I'm a witch and I call myself a Buddhist monk, choosing poverty, celibacy, and devotion to helping others. But I'm not into conformity or obedience so I don't belong to any order.
Science is a quest for knowledge. Technology is a tool which can be used either to make the world better or to make it worse. Spirituality should provide ethical guidance. When I was a professional scientist I refused to work on military projects. Some feel that quantum mechanics has spiritual implications but that is subjective; an individual may or may not choose to interpret it that way.
I have a PhD in theoretical physics but am now a humorist writer and poet. Age 65. Very interested in progressive politics.
