"If the culture teaches people to be materialistic, the culture will then find itself in the position of supplying everyone with materialistic needs and wants, and people's materialistic needs and wants cannot be satisfied. The only kind that can be satisfied is spiritual.

"If you turn people on to Spirit they can live together cheaply and economically for the common good... but if they're grouped together on a material sort of system then they'll fight over the dwindling supply. That's what I'm coming out to say is that we must be spiritual... that that's the only thing that is going to help man over this weird little atomic-chemical hump that we've got ourselves into."

Stephen, 1970
