Arthur Schopenhauer: Every truth passes through three stages

Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed. In the second, it is opposed. In the third, it is regarded as self evident."

What is Science about, if not for the endless searching of truth, its better explanation, and application in human activities? Once discovered, the world of cognition always propels us to explore the limits of our own consciousness and the universe surrounding us. The so-called subject is dancing with objectivity and vice versa, in a perpetual ignition of events radiating meaningful experience. Looking forward, the scientific mind is bound to walk one step ahead of what was already achieved. It is somewhat the modern form of the ancient Greek oracle or the prophets from the Bible. Science is constructing the future and that is the best way to predict it. A method constantly adapting to human society, which is ceaselessly reshaped by scientific and technological development. We, literally, can't imagine our civilization without scientific progress. However, often enough, we are erecting walls instead of building bridges between the "old" and the "new" vision, paradigm, or truth about the nature of both psychological and material phenomena. We could watch how our planet is suffering from an unprecedented ecological crisis provoked by us but keep on walking the same way. History remembers that it was never easy to revolutionize the long-ago established truths in all spheres of human activities. The innate forces of conservativity and creativity are playing antagonistic roles in the existential theater of society. Nevertheless, the spirit of science and understanding is always going further, demonstrating that it has the inevitable feature to overcome personal opinion, collective stagnation, and dogmas in favor of experimentation, observation, provable evidence, and results.
