Illuminations

"People can not be separated from their environment. Living consciousness is not an isolated unit. Human consciousness is increasing the order of the rest of the world and has an incredible power to heal ourselves and the world: in a certain sense we make the world as such, as we wish" - Lynne McTaggart

"Some people seek meaning in life through personal gain, through personal relationship, or through personal experiences. However, it seems to me that being blessed with the intellect to divine the ultimate secrets of nature gives meaning enough to life. Our destiny is to become like the gods we once worshipped and feared. But our tools will not be magic wands and potions but the science of computers, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and most of all, the quantum theory" - Michio Kaku

"By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, we may turn the public mind which way we will. The human race will then become one family, and the world will be the dwelling of rational men & women" - Adam Weishaupt

"How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection? That is all wrong!" - Isaac Asimov

"The image of the cosmos must change with the development of the mind and knowledge; otherwise, the mythic statement is lost, and man becomes dissociated from the very basis of his own religious experience. Doubt comes in, and so forth. You must remember: all of the great traditions, and little traditions, in their own time were scientifically correct. That is to say, they were correct in terms of the scientific image of that age. So there must be a scientifically validated image. Now you know what has happened: our scientific field has separated itself from the religious field, or vice-versa. This divorce this is a fatal thing, and a very unfortunate thing, and a totally unnecessary thing" - Joseph Campbell

"Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality" - Carl Sagan

"The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence" - Nikola Tesla
