Some unpublished thoughts

Truth – (mixture of terms) it is not a single character, but actually combines absolute completeness, absolute universality and absolute preciseness, which do not exist.

Objective of Science – Logical internally flawless models that describe reality as universally and precisely as possible.

Measure of quality of scientific theories is not truth but preciseness and universality.

Intelligence – system capable of formulating original questions and finding answers to them.

Intelligent—complex thinking with minor flaws; fool- simple thinking with major flaws.
