Since the earliest days of mankind, science, the attempt to understand and govern physical reality, has been practiced in one form or another. In its modern incarnation, however, science takes its origins from two different schools of practice: the untempered rationalism of Messenia, and the religio-mystical endeavour that comprises the Outward-directed Knowledge of Vaestism, evolving through in the one case through the Messenian Industrial Revolution, and in the other through the Joriscian Radiance.
