Here's a question. Could you foresee a situation in the future in which scientists might want to or have to fall back on activities more philosophical than currently? Some sort of catastrophe or grinding to a halt for the scientific method?
Economic collapse might do it. If your budget only covers an armchair, and no lab equipment, you might have to go back to metaphysics.

How about.........this started happening.....any time anything was measured in any way, the answer was different each time?
