Benedict is at it again:
“Contemporary life gives pride of place to an artificial intelligence ever more enslaved to experimental tecnhiques [sic], thereby forgetting that all science should safeguard mankind and promote his tendency to authentic goodness.”
“Letting yourself be seduced by discovery without paying attention to the criteria of a deeper vision could lead to the drama the myth [of Icarus] speaks of.” (source)
I guess he’s trying to tell us that ignoring the “deeper vision” leads your wax wings to melt and you’ll never get to “authentic goodness.” Crystal clear, that is.
Funny how the Pope has to appropriate imagery from a polytheisitic culture to make his point.
