  1. I understand your critique about the "format" of the post. Perhaps it could have been better with a more detailed analysis,  or perhaps brevity is good.
  2.  However, my intention is to highlight this topic and prompt a discussion, and  disagreements with the ideas themselves (rather than the format and the structure of the post).  So in essence this can of course be a Change my View thread without explicitly having the need to mention that. I guess that is what forum posts are for - to prompt a discussion. 

I have searched on the forum, and while there are discussions about scientific progress and its importance, I haven't seen a post with the argument that I am making i.e. fundamental research (without a set goal) is important (or maybe this was discussed and I just haven't managed to find it).

I take your points, but would rather hear your thoughts about the idea itself :)
