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.
Some think we have to qualify for God's Love, that it is something God only gives through religious obedience. Mysticism says not quite.
Paul talks about "Christ" as the One, and persons as the parts that make up that One.
General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are at polar odds with each other, and many physicists are trying to reconcile them in a grand unified theory. Perhaps they are not meant to be unified. Maybe unity is found elsewhere.
Many traditions have a messiah who is thought will come to redeem them and the world. There is perhaps a mystical interpretation of this messianism.
Might our universe be the ongoing unfolding of a black (white) hole Singularity, or One? And might we be that One reflecting on its Self?
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.
At times these seem to be at odds, but at the deepest level they may be One.
