Ignorance is a dormant defilement and not as evident as aggression and greed. Various worldly subjects help us to remedy part of our ignorance, disclosing many worldly truths and helping us to understand many principles. However, science, philosophies and many religions fail to access the most subtle defilements. Moreover, their method is not in conflict with ignorance, thus they cannot overthrow and eradicate ignorance.
