To myself it means to seek knowledge and understanding of are selves and the world in which we live.
Unfortunately history has shown whenever one tries to connect to god and of his knowledge through men who say they themselves are connected to god through spiritual Wifi ie. GB members of the Jehovah's Witnesses for example, one usually ends up finding a accumulation of only man's acquired knowledge.
Over thousands of years of trying to connect to a god(s) for help and answers, mankind has eventually relinquished himself to seeking answers through scientific investigative acquired knowledge of the world in which we live in.
So far this inherent endeavor has proven better for humanity overall toward improving the existence of living a better life..
