This sentence implies to me that the point is to criticize science; hardly why I garden as I do. I am thinking this may have been a tough part to translate, as the next sentence clarifies the position some...There are always those who try to mix natural and scientific farming. But this way of thinking completely misses the point. The farmer who moves towards compromise can no longer criticize science at the fundamental level.
Still I look to Dr.s Stamets, and Ingham and Tallamy and McKibben, and I see science siding with Sensei while he does not return the favor. I see a place for science, perhaps not so much in my backyard garden, but certainly not to be excluded without reason either. I am swayed by Sensei's edicts more than not, but still find myuself troubled by such stern pronouncements...Natural Farming is gentle and easy and indicates a return to the source of farming. A single step away from the source can lead one astray.
