- The fundamental issue for active conscious creatures is not what is the world from an objective perspective but how is it that you should conduct yourself in the world. And there is an unbridgeable gap between these two domains of inquiry and the reason for that is that a) the scientific method removes value from its description…you are supposed to be left with only that which is objective and value propositions are in the domain of the subjective, so that the idea that you could derive what you should be or do is flawed, and b) there is infinite number of facts, so how you are going to pick ones that should guide you? – you can’t. The facts do not tell you what to do with the facts.
