How do you mean exactly?
This topic seems to suffer from... well... let's put it like this:
"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
Not much would change really. We might get an even better GPS system, but thats about it when it comes to all practical purposes.
t least serious scientist would start working on FTL drives. That would be cool.
Wrong about what?
There is an article in Discover magazine the cover storey, about some serious scientist think he is wrong. I bought the mag but haven't read the article yet?
The world would be exactly the same, we would just have a starting point for a deeper understanding of it -- like when scientists realised that Newton's and Maxwell's theories were mutually exclusive :)
That's my theory :D
From one intellectual blunder spawn thousands of new queries and a subsequent plethora of answers (to which there shall always be more questions).
Many Greek scientists and philosophers have long since been proved incorrect, but it's only made things better for the world.
You know its funny that some of Einstein's stuff disproved some of Newton's stuff, but Newton's stuff is still useful.
Of course he is wrong. N0 one knows how or why yet but he is. I just really don't think gravity is a curve in space. But That is just my instinct and a WAG.
