The system is broken down into tiny areas of knowledge. Each group puts together models of how the system works. Also, faculty are encouraged to publish a lot, and previously published work is deemed “correct.” The system is guided by financial grants, showing what kinds of outcomes governments and others would like to see. The result gets to be a lot of beliefs that are close to fairy tales that are passed on, and develop a life of their own.
