THE UNDISCOVERED SCIENCE
“Science” vs. “Spirituality”
Science: The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
Spirituality: The quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.
The above definitions were quoted from en.oxforddictionaries.com.
Look at 2 words in the “Science” definition: “intellectual” and “physical”. Now, replace those 2 words with the words “experiential” and “inner” respectively and we have a re-definition of “spirituality”:
Spirituality: The experiential and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the inner world through inner observation and experiment.
Yes, to me, “science” and “spirituality” are similar, except that science deals with the outer, objective world whilst spirituality deals with the inner, subjective world. Science and spirituality both deal with practical activity, and both are studies of behavior through observation and experiment.
The Undiscovered Science
Spirituality is the undiscovered science, or at least the yet-to-be- discovered science.
One of the basic tenets of most spiritual systems is Oneness. We have always been One, we’ve always been connected, and this has been the experience and teaching of the spiritual masters who have walked this earth.
This is what it is – the truth although not proven by present scientific methods. But science is on the go, it’s a work-in- progress. Spiritual truths may not be discovered or proven by science at this stage of scientific evolution but eventually these truths will be found and proven.
The Limitations Of Present Scientific Methods
For scientists who study and investigate spiritual phenomena,
it is necessary that they have a consciousness of spirituality. For in order to “see” or “sense” something, in this case, the “proof ” of a spiritual phenomenon, one must necessarily be conscious of it in some way.
This is like we humans with our 3-dimensional vision or consciousness who can only perceive “reality” in 3-dimensions and not more. So any discovery of the “truth” of spiritual principles will surely be limited by the scientist’s level of consciousness.
In the same way, we must also consider the limited capabilities of present scientific instruments which were built and designed by 3-dimensional minds to measure phenomena using 3-dimensional measurement standards. With such limited utility, can present scientific instruments ever detect and measure spiritual “truth”?
At the end of the day, success in proving any spiritual phenomenon will be determined by the corresponding evolutions of humankind and of science.
Nonetheless, there is a field of science that has opened up new possibilities of proving some spiritual principles: quantum physics.
A Quantum Phenomenon – Matter Is Both Wave And Particle
“The particles that are the very building blocks of all things, are
in all possible locations until observation/measurement causes them to choose a specific position.” ~ Kevin Michel, Moving Through Parallel Worlds to Achieve Your Dreams
What the above statement means is that the “stuff ” or quantum energy that are the building blocks of matter exists as waves until…
