There is an idea that existence is totally indifferent to us. It is not so. This is a stupid idea that has come into the mind of man because of scientific progress. Science has given many blessings to man, but certain curses have also come in the wake of it. It has made man’s body healthier, more nourished, but it has made man’s soul very undernourished, almost starving.
It has given much, but it has also taken much. What it has given is superficial, nonessential, and what it has taken away is the essential. So science goes on giving us a more comfortable life, but at the same time a tremendous feeling of meaninglessness. Any intelligent person starts feeling that it is pointless to exist. And the, the reason is reason is not that it is pointless that we have completely forgotten the language with which to relate to existence.
