Scientific diets and the industrial era

Firts part

Being born in an industrial society puts you a condition of intellectual blindness. This blindness happens when the dominant ideology makes invisible what is out there and it only lets you see what you have been taught to see. In the scientific era, a great emphasis was placed on the importance of numbers and numerical quantities as it was fruitful in other parts of the smart ape knowledge. Other important part in their school is what is coined as the scientific method, which became the new industrial semi religion. This era sparked interests in applying scientific thinking in all aspects of life, reaching all the way to diets. To gain advantages, the apes started doing experiments. Some started only eating fat. Others hanged to what medical doctors recommended. Yet, the whole thing has to be based in scientific thinking, even when the experts themselves look terrible. It got so bad that they measured the validity of a diet based on the scientific titles of the proponent, discarding everything else. That is, being blind to anything else. But the smart apes had a long road ahead. Since scientist were specialist in a particular subject, they could not grasp others. Thus they became talking idiots with titles and attracting only others of similar mentality.

It does not.

People are smarter, healthier, living longer

Quote

A modern visitor to ancient Egypt would be struck by the youthfulness of the people. Ancient Egyptians, like all mankind until the advent of modern medicine and public hygiene, died young [10]. The age people hoped to reach was 110, described as the ideal lifespan in literature [12], but reality was different. Life expectancy for one year old children was less than forty years. Water-borne diseases, tuberculosis and other infectious illnesses against which the best physicians of antiquity were mostly powerless, were endemic [1]. Periodically various kinds of plague broke out, often in the wake of wars. The sick, the very young and the elderly were especially prone to succumb.

Much of the time, malnutrition rather than hunger was the lot of many Egyptians, even of the wealthier ones, and caused scurvy, anaemia and other diseases. Famines, which were mostly local when there was a functioning central government but could become countrywide when there was none, occurred every few years despite the attempts of the authorities to keep stores which could be distributed in times of need [6].
There were snakes, crocodiles and hippos killing the unwary. Accidents, physical violence and a lifetime of hard work from a young age also took their toll. The death rate of newborns alone was about a third, half the children did not survive their fifth year, and women died frequently giving birth or from childbed fever. Funerals were thus terrifyingly frequent occurrences.

Way back when large societies were forming, the rulers were aided by holders of knowledge. Then, as the mass grew in size, there were internal divisions and knowledge was farther divided. Multiple experts appeared. Each expert claimed to be an authority of a cell of knowledge. But it was all virtual, all ideological. Since each cell required an investment of effort and time, each cell of knowledge became a mini empire to protect, an ideological empire to defend. But apes, the animal, were the only ones that had the real property existence. Ideas didn't. Apes started calling themselves different names to make their knowledge real. Nowadays, there are apes that call themselves scientists. Way back then, knowedge was the product of purpose. But later, knowledge became its own purpose. It was a virtual empire to protect that needed to justify itself.

There is a trade off or compromise in understanding. In order to know something better or deeper, other areas have to be blacked out. A cell with depth has small area and vice versa. A cell with large area has little depth. That is, specialization has a prize. The depth gives the ape a vertical sense of social climbing. It is a virtual hierarchical ranking similar to prestige. For example, some apes put their picture on a scientific website front page to symbolize the status. But an specialized ape, when stepping out of its cell, carries the same the level confidence.

Each cell of knowledge is a cognitive world with its own limits. Each cognitive world has rules that create a structure. Structure bias perception. When something does not fit the structure it is shut down or goes through like water on a sieve. When you are trained, you are trained to perceived. But this perception includes beliefs about what is knowledge and how things should be found. Science starts with many false assumptions because it has to start somewhere. For example, science believes in the art of dialectics.

So what is a scientific method? A method comes from

practice, procedure, method

A scientific method is a monological idea based on assumptions of other ideas. It aspires to be a conclusion based thinking. But thinking is an art that depends on context. A scientific diet that comes from a scientific method is an idea that wants to be achieve something. But for who? A country that hires scientist would perhaps come up with such type of dream. But all definitions are made by apes. What do the apes want with a scientific diet?

This is what the apes want. As the apes gathered together in groups to gain protection, they structured their activities and also gained a scheduled life. With a scheduled life, uncertainty about the future became important. Rules appeared as a trial and error method to avoid uncertainty. The sedentary life of modern apes needed therapeutic treatment to avoid a short life. In this atmosphere, scientific diets appeared as scientific diets seek to be therapeutic. Scientific diets seek to be structured. They have a schedule and rules. Scientific diets seek to compensate for uncertainty. But they are an ideological invention full of concepts and promises. They are an ideological adaptation to gatherings.

What is the intentionality of a scientific approach to diet? Diets started to become important after the main wars of the XX century. Science was demonstrated to be practical and gained a higher reputation. This type of knowledge was practical. Apes started to systematically study diets to try to obtain a practical advantage. Numerous theories were made and they were tested by how pragmatic they were. Regions of the world were studied and to match the concurrent ideologies, new products appeared. But there was a conflict. New products started to appeared and they were cloaked by the scientific flag. The products promised pragmatism. The original pragmatism became something else and was derailed by economic interests. Science had become a product factory. Its purpose was changed to sell products and obtain financial gains.

If science were to be applied to a group, then it would be assumed that the rules would apply equally to everybody. Is there a reason to doubt that a Calorie in a person is not the same a Calorie in another? Yes, but perhaps only if you have not been brained washed in a scientific school. Apes coming out of schools become drones because it gives them value and don't won't to lose it.

[en.wikipedia.org]

Quote

the small calorie, or gram calorie (symbol: cal), is defined as the approximate amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius at a pressure of one atmosphere.[1] The second is the large calorie or kilogram calorie (symbol: Cal), also known as the food calorie and similar names,[2] is defined in terms of the kilogram rather than the gram. It is equal to 1000 small calories or 1 kilocalorie (symbol: kcal)

See in the following video how science creates definitions by starting with an intellectual acceptance of believing in universal constants that don't change.
