A Quote by Dalai Lama on science, technology, conscience, and compassion

Within the short space of my own lifetime, the impact of science and technology on humanity has been tremendous. Although my own interest in science began with curiosity about a world, foreign to me at that time, governed by technology, it was not very long before the colossal significance of science for humanity as a whole dawned on me---especially after I came into exile in 1959. There is almost no area of human life today that is not touched by the effects of science and technology. Yet are we clear about the place of science in the totality of human life---what exactly it should do and by what it should be goverened? This last point is critical because unless the direction of science is guided by a consciously ethical motivation, especially compassion, its effects may fail to bring benefit. They may indeed cause great harm.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, science, essence, mediocrity, and modernity

Modern science, e.g. Darwinism etc., has a profound and nearly (to itself) unutterable metaphysical fallacy in terms of which it tries to think:  all law is to it inherently extrinsic, there is no kind of intrinsic or essential or "internal" lawfulness as such (and therefore there is no demand, no place and no tolerance for attempts to think essentially, intrinsically, in a cultured and self-reflective or profoundly critical/a-priori way).  Extrinsicalism has made both "science" and "capitalism" into exoteric and pedestrian pursuits in which one not only does not have to be any kind of extraordinary genius, but it may well be a preeminent advantage to be a mediocrity, to have as little culture and depth and critical strategy as possible.

A Quote by Wilhelm Reich on orgone, orgonomy, science, research, medical, health, importance, truth, discovery, fact, natural, political, politics, and distortion

In the course of the history of natural science, it always happens that profound or true thoughts or true facts were always either distorted or flattened out. The danger, especially of distortion, is particularly great in the case of orgonomy. We must be scientific, we cannot be political in these matters. And I personally declare that I will be the first to fight with all my strength, with whatever I've got against such a distortion of our principles.

A Quote by Walter Russell on science, healing, health, mind, matter, nature, law, god, man, love, and supernatural

There is a scientific explanation of healings by the power of Mind over matter which demonstrates that such healings are not miracles, but are within Nature’s law which cannot be transcended by either man or God. The Fact that they were beyond man’s comprehension did not prove that they were supernatural – for an airplane or radio would have been thought supernatural to dwellers in places far removed even one generation ago.

A Quote by Walter Russell on jesus, science, scientist, light, radio, radar, and television

"Jesus was the consummate scientist. He knew the omnipresence of Light which we have expressed in radio, radar and television, but all He could say in His day was: ”I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.“

There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.

A Quote by Richard Feynman on science, physics, curiosity, innovation, and great mystery

To decide upon the answer is not scientific.  In order to make progress, one must leave the door to the unknown ajar---ajar only.

Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)
