It is often said that science is a 'model' of reality out there. I think this statement is wrong. It presupposes that there is a reality that is beyond 'modelling'. Suppose, someone really finds out the reality 'as it really is'. ( I am not saying there surely is). She would first of all perceive it (may be by a faculty that is beyond the senses) before declaring that it is the real reality and not a model of it. This perception (even spiritual perception) is in itself a ' model ' in her brain / mind/spirit of what she is thinking to be absolutely real. So, imo, every reality is 'modelling' of one kind or the other. Any thoughts?
