Art and Science

Quote

How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection. An artist is emotional, they think, and uses only his intuition; he sees all at once and has no need of reason. A scientist is cold, they think, and uses only his reason; he argues carefully step by step, and needs no imagination. That is all wrong. The true artist is quite rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers.

~ Isaac Asimov, “Art and Science,” The Roving Mind, 1983

Spiritual Science

Quote

The spiritual culture of the land of India owes its origin to the traditional Indian science of Vaastu Shastra found abundantly reflected in the architectural and sculptural expressions of temples, forts, palaces, town and city layout of ancient India. Today it is re-emerging spectacularly and the benefits of this spiritual science are availed throughout the world, by its application in the design and construction of public, residential and religious buildings. This science deals with the eternal process of the subtle energy manifesting into material space or material form. In short, it is the science of manifestation of energy into matter or material form.
