**This idea of ‘Not’ has a very long reach, a reach not fully appreciated by most of us. Here’s just one more example which might give you reason to give it its due respect. The Post is trimmed to a quarter of its original length. **

**‘Scientific-Law’ is a forgivable exaggeration by the scientific-community. They are in fact generalizations from limited observations, tentatively affirmed hypothesis leading a precarious existence. **

**The Mother Principle of Experimental-Science is the Principle of Induction. And along with the Contradiction Principle, it holds up much of what we know as modern Science.**

**And Induction’s ‘Rejection-Machine’ becomes functional, takes life, because of the word ‘Not’. And its sidekicks, ‘Always’ and ‘Never.**

**The Principle says: ‘Like tomorrow’s sunrise, what is happening will continue happening until it doesn’t happen.’**

**The Induction Rule is formalized in the Mathematics of ‘Probability Theory’.** **And the First Affirmation of Experimental Science is that a hypothesis is never proved. It only stands unrejected. ***Via Negativa*.

**The Principle of Falsifiability and its numerous variants.**

**It is impossible to prove that a man always speaks the truth, but easy to test if he never lies. One lie is proof.**
