By Alex GriswoldOctober 21, 2019 12:05:00A recent scientific study by a group of academics from around the world is highlighting the importance of considering what we can learn from weird science.
Researchers from the University of New South Wales in Australia and the University at Buffalo in New York, along with two colleagues from Sweden, published their results on Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE.
They note that their findings suggest that the human tendency to think in terms of the world around us is a good predictor of the outcomes of weird science research.
“The results are very encouraging,” said Professor Mark W. Dickey, one of the study’s co-authors.
“They suggest that we should be paying attention to our weird science colleagues and asking how we can be more like them, to better understand them and to help them contribute to science.”
“The fact that we can all learn from one another shows that we need to look at each other,” he said.
“What we found is that when we think of weird people and science in general, we are likely to think of them as strange, or in some way weird.”
“We can’t do a lot of good by just trying to do the same thing to everyone else.”
The authors say they also discovered that, for instance, the number of weird individuals on Twitter may be a measure of how well they understand the science of weirdness.”
It’s important to understand how we are all connected in a way that we may not normally be.”
The authors say they also discovered that, for instance, the number of weird individuals on Twitter may be a measure of how well they understand the science of weirdness.
They note that the study is “deeply suggestive” of a deeper, sociological and cultural explanation for why strange people are popular.
“This is not the only explanation,” Dicky said.
The findings also raise the possibility that the idea that we all have to be weird, in some sense, is a myth.
“We know that people are different from one other, but how are they different?,” he added.
“It’s very hard to see how that could be true if we were to say that every human being is a weird individual, because the vast majority of humans would be normal.”
“In some sense there are no real ‘bad’ or ‘good’ people in this world,” Dic said.
However, the study also raises the possibility of some important implications for the way we talk about science and our relationship with it.
“There are lots of interesting things that people have to learn about each other to get along, but we need a bit more education in how to think about and communicate with each other in order to be able to find common ground,” Dinkies said.
