    in the scientific process, if we lost all the modern knowledge we had today, which would be more important in rediscovering it?


    the mental capacity?

    or

    the material capacity?

    mental is obviously relating to mind and material is to less intelligence.


    mental capacity in respect to having the ability to create, recreate and or to be innovative.

    material capacity in the sense that material things having the ability to create, recreate, and/or to be innovative.

    Without the mental you don't get the material

    ???
    What's the difference? Knowledge is knowledge. And so far mental has not been shown to be separate from material.

    I think @ChristineM provided the simply answer in her post above.

    but to clarify a word bias, mentality is a synonym for spirituality.

    No its not. To hold that spirituality is a thing it must be imagined using the mentality, it is not the mentality

    mind is not jewish or atheist. the word was influenced by previous understanding and usage.

    your culture, like my culture, was influenced by past cultures, like it or not.


    cooking isn't french any more/less than italian. its simply a different way of doing the same thing. in this case it was simply a different way of saying the same thing.

    alchemy is a science about mind, there are a lot of mystery cults that used such methods.

    carl jung used it in his psychoanalysis

    Are you sure that's not the other way around?

    Granted, I have a word bias.

    Yes (see Joseph Campbell); and symbolic things can create abstract and material things (see George Orwell).

    et. al.
