I do understand why a business person would relate with and care for market issues and, as the title suggests, these people should know well why do I care science first and foremost. Yes, of course we disagree: our very essence are not the same. Core of our beings. Still, we can understand and be polite with each other, but, like I said, I have to ask:Even the subproletarian class of software developers sometimes needs to earn some money to

Now apply this to the Universality Test and we'll get a world lacking science, proper emphasis on it, therefore with a plethora of trouble (even SarS-CoV-2 perhaps?).the industry tends to prefer the most marketable thing over the technologically best, and the market is easily deluded
