I did buy a new one, a lot lighter. But I learned that flimsy plastic shovels do not fracture ice so well. Black ice was the issue this morning. Slush is the issue now.

EVOLUTION OF MATTER OR OF CONSCIOUSNESS?

Evolution means the successive emergences in matter of the involved grades of consciousness with each gradation engineering its unique material form. To imagine that sentience emerged from insentient chemicals and that life-forms of superior information content evolved from life-forms of inferior information content is outrageously paradoxical and a shocking assault on the human intelligence.

The greatest limitations of science are:

2) Inability to cogently answer questions related to the origins of existence.
3) Its incapacity to uplift or regenerate nature and individual.
4) Its incapacity to engineer life from scratch.
5) Its inability to predict the future or to know the past of an individual/person.
6) Its incapacity to prevent death.
7) Its inability to revive the dead.
Do we REALLY want people running around engineering life from scratch OR reviving the dead?

EVOLUTION is an act of VOLITION of the inherent consciousness in a system as it emerges from a state of involution with the materialization of its concomitant energy content.

The words "pure" and "impure" as applied to sentient entities are misnomers since being is a mixture of many states or gradations of existence. The parts and planes of a sentient entity can exist in either of the two states - "balance" or "imbalance".

Obviously, Papa, these feats cannot be engineered using material means and spell one of the major limitations - if not the major limitation - of science.

PERFECT BALANCE among the various parts and planes of being means perfect immunity from wear and tear and decomposition with the result being physical immortality. The stupendous feat of attaining to a state of perfect balance cannot be executed via the ordinary consciousness.

MONEY is not a hollow convention; it carries with it a universal consciousness-force (of garnering material resources) that manifests in those who can efficiently galvanize their faculties and adjust these with the environment to yield the best results (within their innate capacity) in terms of material or financial gains. Dishonest means of earning money involve perverse universal mechanisms at work.

EXALTED HUMAN ACTIVITY involves making serious, passionate and sustained attempts at moving into the next plane of consciousness and manifesting that in matter to refine its workings. Oh! enough of unregenerate matter and enough of moving in mindless circles around the same set of puerile and evanescent material goals.

You bypassed my question. Do we really want people to be doing any of this? If not, then why criticize science?

SUPERIOR GENES result in great physical beauty, ease in earning money, sound health, respect for life and nature, recognition of the law of unity in variety, mental sharpness, stable emotions, refined taste, healthy habits and capacity for mysticism.

Perfection means mastery over all aspects of existence and so this would also include under its aegis the capacity to engineer life forms from scratch and revival of the dead.

You are making an assumption that in an imperfect world, that your "perfection" is a value. I disagree. We are simply not outfitted for the social implications of this.

If you do 1,2 and 3 and define 'scratch' to a working definition, we might manage it even before 2014.
5 seems to me like the odd one out.
6 and 7 are inherent to life.

She works in the non-food section.

That expedition and risk just for a cutie!
Is the food really that good?
