...it nags at him, that, despite mankind's enormous advances over the millennia,there has been no corresponding progress in in understanding the human spirit. For the latter we still seek solace and comprehension in writings and philsophies enounciated centuries ago by people whose standard of the physical world was hopelessly primitive by our standards. This century has produced dozens of great scientitsts. But how long since the world has produced a great prophet? Thus the spiritual life of the neurophysiologist who explores the human brain or the astrophysicist who uses the Hubble telescope to probe the struture of the Cosmos is no more advanced than that of the Galileans or Budhists of 2000 years ago.
