Interesting how we 'humans' come to conclusions in 'science'!
The human mind can only define things that it has been taught or experienced and languaged, so what ever we look for, look at or find can only be put into words we know.
Put another way its like the story from India where 6 blind men describe and elephant after each is stood in front of places around an elephant. The man at the trunk sees it as a snake, the man at the ear sees it as a fan, the man at the leg sees it as a tree, the man at the tail sees it as a whip, the man at the side sees it as a wall and the last man has no arms.
We can only assume things are as we have knowledge of them rather than observe the full and also the surrounding. (Tao or Synchronicity or God or what ever your learning has told you
More than one thing happens at any time and there are compounding things rather than a moment in time like a pebble dropped in water having a ripple effect.
