This is not what happens (or should not happen) using a scientific approach, as you should know.
lol of course not.
but when you have a absence of data, unknown value, a null in computer terms,,
you cant presumed what value it is with certainly or if it exists in cases
it will remain that way undertill it is proven with fact, not speculation.
they can speculate and suggest it may be this value,
for it may be even could be a million to one, but it may not be true.
speculation doesnt not prove anything but sometimes its a usefull tool in problem solving.
no matter how good they try and present the OCT for example, it wont be fact until someone can prove it with valid evidence fact.
a null and unknown you cant suggest something is not it,
even though it could be a trillion to 1 longshot for example..
its like that diaster in japan, they didnt use all data, flawed in the data collecting, they discluded data, and thus design a system and said it basically was zero risk, and years later opps all those nuclear reactors melted down
