"This kind of non mission-driven, non utilitarian work addressing purely intellectual issues is not expected to be supported by any U.S. grant agency"

This sad sentence is the last line (before the references) of the paper:

Emergence: Key physical issues for deeper philosophical inquiries 
B.L. Hu 


US is not the only country which would not support the acquisition of pure knowledge. No country in the world would. Most individuals with money in the world would. Why would they?

Don't expect me to say that knowledge is not valued today. It never was actually. Probably not even by you, the reader, if you think hard enough.
