Advancing the use of “Continuous zero-based reassessment of assumptions, hypotheses and methods”: A vital tool and technique in the interests of better science

The approach conceptualized, described and advocated in this paper may appear to be highly conventional and non-radical at the outset and at a preliminary or a cursory glance, but it has plenty of substance to offer to the healthy pursuit of rigour, dispassionate objectivity, and wholesome and balanced scientific activity. We do not aim or propose to set the cat among the pigeons or create an unwarranted flutter that could potentially rattle and alienate scholars, but instead create in the medium and the long-term, a healthy, an infallible and a dedicated enterprise devoted to the constant grounds-up assessment and reassessment of assumptions both explicit and implicit, methods, methodologies, tools, techniques, hypotheses, processes, procedures, frameworks and paradigms, including all legacy and archaic methods, methodologies, tools, techniques, hypotheses, processes, procedures, frameworks and paradigms such that an intrinsic self-correcting mechanism can be forged and materialized to channelize science and scientific activity in a meaningful and a productive longterm direction, and in the healthy interests of science and society as a whole. Needless to say, we expect this to lead to faster scientific progress as well, and what we have always called “scientific progress at the speed of light”.
