Science and scientific knowledge can be compared to the wheel
Science and scientific knowledge can be compared to the wheel – one of those inventions that, despite its simplicity, changed the world. Without science, as without the wheel, there would be no world we are used to. Without the wheel, movement is impossible, and without science, the development of civilization is impossible. Archimedes exclaimed: “Give me a fulcrum and I will turn the Earth over!”, so science is always looking for and finding new fulcrum that «turn the world over”. The world is now facing a moment, when these fulcrum are extremely urgent and important.
