By Joseph 




OME of the things—indeed, many of the 
things! — scientists are doing these days 
(to say nothing of their accomplishments 
in the past) may seem like nothing short of 
magic to some folks. But the plain truth of the 
matter is, there nothing "magical" about them, 
speaking in the true sense of the word. 

With very few exceptions, all the things 
that science has done for mankind as far back 
as we have records, have been done by men 

p 

who deliberately set out to accomplish some . 
definite purpose and in so doing have almost ' 
always arrived at this purpose simply through 
following through. with what we might term 
reasoning or logic 

But there is nothing "unusual about these 
thought processes that we all don't go through 
in our minds every single day of the year. To 

■ 

illustrate this point, let's take a very simple 
example 

Suppose your mother comes into the kitchen 
and notices that the cupboard door is wide 
open* Then she sees that the cookie jar is half 
empty. Furthermore, there is the mark of a 
slightly dirty hand left on the edge of the open 
door. What* is her immediate conclusion ? 

"Somebody has opened that door, taken 
some cookies, and left!** she says. But, why 

■ 

does she say this? Because, to begin with, 
there are certain fundamental facts that she 
.knows already to be indisputable/ 

First of all, her mind reasons that cupboard 
doors do not open by themselves. Secondly, 
she knows that — only a few minutes ago— the 
cookie jar was filled and now it isn't. Thirdly, 
there is that tell-tale hand mark left on the 
door. The obvious conclusion, then, is that 
someone opened the door, took out the 
cookies, left an imprint of a hand on the door 
and— since oobody is now within her sight in 

Ike kitchen— they must necessarily hav$ geme 



Somebody might ask here, "But maybe- the 
wind from the open door blew the cupboard : : 
dpor open;&uldnt that be?" And you would 
say:, res, it might.be! But the wind didnt 
take the cookies from the- far !">■ 

■The next question might follow: "But 
couldn't something else besides a human being • 
have taken the cookies?" . 

And the answer, scientifically- but not too 
probably might be: "Yes. Something else 'may 
have removed the cookies, because I didn f t 
actually' see them being removed! However, 
if it were, for example, a monkey which re- 
moved the cookies, why is the imprint; Off a 
human hand on the door? In all our previous 
experiences, we have found that mohkeys do 
not leave human prints! 11 




SO YOU come to the conclusion, if you 
are a mother in search of some missing 
cookies, that someone — a human !-~stole the 
Cookies, Now, this is what scientists' call: 
"forming a hypothesis/' In other words, we 
have a chain of fairly evident facts upon which 
to base our case, 

Suppose, further, that there- is a youngster 
in the. house and that he or she has been 
known to "lift'" a few cookies before. If, in 
tracking down the little: culprit, he is discov- 
ered in the act of munching on some cookies ] 
the logical thing to conclude is that you have 
arrived at the solution to the problem. 

Now let's look at Sir Isaac Newton, who 
watched an apple fall and thereby formed his 
"theory of gravity/* His mind went through 

much the same basic chain of events that the 

.- 

harassed mother's went through.Jtfe reasoned 
that since the apple fell down — and not up! 
— and that since in all man's experiences all 
the apples m the world have always fallen 
down and not u& thea time mau be iomjs* 



cientists ! ' 



•

■ 






thing that . causes this to happen regularly. 
This mysterious force he called gravity and 
formed his since proven theory that "every- 
thing that goes up must come down"! 

Of course, a scientist setting out to prove 
that there are sun-spots on the sun caiised by 
certain whorls of molten metals that are being 
drawn back into the sun, cannot start his chain 
of evidence just by assuming that this is so. He 
must start with a basic hypothesis that these 
whirlpools on the sun are really whirlpools 
and that they are really formed of molten -"■■ 
metals. 

Unless other men before him— or- he him- 
self — have proved that this is so, he had better 
start with some other hypothesis about the sun 

that is even more basic than this. 

However, Samuel Pierpont Langley, the 
great American scientist who died in 1906, did 
arrivff at such a conclusion about the spots on 
the sun. And it was not until years later that 
another scientist , with a modern machine 
(George Ellery Hale and his invention of the. 
spectrohehograph) proved conclusively that 
Langley had been absolutely right! But note 
that there is a difference between coming to a 
conclusion (as Langley did) and of obtaining 
definite proof such as Hale's* 



■ 



"TVT EVERTHELESS, the thought processes of 

«■ * these men were very similar . to the 
thought processes we outlined in the recovery 

i of the missing cookies. The only difference 

being in the intricateness of solving such 

problems as the mysterious sun spots as 

, against the mysterious missing cookies. 

Speaking of Sir Isaac Newton and his fall- 
ing apple, as we were a moment ago, might 
afford us another simple example of the paral- 
lel between the. thought processes of the great 
men of science and these thought chains we 
all muu use io ev cry-day hit. 



Suppose you saw an apple drop, picked it 
up and took a bite from it. A moment later 
you toss away the apple in disgust because 
you found that it was very sour and unpleas- 
ant to the taste. 

- 

Now, sometime later, you happened to pick 
up another apple at the grocers and you no- 
ticed" that it looked very much like the apple 
you saw fall from the tree. This one is, let us 
say, hard and green to the touch and the sight. 
Then you bite into this second apple and dis- 
cover that it is also very sour to the taste. 

The third time you see a hard, green apple, 
your mind Will say; "I don't have to bite this 
one! I know it's sour before I taste it!" You 
are now basing your conclusion on previous 
evidence that has proved infallible before. In 
short, you have arrived at a simple, scientific 
conclusion. Naturally, if you had the time and 
the inclination, you might sample thousands 
of hard, green apples from North Dakota to 
Normandy, and if you found that — invariably 
— air hard, green apples were sour, it wouldn't 
be necessary to question that point again. You 
have proved that this is so, scientifically! 

Perhaps, years later, when you had broken 
down the hard, green apples in your labora- 
tory and found them to be composed of cer- 
tain elements in proportions not found in 
other apples, you would have advanced a step, 
farther in your scientific knowledge of hard, 
green apples— and you would be known as 
a world authority on them. 

Certainly,* these simple examples are not as 
complex as, for example, measuring the heat 
of the sun to one millionth of one degree, but 
they follow along the same logical, scientific 
steps. 

Thus we see that each and everyone of us 
uses the methods of science in our every-day 
lives. We are *1L truly, scientists!
