Renaissance Science and a 'Fair Dinkum' Australian Politician

Some people mourn an aspect of political candour that existed in Australia during the era of the 20th Century's political struggle to ensure educational opportunities for the working class. A sense of Australia 'doing right' to 'get somewhere' or to 'forge ahead', existed in contrast to the 21st Century's 'spin doctoring', with its continual reference to various complex financial graphs and charts. The Australian term 'fair dinkum' was a colloquial expression used to denote an opinion that was genuinely held with no reservations. 'Fair Go' was associated with the making of reasonable judgemental policies and the term 'using your Nous' was another popular term, referring to using one's common-sense. Master tradesman often exhorted their apprentices to use their Nous to solve problems.

A fair dinkum Aussie Pollie, in that bygone era, used his or her Nous to ensure a fair deal, and such a person became a well respected Australian politician. The Australian Federal Minster, Simon Crean, had earned such a reputation, along with the rough and tumble criticism from those who put profits ahead of all else. Simon Crean devoted his life creating educational opportunities for fellow Australians, be they unemployed tradespeople or those engaged in fields of higher education.

Simon Crean has become a pivotal figure in ensuring that Australians get a fair go to become acquainted with the development of an entirely new science of chemistry. This medical science, now established by three 1996 Nobel Laureates in Chemistry, is emerging onto the world stage, in complete defiance of the 20th Century's fixed life-science world-view. Australia, thanks to Simon Crean, holds a prominent position within its great futuristic global potential, in which the importance of the Platonic tradition of Greek philosophy, to fuse ethics into the Nous, is of paramount importance within the functioning of the new chemistry.

During 1995, as the Minister for Employment, Education and Training, Simon Crean's Department investigated an application by the Science-Art Research Centre in Australia to become An Australian Government Approved Research Institute. A major Australian University's assessment for the Government claimed, that while the Centre's work was not factually erroneous, it was inconceivable. The scientific hostility toward the Centre's work was such that its mathematical life-force theories, reprinted in 1990 as one of the 20th Century's important discoveres, by the world's largest research institute based in Washington, the IEEE SPIE Milestone series, was treated with hostile contempt in Australia.
