I think the very nature of The Scientific Method encourages exploration in every possible way. it accepts and questions everything we know and think we know and don’t know and combines them into this wonderful setup that removes us from the system, while linking us to each other and the world almost imperceptibly yet intrinsically. it says that we may have opinions, but that a decision made using the scientific method should result in a “correct” answer, regardless of opinions, if such an answer exists, and the next best alternative if it doesn’t, while always working toward that best alternative, which may include your opinion or even be your opinion verbatim, but it’s only ever one answer in a very large interconnection of questions with varying answers that need constant attention in many cases. this can be an immensely humbling experience for someone who has believed in extremely firm polarities like good and evil as determining factors in their decision making processes. and even harder to swallow if you’ve been profiting immensely off the current systems. but again, the Scientific Method removes that side of us from our decisions.
