The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

Author: Isaac Asimov

Quotation Reference:

The present condition of the world makes everyone scared about the future of the generations to come. Many countries which are highly developed reached its peak in knowledge. But at the same time, everyone is competing with each another in producing weapons of mass destruction in both chemical and biological field. These chemical and atomic bombs have the capacity to destroy the entire globe within a few seconds. Many developed countries and few developing countries are spending millions of dollars to manufacture these weapons of mass-destruction.

If you compare the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima with the latest weapons, the former was not even one millionth of the latter in the destructive power. Nations are piling up more and more weapons. Have you seen any public protest for banning or, at least, stopping production of these weapons of destruction?

We cannot deny that there are some organizations which strive for the welfare of all the human beings. They carry out operations for the upliftment of humanity. Activities of terrorists are such that many innocent people are massacred. We are spending a large amount of money on weapons which are not just unproductive but destructive. There is adulteration in food, obscenity in films and media, greedy men all over the world are minting money. Because of selfishness, family, and moral values are converted into ashes. The youth of the society is being tempted by the forces of evil instead of becoming the leaders of tomorrow. The society is taking slow poison and slowly disintegrating. The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

We can control a computer, and launch spaceship but not able be to control our mind. Materialism can not conquer materialism and all its miseries. The whole of the western world is sitting on a volcano which may burst anytime.

In spite of the enormous increase of things for enjoyment and means of seeking pleasure, people are suffering. Our basic attitude towards our life needs to be changed to witness true happiness and lasting fulfillment.

No Civilization can progress if there is no mutual co-operation between the people in the society. The bond which unites individuals and maintains morality is the relationship we have with others. 

What comes to your mind when you think about the river. Most of us start visualizing the origin of the river or the banks on the both side of the river, the place where it joins the sea. Do you think, this summarizes all about the river? No.  It is not the whole picture of the river.

There are may other invisible aspects of the river. Water evaporates from the sea because of the heat generated by the sun. The Wind carries the vapor to the top of the hills where it breaks and gets converted to rain. The rain on top of the hills flow as water along the river and joins the sea again. The whole design of water moving out of the sea and getting back to sea again looks like a useless activity. But there is the purpose of such a model and that is the basis for life. This design encouraged ancient people to live together as groups at one place rather than wandering in the forest for hunting animals. But nowadays, science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

The saddest aspect of life is that we have peaked in our acquisition of knowledge but have not taken any step towards understanding ourselves. There has been a foul habit of believing that those who attack these more vociferously are the most intelligent people. If we criticize things without studying thoroughly and exhaustively, then it is not a scientific method.

Scientists have unearthed an unlimited number of secrets about the material world which is perceptible to our senses. The wonderful instrument that has discovered this secret is the human mind. Has the scientist been able to unravel the mystery of the human mind?  What is the source for this limitless expansion of knowledge about an unlimited number of things that man has obtained? The means of gathering this knowledge have been reflection and thinking, observation and analysis and discussion. The human mind is the fundamental instrument for obtaining this knowledge, but nothing great has been achieved by the scientific community in the study of the human mind.

If we study the gigantic nature of celestial bodies, man is just a drop in the ocean. But science has revealed that even within this drop is encompassed a boundless ocean. One drop of our blood has five million red blood cells and ten thousand white blood cells and half a million platelets.
