In Segment 2, of this series on trends, we mentioned “meso-facts.”
They are so-named by S. Arbesman, since they shift slowly and
are part of the technological world in which we live.  They
change more slowly than the fast-changing facts and we
notice them and sometimes have trouble dealing with them,
as they represent a certain notion of our understanding of the
world.

Hard to believe, but true, standards for mass measurement do
not keep a constant mass
.

Similarly, the scientific world has assumed new aspects
of investigation with computers, databases and searching.
As Brian Claus reported at a recent meeting, a fourth
pillar of scientific research interrogating “big data with
advanced computing infrastructures” has emerged.
It is in addition to experiment, theory and simulation/
modeling and will revolutionize therapeutics.  See also,
