Gentle Science by Shilpa Iyer



For Academic chairs are many,
Yet wise and noble teachers few;
And lecture rooms numerous,
Youth seeking truth and justice few.

Fast discoveries in science are a new reality,
Creating chaotic events lacking in quality,
We all read such papers so why complain?
Will it ever change or will this remain?

Certainly this cannot be mother nature’s way,
For she asks us to stop and think QA.
One must strive to improve quality,
Hidden in the depths of our fractal creativity

As we ameliorate our human society.
under the umbrella of scientific quality.
For each of us has a little responsibility,
To shape the world with our own individuality.

Einstein said, ”Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple and may as a rule be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone.” Yes, you are so right.. β€œGS” should not be treated as a trivial or light hearted concept. It is in fact a movement which aims towards contributing to the elevation of the human race and human life. Gentle science is a wake up call urging all of us to understand the intellectual work be it creative or receptive. It is a contemporary thought built upon an ancient concept. As an artist scientist all I can say is this movement is a hidden, intricate and beautiful fractal order underlying all seemingly chaotic fast paced scientific events. We as individuals can be personified as patterns relaying the simple unifying message in infinite variations and themes to revolutionize the view of the scientific world. Gentle Science basically aims to create a bridge between science and spirituality and applies this knowledge to better understand our own life and to live in harmony within our selves and with the universe around us. What we are really trying to achieve is a genesis of new ideas to reform our society.
