Ramblings is a collection of writings that tend to ramble on different topics to spark interest, challenge, and encourage others to research and think deeper on the issues of life. It is not meant to cause dissension, arguments, or debates in any way. They are merely points and thoughts to ponder. The "other side of the coin" so to speak. A Rambling is not meant to necessarily draw to a conclusion. It's up to you, the reader to do that.
PHD. What does it really mean?
All the sciences are wonderful to study and learn. Many people spend a lifetime studying a
particular science with great satisfaction and understanding. There is Biology, Geology,
Astronomy, Chemistry, Nuclear Physics, General Physics, Sociology, Psychology, and many more.
What do all of these have in common? It is interesting that all of these subjects can be learned
to a depth of understanding which can earn a degree called a PHD. That means a Doctor in
Philosophy. A degree in Philosophy for that particular subject. Interesting isn't it. This
appears to be the highest degree to be obtained in studying a subject. The most in-depth study of a particular subject.
This seems to indicate
that all studies lead to a philosophy or become philosophical and ultimately leads to the
unexplainable. We may learn how something works but not why it works that way or why it works
in a particular way but not how it works. An example is Astronomy, as we observe through
the Hubble Telescope we are seeing further out into the universe and the further we look the
more stars we see. It is never ending. Also as we look further under the microscope and deeper
into particle physics we are going further and further down the scale finding more and more
particles ever going smaller but never finding the end. The more questions we answer the more
questions we have that are unanswerable which brings us to the final Rambling Thought.
