Science can both protect life and invent the weapons that destroy it…[Science,] intelligence, wealth, and physical strength, beauty or power…are all intrinsically neutral tools that can be put to good or bad use. This is precisely why one of the most important elements in Buddhist practice is the development of altruistic behavior.
— Matthieu Ricard, The Quantum and the Lotus, p. 22.
