From the Preface by Tabitha Jayne…
When the Galileo Report was first published, it became clear that the scientific format was difficult for the general public to follow. The layman’s guide was created to bring the wisdom contained within the report to a wider audience.
We are at a critical time in the history of humanity. The ideas contained within the report provide solid evidence on what is needed to expand science and help humanity evolve in the face of its current challenges.
I was a child when I first came across some of the research presented in this report. It captured my interest and has helped shaped my own career. Reading the Galileo Report was like someone had taken my own reading and research for the last 30 years, condensed it and filled in a number of missing gaps.
Much of the substantive editing that I did to create the layman’s guide consisted of researching the importance of the people referenced in the report to help give context for those who are not familiar with the field. I also simplified the science and pulled out the story.
The Galileo Report is a story about science and how it has become a religion. It is a story about the evidence that shows it is time for science to start questioning its own assumptions and become relevant to address the challenges of the 21st century.
I have only been able to write this as a story because of the hard work Harald did in writing the original report. A full list of references is available in the original Galileo Report. There is also more information about the more philosophical and technical aspects of the argument. In writing the layman’s guide, I have attempted to follow the full report as closely as possible so that the wisdom within can truly shine out.
As the impact of Covid-19 continues to play out in the world, the arguments contained within the Galileo Report have an even deeper significance. They highlight the conflict over the accuracy of science and political decisions along with a lack of public trust. More importantly, the Galileo Report offers a solution.
