Science Beyond Boon or Bane
With all the scientific discoveries and technology man proved his superiority over the other beings in nature.

We need to distinguish between science and technology, Science is the quest for the truth about nature, It’s aim is not to produce technology but to understand how nature works an discover the tremendous order and intelligence operating around us. The problem exists because of lack of understanding of life and the psychologically primitive state in which we find ourselves. Humanity needs to discover what is called the scientific spirit as the spirit is always more important than the technique, the knowledge or the method in any activity.
