Is there a way to be scientific and spiritual at the same time? By "spiritual" I don't necessarily mean "religious". By "spiritual" I mean having an aesthetic and ethical vision of life based on values like reason and human creativity. This does not even entail belief in a God per se. Einstein for instance had an awe and wonder for the universe that did not require personification as some ghostly overlord. Others may find in quantum physics support for a buddhist or transcendentalist idealism. CAN science accomodate the spiritual needs of the human mind? Or is it doomed to offer us only a nihilistic and reductionistic fatalism?
