OK, Bryant, you made the 'mistake' of replying, so I'll add more :) I love Rupert Sheldrake, another bona fide scientist who is heroically plugging away at the 'anomalies'. And a recent book, 'Suggestible You', about science finally taking the astonishing power of 'suggestion, expectation and belief', i.e., the placebo/nocebo effect, seriously. I love mysteries, so I love science, because taking them on is supposed to be its business! And, it is also in the business of always disproving itself :) "There is more in heaven and earth than is dreamed of in your philosophies, Horatio!"
(PS, I think the hubris of 'scientism' will be the downfall of legit research (along with selling out)... maybe the 'replication crisis' will lead to it's rehabilitation :)
Oh, and back on topic, a truly brilliant man (read Thomas Aquinas in original Latin, for pleasure ;) I worked for also had organic acreage, and used Biodynamic 'ashing' protocol to greatly reduce a weed ... I think it was knappweed or some thistle. It seemed to work for him.
