Thank you yoko for the very appropriate quote.
The Vedic scriptures advise that knowledge of matter, namely science, must be cultivated alongside knowledge of spirit if it is to benefit humanity.
From the article by Ranchor Prime:
The cobbler lived beneath a tree. Now that we have left the trees far behind, perhaps we are ready to learn again what he - and we - once knew.
Only this time, in the words of the poet T.S. Eliot,
"the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."
