The Sixties Radical- Service to G-d

These words just blew my socks off.

Study of secular sciences can assist indirectly in the service G-d by providing jobs. This study of secular sciences can also directly serve G-d when this knowledge is used  to bring about enlightenment to G-d’s truth and wisdom

How?

When one studies philosophy to see how this pursuit can clarify how one can better serve G-d or the study astronomy to see how the heavens relate to the glory of G-d or better yet if one studies other sciences to quote Rabbi Steinsaltz” in order to devise ways of better fulfilling mitzvahs, his pursuit of these studies constitute a part of a part of his service to G-d” (Opening the Tanya- pages 216-217)
