Atomic Energy

63 QUESTION: [1960] How do you feel about our continuing with atomic energy tests?

ANSWER: We, in our world, are very much against that, of course. It is a clear indication that humankind has not yet learned to put these discoveries to constructive use. They are still preoccupied with using them destructively. As long as this is the case, their very success will be their own undoing. If the same resourcefulness, powers of intelligence and material were used to unfold this energy in a constructive direction, it could become of tremendous benefit for humankind – but not this way.
