technic - yeah right none of the authorities in this field could agree on something - consequently I lost a lot of time and ended up riding according to my own intuition - I was better served !"
And what is intuition? It would be easy to read an authoratative experiment manual and perform the experiment rather then sitting idle with all the material and waiting for the intuition to click ... won't it save time!
"2. my interest in medecine following the premature death of my 1st husband - I studied alternative medecine after realizing thanks to the Lancet and other medical articles that each time they had discovered something 10 years or less down the road they were actually saying the contrary and jumping on another bandwagon !

I did better with plants and common sense ! and on and on and on......."
Tell this to a person who is got bit by a rabies affected dog... may be he won't take the vaccine... or millions of children saved from polio by polio vaccines... I am a medical/surgery gradute... I can cite many such examples but I dunno how much sense will it make here....
The point is that 'Authorities' word applies to people who are coming from disciplic succesions. It was in reference to our Vedic literature... not some horse trainer or a medical doctor. I was talking about our Rishis, the spiritual gurus.
I dunno if all this makes sense to you. It is just an humble attempt from someone who is still learning from authorities, rather then waiting for intution to click and rediscover the wheel.
