What is Science? Why live life according to Science? Holistic Living that is based on Science?
Science is defined as:
the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
In the simplest sense, Science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence (as defined by the Science Council)
Further, the scientific methodology includes the following:
- Objective observation: Measurement and data (possibly although not necessarily using mathematics as a tool)
- Experiment and/or observation as benchmarks for testing hypotheses
- Induction: reasoning to establish general rules or conclusions drawn from facts or examples
- Critical analysis
- Verification and testing: critical exposure to scrutiny, peer review and assessment
As seemingly odd for someone with immense intellect and Scientific influence, background and knowledge, Dr Zam, being a devoted believer of God, the Higher Being, the Creator of All Things, refers to the Holy Quran (one of God’s holy books amongst the world’s major religions), in which God says unequivocally:
We will show them Our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this ˹Quran˺ is the truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is a Witness over all things?The Holy Quran 41:53
those who listen to what is said and follow the best of it. These are the ones ˹rightly˺ guided by Allah, and these are ˹truly˺ the people of reason.The Holy Quran 39:17-18
Do not follow what you have no ˹sure˺ knowledge of. Indeed, all will be called to account for ˹their˺ hearing, sight, and intellect.The Holy Quran 17:36
Taken together, the Higher Being, the Creator, has called upon us all, to use Science, and technology to better our lives. That is Dr Zam’s Living® Science-based Living approach for Body, Mind and Soul.
