LAYMN is about improving quality of life through evidence-based science.
We exists for a single and timeless purpose – to reveal your innate abilities and hone them to the highest degree. Now, what you do with it after that is entirely up to you. If you want to take over the world, we don’t teach that, but give it a go.*
We start from the principle that absolute truths are in short supply. As science philosopher Karl Popper wrote in The Logic of Scientific Discovery:
…no matter how many instances of white swans we may have observed, this does not justify the conclusion that all swans are white.”
However, some truths are more certain than others. At LAYMN we focus on the fundamentals. Science that has over many years proven to be impactful but more importantly reliable. We follow cautious interpretations of the data.
Instead of popular science books, that might not stand the test of time, you will find references to robust volumes of scientific research on LAYMN. Knowledge, that if applied, will provide predictable results.
Furthermore, perhaps this is where we should say that we rely on reputable science journals and peer-reviewed research.
Authority and consensus are heuristics. Not definitive proof of the validity of an idea. Of course, there is a spectrum of authority: if push comes to shove we should listen to a group of scientists rather than a group of non-experts.
About Siim Andres
In my early 20s I did a stint studying chemistry and computer science. At 25 I dropped out of computer science and started my company in digital media publishing. In the first three years it became clear to me that I cared deeply about the scientific process and furthering human well being. So, I enrolled in an undergraduate program in psychology at the highly rated University of Tartu. I’m also a proud graduate from DD Academy, a leadership and self-development program and staunch proponent of Khan Academy.
