Views of science and technology are worldview dependent. Worldviews, especially as our tacit, embodied visions of the world and life rooted in the heart, must be carefully examined as the source of our scientific and technological viewpoints. Science and technology permeate and enrich contemporary society. But we must never forget that for every person, regardless of profession, academic discipline, or personal beliefs or non-beliefs, presuppositions prevail and values have consequences.
