Summary/Abstract: This text is a lecture delivered at the awarding of the title of Doctor Honoris Causa from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, on 24 January 202. The author highlights the horizontal and vertical dimensions of reality, emphasizing three problems: 1. man - matter and spirit; 2. Scientific and religious knowledge; 3. Encouraging signs. The author's thesis are: Man knows he's a child of God, begotten of the dust blessed and animated by divine energy and breath. Between scientific and religious knowledge there is complementarity, not antagonism. Poor faith and few religious concerns of us who claim to be the intellectuals of this nation, have a negative impact on younger generations. And yet, there are encouraging signs about the relationship between science and religion.
