28/10/2008 11:28:00 Pursued a path of knowledge that takes away from true knowledge Conquered the world but forgot to experience something.  Nowadays- Shut self off from nature. Don’t really understand it anymore. Does  not really include self. Physical. Can be manipulated and not try to become excellent Ari.- Being in all beings. You are nature.  Losing at the sight of nature and one’s self At the sight of nature- some think that physics is the last way to go but no no, it is  a reduction to a certain gaze of nature, and lose at the sight of where you are. They do  not come out of a comprehensive view.  Reduced nature and humans/ non nature Mind if one kind of substance and the body is one kind of something next  week? The whole Need to break up reality and analyze it. Distinguish elements and see how they  act together.  Everything is arranged in an order. Should look at everything from a scientific  pov. It explains and allows us to transform in to technical knowledge. Scientific  perspective is a partial perspective. Science will be guided be instrumental reasons.  There will be an end. If you want to achieve that, do that. Science enables what you are  doing.  Knowledge and practice are whole and nature is homogeneous Homogeneity of nature We are homogeneous with nature. We our minds are a part of nature. Animal  achievements. Gives you the possibility to think that you are homogeneous with animals  in the emotional side?  Give moral status to animals as well. Animals pursue excellences in some sense.
