Observing Observers

  1. Jan 26, 2008 #1
    Per perceiving predilections effect,
    researchers search precautions to assure
    that their constructed theories won’t be wrecked
    by accredited critics who abjure
    results from lax experimentation
    which funnels too few affecting factors.
    Scientist’s psyches lack isolation --
    all audiences are also actors.
    Objectivity varies with the minds
    involved whose realities rarely budge;
    what one expects to see is what one finds.
    One must watch “blind” to impartially judge --
    so data’s distinct from observations
    which bind to belief’s anticipations.
