What is Metrology Close To?

Measurement is that part of science that is nearest to religion, since in this area the scrupulous testing of right and wrong is the issue: one could say that measurement is the nemesis of any incorrect scientific theory and procedure. For this reason throughout history religious movements have appropriated to themselves the symbols of measurement, as expression of the absolute they are searching. But the history of metrology proves that one cannot study measures except in an atmosphere free from any outside consideration; it appears here most clearly that science only can be a law to science. - From a History of Measures by Livio C. Stecchini
