A Quote by Dalai Lama on heart, science, technology, psyche, responsibility, 11th hour, conscience, and community

Perhaps the most important point is to ensure that science never becomes divorced from the basic human feeling of empathy with our fellow beings. Just as one's fingers can function only in relation to the palm, so scientists must remain aware of their connection to society at large. Science is vitally important, but it is only one finger of the hand of humanity, and its greatest potential can be actualized only so long as we are careful to remember this. Oherwise, we risk losing our sense of priorities. Humanity may end up serving the interests of scientific progress rather than the other way around. Science and technology are powerful tools, but we must decide how best to use them. What matters above all is the motivation that governs the use of science and technology, in which ideally heart and mind are united.

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)
