The toppers’ theory

Maths is ultimately based upon logic. Then how can maths make weird predictions that go against logic? How can anything contradict its own basic foundation and still be valid?

If our logic gets affected by our brain’s ‘misinterpretation’ of things that we see and perceive in our universe, why not maths get similarly affected? Why scientists swear upon the counterintuitive maths models over logic?

Should the lay people blindly believe in all the stupid theories put forward by the ‘top’ scientists.

The stupid theory of ‘Toppers’

Occupants on the top floor of a complex multi-storeyed building preach that what people see on ground is not real. They preach that the truth is actually in the sky which they could ‘appreciate’ from very close.

They preach that the actual reality is vastly different from the illusions that people experience on ground. We the unlucky people on the ground who can’t reach to the top floor to experience the truth may be tempted to believe in what the intelligent toppers preach. Only a few of us will dare to question these ‘celebrities’ on the top floor “how could such a complex building stand at all, if what we see on the ground is not real?”.

The toppers argue that people on the ground are not only unlucky but are also ignorant. “How can people who can’t even come to the top floor challenge what we preach? Obviously to experience the truth people will have to come to the top floor. If they can’t, they should just believe in what we the intelligent preach”.

Of course to reach to the top isn’t an easy task. One must please the celebrity professors on the top floor so that they pass a divine rope way for one to ascend, and must continue to listen to what they teach and chant what they preach. If at any time one argues against what the professors preach, one will lose the divine rope and fall to the ground only to get seriously hurt and humiliated. So one must be very careful,  must get tuned to what they preach and nod to them all along. Obviously by the time one ascends and reaches the crowd on the top floor, even a hard core nonbeliever will be made to appreciate the ‘true reality’ over there and will be forced to accept that ‘ground reality’ was an illusion.

If an occasional person, who manages to climb up to the top but still retains the ‘ground logic’, argues against the intelligent clout, this ‘extremist’ will be thrown out of the ‘celebrity stage’ and his cry will never be heard again. Darwin’s law of ‘survival of the fittest in the struggle for existence’ applies at all levels of civilisation. So no one would dare to commit such self destructive blunders of arguing against the ‘intelligent’ crowd unlike Galileo.

This is how scientists are produced in our modern scientific society. So no wonder that stupid theories like relativity and quantum theories survive and dictate science.
