The term Science is often used to convey an idea which suggests it is verifiable or true, but what is a truth? What is a truth vs the truth, what is theory vs observation? These are the essential questions every human being will face in their lives, to understand the difference between a popular belief, and an verified description of reality.
A truth is an analog, a model or representation of an observed event. For example, “the sky is clear” is a statement, when heard by a mind, can be decoded to create an image representative of the observed event; a clear sky. The Truth, on the other hand, is the objective reality. The difference seems trivial, but it is absolutely essential to understand for developing clear perception of reality. It is the difference between Objective Reality and our Subjective Experience of it, and in our modern world, subjective theories (the analog or model which someone creates to represent reality) are offered as observations of reality itself; a serious logical error. Just because a theory seems to fit observation, does not mean it is an accurate reflection of reality (The Truth), and this crucial distinction is missed by most of the greatest minds of our age. What we imagine, the ideas we hold to be true, are only ever reflections in our minds. A photograph of a sunrise is not the real thing, and never will be, but it does represent the event; it is a symbol.

If we took a poll of a population of people, asking them about modern day theories of the universe: The Standard Model, Quantum Physics, General Relativity, etc. How many people would be able to differentiate between theory and reality? Odds are most people have no process for understanding the difference. And society at large offers up theories as facts, enticing us to ‘not bother doing our homework and just accept what the experts tell us is truth.’ All of the aforementioned successes of modern day physics are theories masquerading as 100% fact; but are not completely verified or accurate. If one was to dig into these doctrines with a critical eye, staggering number of inaccuracies and errors will be discovered.
Dewey B Larson was an engineer during the early part of the 20th century, at a time when many conflicting theories of the Universe were beginning to gain popularity. Despite being labeled an outcast for questioning Scientific Dogma he, and his team, investigated the whole of Physical Science over a 40 year period. Discovering that there were many inaccurate assumptions plaguing modern science. This had the effect of preventing a true and accurate theory being developed to explain the Universe as a whole, which Larson and his team did; Reciprocal Systems Theory.
The below article is one point, in a tapestry of data points, supporting the notion that science has lost its way. Thankfully, the truth – reality – can be known, and all that one needs to do is begin the process of discovering it for themselves. Growing the eyes to see reality and to know the difference between theory vs observation.
What We Know Is Often Just Theory
