Rosenstock-Huessy: "Science is that arm of the church that is allowed to investigate to find out how much can be learned by treating the universe as dead.'
Most who worship science are lost in the last 1000 years, and cannot see the next (however long it is).
Only after all the gods of sky, and river, Zeus, and Poseidon, etc. had been defeated by The One True God, He Who Reverses The Trend, could mankind approach dead nature in a 'scientific' way ('science' word coined @ 1834).
The future must deal with, not the heavens above of the first 1000 years, nor the waters under the earth of the last 1000, but the earth beneath, we humans, made of dust, of earth beneath.
We must be more comprehensive. The joy is that there is more.
