I think good scientific training prepares you to open your mind in this way. It's one reason why I think it's so dangerous that science is under attack in American public schools.

Totally agree. It's curious how many people think scientific training makes one's mind cold and analytical, robotic and computational. On the contrary, I'd say the most creative ideas come from scientists. The rest of us just follow their lead.

And if a country wants to utilize its greatest resource--its people--to the fullest, it should not skimp on educating its children in math and the sciences. The arts, too of course. This is so obvious it seems ridiculous to state it. And yet you look at the amount of money that goes toward education relative to the military, and well ... I'm preaching to the converted, aren't I?
