That's a good question. Is science faith-based?
Yes, you can not observe without a theory.
Norwood Russell Hanson (1924–1967) was an American philosopher of science. Hanson was a pioneer in advancing the argument that observation is theory-laden, that observation language and theory language are deeply interwoven.
'Where' is the image in the mind? What 'space' is the image in your mind in? Where is the dream? Where is your inner voice? It's not the same spacetime then where the electrical and chemical pulses are in the brain, causing this image or the dream. The image you see in your mind's eye is in a completely different dimension than where the chemistry in the brain is. (Maarten Vergucht)
