Man has himself created the horrific problems which face him today. For hundreds of years man has been trying to "improve" the world, and if there is chaos as he sees it, it is only he himself who is responsible. It is presumptuous beyond measure for the individual human with his puny brain, donated by the courtesy of nature, to have arrogated to himself proprietorship over the whole natural order. We have, in fact, so separated ourselves from the universe and its unimaginably complex system of relationships that the more we try to control the world, the faster it runs away from us. It is only when the individual can view the universe as inseparable from himself that he sees everything in its true perspective. Technology becomes destructive wherever this oneness of the universe is not understood. Most significant, however, is that man's very misunderstanding of the universe is also a necessary aspect of WHAT IS in the inevitable functioning of Totality!
