Xhope scenario

Stuart imagines (in relation to science) a world where “you have two different systems operating with equal amounts of funding. And now you can really see at a grand scale, hopefully, what happens and what are the results. There will be a chance to test out lots of different meta science ideas that people have discussed for years or decades.”

These wouldn’t be small changes either. Stuart wishes for entire institutions run completely differently from current ones, in the hands of entirely different people. For him, we’re currently “so focused on doing whatever gets you approval from the kind of the existing bureaucracy”, that we’ve forgotten how to be innovative and radical.

He imagines changes across the system could breed a number of great breakthroughs, on the scale that we as a society have not seen in many years.
