Science Is Limited: It Is Not the Answer
November 21, 2022
That's why scientists, in their own accord, sought answers from various religious traditions to understand the ultimate reality.
Unknown to the public, many classical thinkers have their hidden, even dark history by attending and witnessing events happening in the psi realm.
The most celebrated cases include that of the couple Marie Currie and Pierre Curie, both recipients of a Nobel Prize, who regularly attended séances conducted by the self-styled medium Eusapia Palladino, an Italian spiritualist who could communicate with the dead.
The other personalities are Sir Alfred Russel Wallace, who teamed up with Sir William Crookes, a Nobel laureate in physics, and shifted his attention to the paranormal world.
To understand the ultimate reality, the founders and giants of quantum physics also went to the study of the world's ancient religious and mystical beliefs, who are known also to immerse in metaphysical and psychic activities.
1. Albert Einstein (Kabbalah);
2. Wolfgang Pauli (Qabbalah);
3. Erwin Schrodinger (Hinduism);
4. Werner Heisenberg (Plato);
5. David Bohm (Krishnamurti);
6. Fred Alan Wolf (Seth);
7. John Hagelin (Maharishi)
8. Nicola Tesla (Swami Vivekananda and Indian Vedas)
Have they found their answers? They were all the more flabbergasted and confused. Core religious teachings speak of parables, metaphors, symbols, stories, and legends whose meanings are not readily known to the people in general.
Their meanings are unintelligible that their disciples had to be taught in secret, away from the public. Scientists dared to understand some fundamental concepts like consciousness, free will, or life but these do not enter into the discussion of physics.
Based on their understanding of physical reality, they continue to crack their brains on how atoms and molecules are able to give birth to these metaphysical concepts, much less explain them by the laws of Newtonian physics, Einstein’s relativity theories, and quantum mechanics.
Yet, in their painstaking efforts to understand the fundamental nature of quantum reality, they have discovered a new horizon, a new world that has in fact rewritten many of our understanding of reality from the atomic to the large-scale structures.
Scientists are in agreement that this, in turn, brings about new remarkable insights and expertise on how we are able to improve our dealings with others and the world around us not only in the area of physics, but in biology, medical science, neuroscience, psychology, psychotherapy, and anthropology.
This is the practical and transformative aspect of continuing a sort of dialogue even if it is done in mathematics, statistics, geometry, and calculus. Without directly answering the question of what reality is, this kind of relentless search makes us move forward.
I'm sure the same revolution of ideas is going on in many of the world's major religious beliefs.
