Method, Science and Religion

Why does a comparison between science and religion seem to lack any substance? Well, today we are plagued by a priority of the method by which we know a fact. So while the method of religion (revelation) seems quite shallow, apparently there is nothing to compare. But method is not the only parameter and, after…

The Feeling of Reality

Earlier this year I read of the experience of the sensual entity gravitational wave. And this experience came forward as the discovery of this entity. While I have been critical over the ‘discovery’ of entities through science in the past, I have now resolved much of my frustration in qualifying physical entities as distinct from…

Validation, Facts

It is not always clear to me what scientific gossip is getting at, while I feel something essential in the speech of a religious person—in as much as they talk from experience. Yet, when a creation apologist constructs an exhibition in which men and dinosaurs live together, he is instead fighting a factual battle. And…

A Universe

The pursuit of physics is one of building a universe by describing it in terms of physical entities. Compare this with the pursuit of the Theosophical Society which constructs a history in reconciling theologies. Whether manifested in the physical, theological or otherwise, this universe building I want to theme in spirit something similar to imperialism.…

Universal Language

“We describe reality. Or at least our descriptions are compatible with reality. Just look what we have uncovered!” Or “We live the righteous life. Just look how they live. Their world is disgusting. We live in the true world.” Or “My languages are just several of many. And each are just as right or wrong…

Physicalism, Dissonance

I look at an apple and experience it in two ways. In one case I experience the apple as a united sensual experience, and in another case the apple itself dissolves once sight of apple and taste of apple are stripped from it as independent. The object apple feels like something hypothetical. Yet, physical entities…

My Own Understanding

22.05.2011, Who could believe the universe fiddles a congruent song that they have been granted permission to hear? Who could be so audacious as to assume that their united front is the united front of all the universe—and that they are not one of the thousand thousands which stand outside? Who could believe that the…

Science, Religion

I enjoy reading philosophy in that it is an activity. The same cannot be said of science—reading on a scientific discovery. I do not know what I am supposed to do once I have read it. What does the author of the article suppose I do? “This observation has proven the theory true”—But what matters…
