Q. On the cover of A Rush of Blood to the Head, it says; The Scientist is Dan. What does that mean?

The Oracle replies:

Dan Keeling was the guy who signed them to Parlophone. He was their A&R man before he moved on a few years ago. Dan not only bore inspiration for the song of the same name but also the album in terms of being quite harsh with his honest opinions during recording. Referring to him as The Scientist was a compliment even though The Scientist isn't a biographical song about Dan.
