“The one reality science cannot reduce is the only reality we will ever know,”
"Science as it is practiced today is clearly not sufficient to guide
humanity to a socio-ecology that is dynamic and harmonious – one that
can mimic a complex ecosystem capable of thriving for hundreds of
thousands of years, like a forest or a coral reef – or even the tens of
thousands of years that some indigenous peoples managed without any
reliance at all upon the scientific method.
On the contrary, scientistic hubris could just as well lead to our
extinction. The scientific method gave humans unprecedented power over
matter – and we used it to make possible the relentlessly efficient
machinery that is already facilitating rapid climate change and the
earth’s sixth great extinction of species."
