Concern for the symbol has completely disappeared from our science. And yet, if one were to give oneself the trouble, one could easily find, in certain parts at least of contemporary mathematics... symbols as clear, as beautiful, and as full of spiritual meaning as that of the circle and mediation. From modern thought to ancient wisdom the path would be short and direct, if one cared to take it.Simone Weil
It is impossible to repristinate a past world picture by sheer resolve, especially a mythical world picture, now that all of our thinking is irrevocably formed by science.

Leonardo Da Vinci combined art and science and aesthetics and engineering , that kind of unity is needed once again.
Even this miraculous event , which ought to have excited the wonder , the curiosity , or the devotion, of mankind , passed without notice in an age of science and history .
In the hands of science and indomitable energy, results the most gigantic and absorbing may be wrought out by skilful combinations of acknowledged data and the simplest means.
Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure science.
