The right kind of experience, the right kind of technical training, ought to enlarge the mind..

I refuse to recognize that there are impossibilities. I cannot discover that any one knows enough about anything on this earth definitely to say what is and what is not possible.

The right kind of experience, the right kind of technical training, ought to enlarge the mind and reduce the number of impossibilities.

It unfortunately does nothing of the kind. Most technical training and the average of that which we call experience, provide a record of previous failures and, instead of these failures being taken for what they are worth, they are taken as absolute bars to progress.

...For certain scientists, research on water should go farther than problems about pollution.  Documentary by Frantz Fitzke (Germany 2001 - 41mn) ZDF. Water which, in ancient civilizations and religions, was capable of miracles, has now become a trivial resource. Worse, science and technique do not consider its globality anymore, but only it's formula H2O. Some researchers have nevertheless launched original works, like Viktor Schauberger, considered as the father of modern research in this matter. He notably developed a theory along which water does not flow in straight lines, but in whirlpools, un a movement that ressembles that of a corkscrew. His revolutionary ideas inspired real applications. His students are for example working on new types of conducts, more reliable analysis processes, and better recycling systems. He is today followed and supported in his unorthodox methods by academics finally convinced than water is more than <gets cut>more than a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen. ..."
