This is an interesting model.
IMHO, the model is missing one important element: Logic!
Logic is integral to the process of developing hypotheses and drawing conclusion. Without logic there is no science.
The school system yanked the study of logic from the curriculum a century ago. Logic interferes with the political desires of the ruling class.
I contend that, without logic, one cannot really have science. Without logic, science devolves into "scientism" which is as intellectually corrupt as all of the other ideologies that invest the globe.
