Several others have taken you to task for using English words with your
own private meaning, rather than a generally accepted meaning that can
be shared by all on the list. "Science" is one of those words. Science
is the activity of finding out things that aren't already known. It
involves hypotheses that can be tested by experimentation or
observation. Your conclusions about ligatures are completely predictable
from knowledge of the way that fonts work. No experiment was necessary,
just as it is unnecessary to count stones to establish that four plus
three equals seven.
