     Chapter III         THE TWO NEGATIONS         In the field of physical science, we are familiar with two terms, namely, pure science and Applied Science. In Pure Science one is concerned with investigations into the workings of Nature and the discovery of laws governing it. Applied Science is Technology where one's attention is focuss-ed on applying the laws of nature with particular reference to creating such conditions as would be conducive to greater physical comfort for the human being. In the sphere of spiritual living, too, there are these two principles at work which may be termed as Philosophy and Psychology. It is hardly necessary to state that Philosophy is an inve
