“Scientific materialism and progress have undermined the foundations of all traditional religions, and it is clear that no society can exist without religion. All hopes for the synthesis of science and religion are dashed by the obvious death of matter, vanity and cruelty. The spread of which cannot be stopped. However, we are left with love as a compensation. ”
“The metaphysical mutation operated by modern science leads to individualism, vanity, hatred and desire. Unlike pleasure, desire is inherently a source of suffering, anger, and misery. All philosophers, not only Buddhists, not only Christians but all who deserve to be called philosophers knew about it and taught it. The way out proposed by the utopians from Plato to Huxley, including Fourier, is to appease desire and suffering by satisfying them immediately. Advertising and erotic society in which we live seeks to organize the desire, to spread it on an incredible scale, restraining its satisfaction within the intimate sphere. In order for such a desire not to cease, it is necessary to increase the desire, it is necessary that it does not stop, spreading, devouring human life. ”
