This is my dream. What spins in my mind almost obsessively sometimes...

Eclecticism is not only what I want to see here, in this petit discussion place, but what I deeply wish for the future of sciences in their evolution towards a higher level of understanding, consciousness and why not saying it: spirituality. "
