if it only affects a few people, why are the rest of us forced to pay? You can argue that there are too few people with scientific curiosity. Or the projects are too large/expensive.

but you keep repeating it’s “worthless” but I’ve given you examples that show 1) that attitude towards data is changing and 2) people do/pay for things

just because they bring joy: out of curiosity (eg data analysis), beauty (eg art), or some unexplainable need to measure and categorize.

again, people already pay for “worthless” things. People will pay for basic science out of pure curiosity. And certain people collect data just because. Not all basic science is CERN or ITER.

"What started as a combination of personal curiosity and a lifelong habit of record-keeping has evolved into an invaluable source of data for scientists of all stripes."

The general trends I see are data is getting cheaper to collect and store & more open to the public to use. & where data is not open (23andMe) it is being researched by the owners of the data.

Who share their insights.
970d
The most important science is at CERN, and other particle colliders.
970d
sure, but that's a minority of basic funding. & like ITER & most gov projects over budget. other topics (AI, medicine, biology, electronics) are either cheaper or closer to applications.

So as for the origin of life.

Time crystals! Crystals that it took time to make. Sorry, they exist in time. No wait, there is time involved somehow! There, that explains it.
