Maybe it's just me, but I don't want science anywhere near my consciousness. It perverts everything it touches. Look at what our exalted scientists have done to our planet. I can't get clean water without drilling my own well. Rain water on the west coast isn't any good anymore (thanks, nuclear physicists). Gulf of Mexico is fried and China is a stinking wasteland of "developing industrialism".
All in the name of scientific progress...
No, I'm pretty sure the further scientists stay away from the so-called "paranormal" the better off we'll all be. I don't want my soul poisoned any more than it already is, thank you very much.
Don't confuse science with industrialism. Science, and its discoveries, are merely a tool. Human hands wield the final implementation. The Incas, for example, were a society we would consider very spiritual by today's standards; yet they learned how to cultivate the potato from the deadly nightshade family. I dare you to tell me you don't enjoy potatoes in some form.
Likewise all those vaccines we have. Unless you're an anti-vaxxer. Lots of diseases we wiped out. That new fangled world wide web you're using...etc. Oh, and rain water has generally been hit and miss throughout history. There are a lot of waterborne diseases that can be carried in it, and before nuclear we had all the coal fire plants too - look at Europe for their experiences with acid rain.
I'm not saying I don't agree that we've applied much of what we've learned to our detriment, just that we've also applied it to much good. Ultimately it's pretty neutral stuff until people decide how to apply it.
If scientists can definitely prove, or at least close to, the existence of what we consider paranormal
So for the sake of the question it was asked as "what if it was proven true."
