It is slightly different "here" from "there". The U.S. always seems to come up with more advanced weapons than other countries. Is it just because of more money spent on that particular branch of research or do the local minds think all "that" much differently than those in less technologically advanced countries? I think "focus" and agenda has more to do with it. Japan and China seem to think that there should be no limits on genetic manipulation and Russian scientists have focused more on chemical weapons...selling the results to foreign nations/allies. If they would focus more on "positive" science maybe we could have had a cure for cancer already instead of tentative "therapies".<quoted text>
Actually the collective of science is not unlike a hive mind , it is alive by the people who practice it. It spans the language barrier and is the same here as it is there.
AKA: The speed of light in a vacuum is the same in America as it is in India, and changes in the paradigm is learned by everyone from here to there. So not identity specific to be personified, it differs from religion, because of the basic fundamentally universal methodical agreement. So the persona of science is Systematic Observational Empiricism.
Count on the speed of light being used as a weapon instead of a blessing on future generations. Too many scientists concentrate on creating new, high-tech instruments of torture when the rack and gunpowder have already been more than effective in killing people.
Science needs a better conscience.
