Science is intrinsically leftist: firstly, it says that we must start from first principles with no preconceptions, no reference to old books, no prejudices or intuitions—tradition is immediately excluded; secondly, it only admits quantitative evidence—the exception has no value to science, hence neither does the individual. If we start from these two facts alone, we have an atomised worldview that conceives a person as without roots to anything. The popular refrain “What’s your evidence for that?” grows from the scientific worldview—refusal to accept your own intuition or experience, deference to what will turn out to be a bureaucracy.

Science also attacks anything regarded as a superstition; and this amounts to an attack on the image, since the image is the process whereby magic occurs—the image is mimesis, as is the myth, and science is anti-mimetic; it refuses to accept that when I guise in a mask I become a god—it sits down and plays “skeptic”. “Could be, could be…let’s wait for some replicable evidence.” Remarkable one-off events (virgin births, resurrections, cures from leprosy) are inadmissible for science—if it doesn’t happen lots of times in a measurable way, it doesn’t happen at all for science; hence science is egalitarian—it’s about uniformity and mass.

We are locked into the scientific worldview, but it’s just circular reasoning: it a priori rules out anything based on quality, tradition, instinct, and intuition and then says, “We have no evidence that this can be the case.” It’s pretty easy to play dumb when your worldview excludes what amounts to art before you even start—how can you “see” if the only evidence provided is inadmissible to your worldview? To think in a scientific way must destroy traditions, must question that men and women are different, must break down races and nations—“I just treat everyone as an individual based on the evidence presented to me,” amounts to the scientific worldview applied to life; it’s also inherently leftist and democratic. It’s without value.
