Technology and value fulfillment

“There are, overall, some processes important in man’s development, and in the development of the species.  Efforts, methods that work against value fulfillment phase themselves out, for in the long run they do not work.
“There is nothing wrong with technology.  Man has an innate inclination toward the use of tools, and technology is no more than an extension of that capacity.  When men use tools in accord with the “dictates” of value fulfillment, those tools are effective.  Your technology, however, as it stands, has to some important degree – but not entirely – been based upon a scientific philosophy that denies the very idea of value fulfillment. Therefore, you end up with a technology that threatens to work no longer.”
(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment Vol 2Session 914)
