Fringe science has its basis in established science, but explores and studies areas at the very boundaries, and is often poorly funded and under-resourced. Whilst fringe science usually leads upon a road to nowhere, occasionally a branch blossoms into a fully established field, and may even bring about a paradigm shift. Fringe scientists are usually starved of funding, so researchers have the image of the ‘eccentric scientist’ working away in his shed.
Chaos theory operated at the fringe of accepted physics, using computers and technology begged, borrowed or stolen from other departments. The young scientists who worked upon it were told that they would have trouble finding funding, that other physicists would refuse to review their work, and that they would never move upwards.
Despite the fact that fringe science is established in set up science, it investigates ideas at the outrageous limits of standard examinations. In view of the outrageous idea of these thoughts, periphery science will in general get next to no subsidizing. Hence, fringe science researchers frequently fit the form of the ‘insane lab rat’. In any case, these researchers are misfits, rebels maybe. They are regularly a solid power in logical change. Their extreme reasoning can lead standard science to changes in the typical and acknowledged method of doing or contemplating science – a change in outlook.
Bio weaponization is nothing new. During the Middle Ages, invading armies would fling plague-ridden corpses over castle walls. Jeffrey Amherst, infamous racist douchebag, goes down in history for giving Native Americans blankets covered in smallpox germs to “Extirpate this Execrable Race.” [Reference]
Fringe science has been hugely responsible for researchers to understand many facets of the human brain. This branch of fringe science stems from the hypothesis that the human brain is infinitely capable, but certain social and physical factors prohibit us from reaching our full potential. We humans have been using drugs in an attempt to access our whole brains for about as long as we’ve been on this planet. We still use all sorts of drugs to try and utilize all the nooks and crannies of the brain. But medications like psychostimulants to treat children with hyperactive disorders, and neurotropics (or “smart drugs”) have yet to be tested with any real accuracy.
Some of the studies within fringe science includes mind Control, Pyrokinesis, Teleportation, Psychokinesis, Nanotechnology, Artificial Intelligence, Precognition, Dark Matter, Suspend Animation, Cybernetics, Transmogrification, Hypnosis, Neuroscience, Parallel Universes, Cryonics, Astral Projection, Protoscience, Mutation, & Genetic Engineering to name a few. Of these studies, AI, nanotechnology, mind control, neuroscience have already become a wide field of research for scientists across the globe. It’s just time that the others become alive!!!
