    Abstract

    Readers who are committed to a traditional approach to science with its materialist foundation may find it difficult to relate to the reflections provided here; there is, at times, a strained relationship between a scientific search for truth and a spiritual search for Truth. Spirituality implies that “reality�? is not exclusively material. Furthermore, for many, spirituality is equated with religion, and religion, with its foundation in faith, dogma, priesthoods and holy texts may be regarded as in opposition to science with its focus on objectivity, empirical investigation and the scientific community as the final arbitrator of matters of truth.
