-Given that: - How does the Imperial system itself (or your beliefs thereof) "suffer" from the Metric revisions above?
Personally: In being a "relativist", I don't personally believe in any "eternal truths or values" -
rather mere temporary, ad hoc assumptions, only to be used until proven false or something more operational turns up.
Hence, a realignment (within the system's consistency) is only yet another improvement for its utility.
Sort of a systematic "evolution" - (but then that concept will probably open yet another can of worms).
Thus my suggested realignment of the article's title above...
But then - all of the above is just one of my temporary working theories in using our crude human models
for putting some causality and predictability into an utterly incomprehensible and chaotic universe and its inhabitants.
