A Quote by Ken Wilber on cosmos, kosmos, cosmology, kosmology, and reductionism

Many cosmologies have a materialistic bias and prejudice: the physical cosmos is somehow supposed to be the most real dimension, and everything else is explained with ultimate reference to this material plane. But what a brutal approach that is! It smashed the entire Kosmos against the wall of reductionism, and all the domains except the physical slowly bleed to death right in front of your eyes. Is this any way to treat the Kosmos? No, I think what we want do to is Kosmology, not cosmology.
