. A fellow classmate and I were in the
medical library at our school. We had been reading some science papers
assigned in an earlier class, when I noticed he was reading one paper,
that I didn’t have listed on my assignment sheet. He seemed much more
interested in that paper than in those from our assignment sheet. My
classmate would read a paragraph or two and then hurry off to the big
medical dictionary across the room. He made so many trips, I surmised
the reading must be very difficult. Finally ,my curiosity got the
better of me, and I also was beginning to worry that I might have
missed getting the assignment to read that particular paper, so I
queried him. First he responded by saying, “No, its not part of our
assignment, I’m just reading this for myself. The author is a Nobel
laureate.” He started to return to his reading, but then he paused for
a moment to look me over and for some reason he decided to share his
secret with me. “Its something more than that. It is a secret way to
learn that my Father taught me.” I leaned closer and he continued.
“When you read and understand the work of a world’s leading expert, you
can become the world’s second leading expert.” At first I didn’t know
what to say. The thought was so foreign to me. I said nothing and
returned to my study of the assigned readings. Later that evening after
class, my mind kept coming back to what my classmate had said, “When
you read and understand the work of a world’s leading expert, you can
become the world’s second leading expert.” … I have filled UnCommon Sense
with the understanding and wisdom of many of the world’s leading
experts. Please make their expert knowledge your own. Please invest a
few hours in learning the language and methods of the experts and
bootstrap yourself to a more powerful and positive future. (12/20/04)
