However, “more work needs to be done” often seems more like a disclaimer than an actual admission of the current state of knowledge. For example, author writes paper about neural networks, author assumes synapses are simple linear devices, author emphasizes importance of work, author notes that more should be done to undertand how brains work. But the proposed work to be done is not an admission that the author’s model assumptions violate everything we know about synapses. The actual level of Ignorance is not acknowledged, but instead modesty is falsely implied by the authors’ ignorance with respect to a lofty goal, such as curing mental illness or evolving into pure energy. Make no mistake - science papers in many fields convey an inflated sense of understanding, and grant money often follows outrageous claims of truth or significance.
