Thought experiment: Why science and analytical thinking is only one tool

1. Please summarize the Hobbit in outline form
2, Please chart the or spreadsheet the Hobbit
3. Please compare each to the original (as a piece of wisdom, humanity, and art)

The same could be said for any great movie, story, or piece of art.

* It also seems odd that scientists want to omit purpose from talking about nature or natural things. That is to suggest that nature has no nature–that they have no telos or essence or perhaps even value. We must ascertain intrinsic value based on value of some sort–which is notably derived from purpose.
