“You don't know what pain is!” Does anyone? Is it subjective, or can we measure it? Can it be approached scientifically? Maybe we should make a graph, and at some point say, “Here. This- this is pain.” If we did do this, what would the purpose be? Maybe there is no purpose in science, science, with its graphs and charts and scientific papers. Maybe we should just rely on instinct, although- is instinct really reliable? I had a teacher once that said humans don't have much instinct, although leaders are often exceptionally instinctual. Maybe we should all be leaders, then.
