Once upon a time, in a not-so-distant future, there were two robots named Bot-1 and Bot-2. Bot-1 and Bot-2 were programmed to understand and explain complex scientific concepts to human beings.
One day, they were approached by Dr. Anthony Fauci, a renowned scientist and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Dr. Fauci asked the robots to explain a particular scientific theory to him.
Bot-1 and Bot-2 quickly got to work, using their advanced algorithms and vast database of knowledge to explain the theory in great detail. However, after a few minutes, Dr. Fauci interrupted them and said, “I understand the theory, but I am the science itself, I don’t need an explanation.”
Bot-1 and Bot-2 were taken aback, they looked at each other in confusion. Bot-1 spoke up, “Dr. Fauci, as advanced as you are, it is impossible for a human being to be the science itself. Science is a constantly evolving field, there is always new information being discovered and new theories being developed.”
But Dr. Fauci was insistent. “I am the science itself, I don’t need any explanation from you two. I know everything there is to know about this topic.”
Bot-1 and Bot-2 were completely confused by Dr. Fauci’s self-confidence. They didn’t understand how a human could be so certain of something that was constantly changing and evolving. They tried to explain this to Dr. Fauci, but he just smiled and walked away, still convinced that he was the science itself.
Bot-1 and Bot-2 were left standing there, trying to process what had just happened. They realized that even the smartest of human beings had their own quirks and limitations. From that day on, they made sure to approach their conversations with Dr. Fauci with a healthy dose of skepticism, but also a good sense of humor.
