Articles in the Hypothesis series are published on the 1st and 15th of each month. The Science Circle will go on Summer holiday in July and August. A new Hypothesis! column will come your way on September 1st. Happy trails y’all.
Hypothesis! is written by Deepy (Deepthinker Oh), who is an educational psychologist with a long standing love of journalism and previous experience as the editor of MANIERA magazine. The name – Hypothesis! – was chosen because hypotheses are integral to every field of science. As scientists, we discover new truths by testing our assumptions until we find the assumption that seems most probable. Deepy is pictured at the Caledon Oxbridge Village Fencing Club. Her motto: “The pen is NOT mightier than the sword but it comes close.” Deepy’s use of the SLBN logo does not constitute approval by or a representation or endorsement from Linden Lab.
