One of the main problems facing the scientific community of today is that the general populous finds no ‘meaning’ in its enterprise. There is, and never has been, a drive from the rational community to order their percepts in terms of narratives or myths. In fact, the scientific enterprise has struggled with this… Yet SCIENCE NEEDS TO HAVE narrative meaning.The current stand-off in America between the religiously inclined and the scientifically enabled is a result of this issue. If science, rationalism and technology is ever to make a mark on the masses it MUST reorder itself into narrative forms which innate human capacities can find palatable. The Grand Narratives of Religion, in all their dangerous naivety, have hold over the populace because they work with the human faculties of narrative and mythology.
