Let me start off saying that I find beleiving a big waste of mental capacity. Why not just know or acknowledge that you don't know? And indeed for me
believing is not knowing or somehow knowing, it is assuming something to be true or false just because you like it that way.
With regard to spirituality, for me that is feeling one with the Universe. Enjoying the world's beauty and trying to stay as far away from uglyness.
Now I know that there are quite a few people who somehow think that if it is ugly it is good, worthwile. Working your fingers to the bones, now that
is something to be proud of and so on and on. Spirituality to me is also contributing to the beauty of the world in any conceivable way. Stupidity to
me is the most ugly thing in the world.
As to technology, let's not confuse technology with science and what ever thoughts and beliefs scientists may have or not. Modern day science is the
reason why I am not dropping dead at age 45, totally used up by pregnancies, disease and malnutrition. As with everything, science can be abused in a
myriad ways. So? Am I going to use this knife to cook dinner or stab you? Just an example, you can watch tv like you can use opium or just enjoy those
shows you really feel are worthwile.
To me spirituality is how you feel about life and the Universe.
