Waikato Times letter of the week #83

From the edition of Saturday 4 November. As always, spelling, punctuation, grammar and logic are exactly as printed in the Waikato Times.
Monster planet find
Today’s (November 2) page 4 headline “Kiwi leads team’s ‘monster planet’ find” once again dismisses scientific perspective as the best tool for ascertaining cosmic truth, in our search for understanding all of “existence” and our attempts to define “limits” to the universe. The article clearly establishes that the “find” of the giant planet in orbit around a small star which could not have “created” that planet, confounds the scientific perspective of how planets and solar systems are formed . . . ie, the perspective of our science highly distorts the search for actuality, when the generally accepted theory of planet and star formation is now shown to be wrong, or at least subject to exceptions, even within the tiny part of existence that perspective and science arrogantly describe as “the universe”.
Even such discoveries as this one in question, while a great credit to some of the scientific research going on in this field, also serves to show us that the philosophical and intrinsic-intuitive understanding of the reality of existence will eventually reveal far more truths of its nature than our ego-centralised scientific perspective ever will.
