We have this spiritual nature but it’s being denied, and we hurt at some level because of that. Even scientists have this spiritual nature but it’s being denied. So spiritual people and scientists both say, ‘Isn’t the universe wonderful and complex and infinite and beautiful. Let’s be friends.’ That’s nice, but it ignores the fundamental conflict, and materialism says that spirituality is basically all a lot of crap. We’re not facing that root conflict, and that’s what’s got to be faced.” Facing that conflict, and bringing the reality of human spirituality into the public discourse is the work and the mission of Charles Tart.
