HOW SCIENCE SERVES MAN
by Prof. Ernesto “Boogie” C. Boydon, MSCS
July 18, 1999

The insatiable quest for knowledge has always been man’s biggest driving force that propelled him from a primitive existence to a lifestyle characterized by convenience and advanced intelligence. And it has always been an inherent quality borne by man’s natural domination over his surrounding environment. Science is the formalization of this instinctive quest for knowledge. As noted scientist Albert Einstein puts it succinctly ”The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.”1 It presents what would otherwise seem to be mere accidental discoveries as a disciplined formulation of thought, hypothesis, investigation, analysis and conclusion. It performs “observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.”2

Hay! Long overdue na itong kwento na ‘to. Dalawang linggo na ang nakalipas mula nang mag-reunion ang batch ko sa Philippine Science High School noong Dec. 30. Actually, pangalawang pagkakataon na naming nagkita-kita ng batch sa loob lamang ng isang buwan. Kagaya nga ng nasabi ko sa Panahon ng Reunion - Part 1,

“Ang panahon ng Pasko ay hindi lang para sa pamilya at mga mahal sa buhay. Karaniwan, ito ay nagiging pagkakataon din upang magkita-kits ang mga magkakaklase na matagal na panahong hindi nagkita.

Last Thursday, my batch from elementary at the Manila Central University in Caloocan met at Max’s Restaurant in Caloocan. Actually, our group started meeting last year after a long period of not seeing one another. We graduated from elementary at MCU in 1972.

Astig!! Yan ang madalas kong madinig sa mga anak kong teenagers (3 silang lahat, puro lalaki, ang bunso kong babae na only girl ay 10 years old pa lang). Sa totoo lang, recycled na ang term na to. Binata pa ko ay ginagamit na din namin to. Galing sa salitang “Tigas” (Tig-as –> as-Tig, baka sakali lang na me hindi naka-gets) ito ay itinuturing sa isang bagay, tao, o pangyayari na nakakabilib, sobrang galing, o basta lang kahanga-hanga.
