An Introduction to Counterengineering

Engineering is the dual of science. Scientific exploration enables and requires engineered machines.

Counterinductive science "invents a new conceptual system, for example, a new theory, that clashes with the most carefully established observational results and confounds the most plausible theoretical principles, or imports such a system from the outside science, from religion, from mythology, from the ideas of incompetents, or the ramblings of madmen." (Feyerabend, 1993)

Counterengineering builds machines from the blueprints of madmen.
