     scientific enquiry has placed a limitation on its ways. It accepts only those observations that are within the realm of the human senses, supplemented now a days by technical gadgets.
    In so doing it can see only that which has taken form. That which has not yet taken form, the formless remains beyond its scope. All the path breaking discoveries have been made by people, like Newton, Einstein et all, who were visionaries first and scientists later.
    A visionary sees the aura, the scientist sees only the body. 
    a scientist goes by performance, the visionary senses the potential.
    A scientist is bound by limits, the visinary dwells in the limitless.
