Talk at the PARKINSON LEADERS WORKSHOP in Berlin, 29.08.2022.
To myself: I am a patient with scientific education, diagnosed in 2008, less than 10 years after my PhD in molecular genetics.
To the point: I am convinced, there would be no Atom-Bombe, no Man on the Moon and no Human Genome sequenced yet, if we would’ve tried to do it, as we have tried to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.
Obviously, the applied problem-solving strategy does not match the problem.
I feel something has to be changed…
…since our goal is to terminate Parkinson’s Disease and to remove it from the list of incurable diseases within a decade.
But, is this goal realistic at all?
The truth is: I cannot answer this question with yes or no. Nobody can.
But I know: the probability to be successful and achieve this goal, growth with the amount of Knowledge we generate.
Knowledge generation is the purpose of SCIENCE. In German: „Wissenschaft schafft Wissen.“ The process of scientific knowledge generation transforms money & intelligence into knowledgE. And as we all know: knowledgE is Power is Energy.
This Energy can feed another process. This process generates money. It is called INNOVATION.
The complimentary interdependence of these two processes can be visualized.
I call the resulting image the Science-Innovation-Cycle.
The science process S needs money m and intelligence i and generates knowledgE. And this knowledgE this Energy can be applied together with intelligence to the INNOVATION process that generates money.
Wouldn’t it be cool or even useful to combine these 4 letters (E m i i) to a meaningful equation?!
I tried and found this one.
E = mi2
I call it: The fundamental equation of scientific knowledge generation.
But what does this equation tell us?
There are two components that are crucial for the success of a scientific project, for the process of knowledge generation: money & intelligence. And intelligence is even more important then money that’s why i2
Consequently,If we want to be successful with our project we need to attract the brightest brains, a multidisciplinary, multi-national champions-league team as well as a sufficient amount of money – FROM PRIVATE INVESTORS AS WELL AS FROM GOVERNMENTS…
How to do all this is what our Roadmap 1.0 is all about.
Finally, and with a big smile I noticed there was another cool guy who came up with a similar equation (E=mc2) quite some time ago. This equation was in the end the basis for the Manhattan Project – which he actually initiated with a letter to the US President, Roosevelt in 1939.
And as I put his equation into my presentation environment it is (by the moon) automatically transformed into the new equation. Indeed both equations E=mc2 and E=mi2 appear at the same place simultaneously. Isn’t THIS funny?!
Thank you for your attention.
Are there any questions?
