Yes I agree because….
If research were to be perfect, the word research would have been extinct by now. After discovering Abacus had we believed that our research was perfect do you think the Computer would have been invented? Had we stopped with the Candle we would not have the Electricity. Try applying this rule to everything that you see and feel. Don’t you wonder that if research were to be perfect, then would there be any ongoing research?
Research – The word in itself is a bit intriguing. It can mean that are we searching for something that was lost or it could also mean that we are searching again what we have so that something can be uncovered.
Now if we go with the first definition that we are searching for something that has been lost, two situations can arise. Are you sure that something has been lost and you are trying to find it or by researching you would loose what you already have. For example Pager has been lost to the research of Mobile.
Coming to the second definition that you are going to discover something new, are you sure that this has not been discovered before and forfeited by our ancestors? For instance you may discover that a certain plant has specific medicinal properties. It might happen that our ancestors have seen the side effects of the medicine in the long run and hence stopped using it. If we start using it as a medicine our next generation might see the side effects and defy the medicinal values of that plant.
Hence research is a continuous process and the outcomes are not predictable many a time. It generally involves laborious hours and lot of money. In spite of that there is no hope of doing perfect research because statistics can vary depending upon the data sample you have at the time of doing research. Two people in different parts of the world can claim completely opposite results of a topic because of the varying test data or differing environment they have.
