science (and the brain) as limited or ...

Intriguing issue indeed.  If one thinks of science as aspiring to Truth, then it is indeed obviously limited; there is so much we don't understand.  If one thinks of it as creating possibilities that have no previously existed (cf Science matters ... how?) , then it does, as you say, seem to be doing pretty well.  Maybe one could say the same thing about the brain?
