If human being builds something that contradicts usefulness of anything for which there is provision in existence then it can only result in destruction. For example – we humans used natural resources for building war material, but from this we couldn’t do anything apart from destroying Earth and destroying human race. This perhaps is becoming clear to all scientists gradually. If they had understood this earlier then human race could have become happy and prosperous. A river crosses many piers before reaching the ocean. Maybe this step by step process is the course of destiny. First it was mystical idealism, which gave some relief but couldn’t suffice human being. Thereafter we came into the grip of materialism. The relief from here as well couldn’t suffice for achieving happiness and prosperity for all human beings. That is the crisis of today. Humankind couldn’t find complete relief from these two ideologies. Naturally a third step is needed.
