26 – The Obliteration of the Spirit by Science …

How amazing it is that inquiry into the spiritual dimension of human nature … the intuitive knowledge that we are connected to ‘something’ or ‘someone’ larger than us that gives us life, order, direction, purpose, wonder, and the capacity to be aware of our own awareness … is inhibited by ‘that other religion’ we call science. And thus, to ponder about the meaning of what we call our soul, our spirit, our mind, we are left either to the machinations of men in cloaks who perpetuate beliefs made-up thousands of years ago to control the human mind or to the oftentimes good-intentioned seekers exploring creative venues of understanding.

The world of our feelings, emotions, and passions; the world of our happiness and sorrows, of our need to love and be loved, of the intangible and the immeasurable; the world of the overwhelming brutality and beauty of Nature; the world of visions and dreams; the world in which love is born and where hate is instigated; the world in which concepts like Peace, Revolution, Creativity, Liberty, Hope, Awe, begin to take a physical shape, this world is arrogantly repressed by the physical side of science simply because it can neither be measured nor put into equations. In its jealousy for measurement and reduction, the physical sciences have turned into a dogmatic enterprise that presumes it can decide what Reality is, and what it is not.

Yet hidden behind their arrogance, there exists a conspicuous Reality that encompasses not only the objective dimensions of Nature … the measurable dimensions of atoms and systems and bodies … but also its subjective complement … the immeasurable dimensions of Creativity, Desire, the need to bond, the will to exist; a Reality where object and subject, body and spirit, complement each other so creatures like you and me can self-generate and self-reflect.

Reductionism, the methodology dating back to the philosophic thought of ancient Greece, continues to dominate our current scientific method, thus perpetuating the belief that the only way man can understand anything in Nature is by reducing it to its minutest parts. This approach is obviously limiting since under its hegemony science has not been able to explain the source of Life nor what more than 90% of our Universe is.

Our wonderment at the unending creativity of Life; our amazement at the inner knowledge of cells that know how to re-generate, organize, and create a mind; our astonishment at the instinctive knowledge of the body to take control of the entire organism when the mind is wandering or searching; our surprise at the realization that we can reflect on our past to plan our future; our awe in the presence of the beauty and destructiveness of Nature, these are subjective characteristics of the human Spirit yet grounded on the reality of the objective world. The dimension of the human spirit, of the mind, of the soul, cannot exist without the dimension of the atomic elements from which it sprouts into being. And equally, the dimension of the atomic elements cannot exist without the spiritual dimension that gives them order and incites them to bond and congregate into amazingly complex, self-generating and transformative forms of existence. Yet the physical sciences continue to claim that to know the nature of Reality only the objective world is worthy of exploration.

Is it not science, one of our noblest enterprises, supposed to open the mind instead of limiting it?
