Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has warned that technology can add to the modern confusion that clouds the universal search for happiness.
Speaking to 18,000 people at Melbourne's Rod Laver arena, the Dalai Lama did admit that information has an important role in improving human relations.
"Science, technology and other material facilities in the developed world lead people to believe that their problems will all disappear," he explained. "We have seen that this is not the case."
But the Dalai Lama said that "intelligence itself is the ultimate source of power".
Partly thanks to information "human foresight is improving which will lead to a more peaceful world", he concluded.
Researchers modify genetic code of cancer-killing virus so it can target cells that protect cancer from immune system
Changing the genetic coding causes the infected cancer cells to produce a protein that kills the fibroblast cells that protect cancer
The findings can help improve the current understanding of brain development disorders, such as epilepsy or autism
