We are in the 21st century, a century (Lipovetsky, 1996) a century that marks new directions in terms of research, information transfer, economic exchanges, and so on. The new fields that have emerged, for example the neuroscience, the medical fields, and so forthare at the intersection of several disciplines, which leads us to believe that they are not only interdisciplinary fields, but also trans-disciplinary fields.Today we are faced with new discoveries that lead us to ask, as we did in the past, what is the purpose of life and man on earth: the immortality or the enlightenment?
