I would have like to vote in that poll. ...But the most important option was missing: Both. ...Too bad, next poll I guess.
What is the Top Science of all sciences? ...If you don't know or aren't sure don't worry; it is Biology.
The body and mind.
Alright are you ready?
I just finished talking to Mom, and she said that she loves me and she embraces me with a big hug and a kiss, and I told her the same (on the phone; she lives near Montreal).
So now I am totally free to share my objective, and by no subjective way.
Once upon a time there was a human person walking down by a bridge, in circles. ...Nobody knew where he was coming from; which side of the bridge, and no one knew exactly where he was going. ...But we all knew that he/she was on that bridge.
Under the bridge there was a river, and on the river banks there were some trees and in them trees there were birds.
With time, that human being started to walk slower and slower in circles, as if the body was finally meeting its limits.
We all observed attentively, and patiently (we have nothing else to do back then; we were contemplating and trying to make sense of what we were seeing), till night falls and that we couldn't see the human anymore (lights were not yet invented).
So we all eventually fell asleep under that big comfy tree (our viewpoint).
Early the next morning, @ the first natural light of sun, we all marvelled @ the human still walking in circles in the middle of the bridge, but now he was in slow-mo.
And still we have no clue, more than before, @ where he/she was from and going to; which side of the bridge.
Time went on like this for days. ...And days became weeks (we had a solar system by which we can approximately calculate earth time), and until one day he/she just collapsed right on that spot; in the middle of his/her circles. ...And I do mean "collapsed", because he/she was not breathing anymore!
Alright, we started thinking... And then, between all of us, we came to a sort of common conclusion. Without any testing tools available to us @ that time, we simply figured out (in our brain), that he/she was simply exhausted and in need of water, and food too.
Because everyday we eat fruits from the trees surrounding us, but not that human on that bridge.
But! @ night we couldn't see him/her. ...We all assumed that he/she was still walking in circles.
Our assumption; was it truly validated (without light, without seeing)?
So we started analysing all possibilities.
The first one was ...
The second one was ...
The third one was ...
Today, we have more tools. Tomorrow, we'll have even more. And that day, yesterday, when that human collapsed on that bridge, we just might know more about what really happened, but it will always remain uncertain for sure, because many things were missing back then, and we simply cannot restore the light, @ night, from past experiments, thinks that we all witnessed.
Our brain tells us this, and an autopsy reveals that, and this and that, perhaps, are part of the ensemble. ...Our interpretation of what we know so far, our exploration in the science of biology and the neurology.
Now, you might think, yes but what it's got to do with objectivity and subjectivity in audio/video? ...Everything.
The body and mind are affected by their activities, and they influence our judgements on ways we hear and see.
And the tools we have are only the tools we ourselves created. ...How truly reliable are they for us to truly reliably appreciate and accept their results. Tools are for fabricating, creating, fixing, ...like a paint brush, like a chisel, like a scalpel, like an electron generator. And they are only as good as we created them (the tools).
Anyway, to make a long story from a short one; don't buy a polar bear skin before first going into polar bear country/territory.
...And bring some matches.
