The Discoveries and Spirit
Posted on: 27.02.2018source...
After the relative intellectual lull at the end of the 20th century – maybe, because of the political turmoil on a global scale, – the new millennium began with a number of both technological and scientific discoveries: elementary particles, gravitational waves, mega-universes, large explosions, black holes, other planets, quantum computers, genome reading, etc.
All this cannot fail to fulfill the soul with optimism and hope – the mind gradually unravels the secrets of nature and the life of future generations will become lighter, more full of matter, meaningful, rich, full of prospects.
Perhaps, only one more thing is to be done.
All these scientific and technological achievements should conform to the essential, the valuable, the contentful – i.e. to the relation between means and purpose.
Regardless of the euphoria around the discoveries, the simple and natural question remains: what overall does they have with the SPIRIT? How do they – the means – help the ultimate and free fulfilment of the supreme purpose in which they serve?
In the scientific and technological presentations not a word is said about this attitude – the means to the goal. What is the common between gravitational waves and psyche – the primary motivation for their discovery? Between Determination to Freedom?
This attitude should be explicitly and permanently mentioned, rather than being suggested that it stands to reason.
