Our currently suggested methodology for investigation of any aspect of body swapping by any of the fraternity members is to start by pledging to follow the Scientific methods even in its rudimentary form as laid out here.
You do not have to carry out all the investigation. You can elect to start by establishing an investigation team with developing terms of reference document
We then expect you and your team to follow the basic path of the scientific method.
Basic Scientific method
Most of us have interacted with the basic Scientific Method in our school days. In case you have forgotten, we will publish it here. To use it, you do not have to be a scientist. You simply need to know how to use the methodology. This means any of our members is in a position to use the methodology. The key is to have a team and to know how to plan an investigation.
We would like each of our members to
Solicit critical assessment from others
Try to defend your position
Ask more questions
Think outside the box.
Accept the level of difficulty in this difficult situation.
The Scientific method outline will be listed below soon, with some basic notes.
Steps in the Scientific Method
1 – Make an Observation
You can’t study what you don’t know is there. Look for patterns, trends, questions, and problems that you don’t understand. Once you find a really interesting pattern that you want to know more about, you move onto the next step.
2 – Ask a Question
Once you find an interesting thing to study, you need to ask a question that can be answered.
3 – Do Background Research
To find out the answer to your question, you need to list all possible answers. Use reliable sources, to do background research.
4 – Form a Hypothesis
A hypothesis is a statement of what you think is the answer to your question. It’s different from the question you formed because it’s answering the question you developed with a specific prediction that you’ll go on to test. A good hypothesis should be falsifiable, meaning that it’s possible to prove it wrong.
5 – Conduct an Experiment
To find an answer to your hypothesis, you need conduct an experiment to test your hypothesis. An experiment can be very quick or take time
Designing an experiment requires some skill but you can get help.
6 – Analyze Results and Draw a Conclusion
Look at the data, and decide whether to accept or reject the hypothesis. You may need to subject your data to further test to determine what the data actually means. Statisticians will assist here. The higher the volume of data you have, the more meaning your are likely to get.
7 – Report Your Results
Report on your results. Allow others to read what you have reported on. Let them review your work and write a series of critiques on it. Defend your work for a while.
Create updates for each section of your work to come up with a better report.
This has been overly simplified to show the very basic approach to the Scientific Method.
