But it is equally important to point out that sprituality doesn't have have
a thing to do with religion. All to often, religions get a walk- over
victory when it comes to sprititual things. I see sprituality as something
that gratifies you emotionally, and that could be consumerism for instance.

Hmm, techno- shamism was once all the rage, but it hasn't evolved at all. I
think that techno- shamanism makes a huge mistake in not involving reason in
spirituality. The computer isn't spirited, but it could be used in a
spiritual way by its user.
Once again, I didn't post the article on the Japanese spiritual approach to
technology to say: this is the best way!
Rather to show some alternative views that perhaps could be built upon.
And let's not forget:
Science is the yoga of the West :-)
