Daniel,"What is it like to be a scientist" "What is the world like" for "What it is it like to be a scientist"
You are right..."unless man is to be a mystery in the universe and, consequently, so are all of his theories" "What it is like to be a bat" "What is the world for" "What it is like to be a bat"
"unless a bat is to be a mystery in the universe and consequently, so are all of its theories"
Neither a human being nor a bat know what they are about when they experience the world...
