Please mod this guy up. The best statement in this string about the fundamental error in the topic as presented .
Anyone who feels they have come to understand the TRUTH about the world is welcome to it but that's not what science is about at it's core. It's about the creation of an outcome I desire by understanding "how" to create it. It's about finding the mathematical relationships between aspects of the reality we perceive - directly or through our tools.
How we come to identify which mathematics might apply , envisioning models that build from our " "first-level" generalizations which are directly, perceptually obvious" , is an interesting topic but it never relates to discovering truth in the sense philosopher's seek.
