It seems that wasteful science has been a talking point this week. So I figured why not see what biomimicry says…
Genetic mutation, genetic drift, sometimes it’s great, sometimes it sucks.
Wasteful science is only discovered after it has been done.
Funding is done by some informed group that is aware of the “current DNA” and they think about what would be good to change or add. Mistakes will be made.
So I guess wasteful science is the left and right hand turns of progress… and I still think we probably won’t know until we try, especially if what we believed was wrong.
