Many people want to know the ultimate nature of the universe, the ultimate reality. Many seek it through science. But mysticism and contemplation may offer the Way that actually realizes that One, which is Love.
As science seeks a unified theory of everything, of reality as a whole, we may need to focus more on contemplating the nature of consciousness and our own self to find the answer.
Where does spacetime come from? Might our mind generate it as a kind of illusion in consciousness? How might we transcend this illusion in contemplation?
Mass-energy and spacetime may not be two separate things, but One thing manifesting itself in two different ways.
What can contemplation tell us about the speed of light or causality? Perhaps a lot, even All.
Modern physics leads to mysticism. Why? What do we find when we pull apart reality? Perhaps that we can't ultimately pull it apart.
Is there an Absolute? Postmodernism says no. But perhaps there is more nuance to reality.
In the debate between science (or materialism) and spirituality, there are few who embrace both sides of the coin, who can see that they are One.
Some thoughts on how we live in a relative world, which is an expression of a deeper divine Absolute.
God does not have to be at odds with what we learn from science. We need to reinterpret our ideas of God from direct mystical experience, and I think we'll find our science and spirituality are One.
