It seems to me that the way to look at it is that the universe is a lot more complicated than we have noticed, and that it's likely that physics will advance as much in the next 100 years as it has in the last 103 (to include 1905 in the range) years. But such advances have nothing to do with religion or metaphysics, but with experimental evidence and hard math problems.
The faulty ideas that do concern us, that do actual damage, lie not in metaphysics but in other realms (principally the 'science' of economics). Even if our allegedly faulty Western metaphysics is entirely replaced in short order, the ideas that cause the damage will remain in place because they are serviceable for those who make the money.
Wow, someone actually believes that. Then uses the lowest common denominator effect of the herd mentality of various civilizations to justify the belief. When in effect, they simply illustrate what happens when individuals without connection to "higher order realities" go about amassing the daily bread, at any expense.
That makes me totally irrelevant, for which i am grateful, as it allows me to work hidden from the herd. I'm sure the all-powerful Church is very grateful to the Alchemists and other hidden metaphysicians, for creating an undercurrent of thought which eventually led to the diminishment of that power.
There wouldn't have been such a cataclysmic upheaval of society in the sixties without the coming together of various powerful new threads of thought, and which included as one thread the metaphysical.
