The question is: Is something important because it is measured or is it measured because it is important? Are we focusing on the things because they are important or is it important to focus on the things of unknown value?    

Science knows the future? (IM 786)

The job of science is to discover things. It discover new technology, new drugs, new treatments, and new machinery. They discover artificial implants.
