Wouldn’t that lead to a very different world? Now, I’m not suggesting that any of us can ever hope to have the genius that Einstein possessed, but it’s possible that the traditional Neo-Confucian approach to understanding the universe (that I’ve described in earlier posts) might offer a few insights into seeing the same natural wonder that Einstein saw all around him. Albert Einstein saw no distinction between science and religiousness. Albert Einstein saw no distinction between science and religiousness. Well, that may have been the case for Einstein himself, but it certainly hasn’t been true for most scientific voices of the past few hundred years. Bacon’s favorite metaphor of the natural world was that of a powerful woman who needed to be conquered and subdued. I am come in very truth leading to you Nature with all her children to bind her to your service and make her your slave.[3] [1] Quoted by Ravindra, R. (2008).
