IT IS A MISTAKE TO LOOK UPON SCIENCE AS ANTI-SPIRITUAL
Scientific truths concerning the physical body and its life in the gross world can become a medium for the soul to know itself; but to serve this purpose they must be properly fitted into the larger spiritual understanding. This includes a steady perception of true and lasting values. In the absence of such spiritual understanding, scientific truths and attainments are liable to be used for mutual destruction and for a life which will tend to strengthen the chains which bind the spirit.
All-sided progress of humanity can be assured only if science and religion proceed hand in hand.
