Gonna need to deconstruct this one sometime. Can something have a scientific purpose but not be science? I am not so sure. In any event I like where this is going. It dovetails nicely with my question about the invention of a computer by a non science (scientific method) knowing, non science using, people. Is such a thing possible? I say no but I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with a workaround for all the non-science having worlds. As much as I trash talk tech it seems a shame that an invention?/discovery? as glorious/awful as the computer should only be gifted/cursed to only the scientific worlds out there. In my view all civilizations should get/have to enjoy/loathe the benefits/drawbacks the computer brings to society.
