SCIENCE AND RELIGION - BOTH LEADING TO IGNORANCE IF NOT CONTEMPLATED CORRECTLY?

December 03, 2018

19 years since we became witnesses of the 21th century A.D. will come to pass soon. The human brain, as it is now, was inherent in people living 200 000 years ago as well. Our planet is around 4.5 billion years old and we are a product of more than 4 billion years of evolution - from the first microorganism to the "small God" termed "human". According to the accepted biological theory of evolution, nature eliminates all unnecessary qualities that serve the organism no good in its survival, but it also bestows him with new qualities helping the organism in the same undertaking. The bestowing of these gifts by nature is being accomplished in a millions of years course of hard work and progeny of the organism trying to adapt to its environment. Since we humans are the only specie on the planet capable of making choices by free will, we therefore have the capacity to choose the path of our future evolution. Therefore, today we are the deciders of the evolution tomorrow - we can begin to degenerate intellectually by not using our intellect enough, we can continue to sit on the same evolutional step on which we are today today by not pushing our limits, or we can evolve into a more intelligent specie by focusing our attention onto expanding our physical and mental boundaries.

21TH CENTURY - EVOLUTION

Nowadays the path we seem to have taken is the path of stagnation as the majority of people devoted themselves a lot to their fleshly impulses, emotions and desires and are less devoted to their ascending qualities, named reason and intuition, available to us through billions of years of evolution. From the modern man 200 000 years ago till now, we can say that the evolution of organisms was manifesting itself with a high speed compared to the immobility in which we currently reside. This evolutional deadlock is, from one point of view, due to us being so evolved that any further expansion of our brain capacity seems impossible. This however, is not the only cause.


Humanity's ignorance plays a crucial role. The ignorance rooted in the belief that "I know everything." When one believes to know everything, he sees no point in searching for knowledge as he thinks to have had acquired it already. Not many people, compared to the overall population of Earth, had and have realized the fact that we actually know very little and that our ignorance is the foundation of our arrogance. Such people were for example, Albert Einstein, Gottfried Leibniz, Nikola Tesla, Dion Fortune, Helena Blavatsky, Jaggi Vasudev, Manly Hall, Hermes Trismegistus and others. Each of the mentoined, even though using different studying methods, had reached identical conclusion - that life is a phenomenon which is not subject to explanation through any physical tools, regardless of how hard we try to accomplish this task.

RELIGION AND SCIENCE

The two factors which the human ignorance is mostly based on are religion and science, because every human being lives his life following his own beliefs constituted of scientific and religious principles.  Both by themselves they give man knowledge regarding the nature of existence through their own means. Every reasonable scientist however, establishes the underlying idea that religion seems to be more profound compared to his own scientific explanation about existence, for the religious texts, when understood correctly, not literally but as metaphors and symbols, seem to give man good and logical analogies to how everything in Creation operates (see Kabbalah and Hermeticism).


In the last century science had made astonishing progress that gave humanity the possibilities of saving many lives, making our daily activities and chores easier, communicating with ease and ofcourse - understanding the nature of our physical Universe better. The progress in this understanding of the Universe however, seems to have hit its limits decades ago when scientists established everyhing known to us to be a product of something that has nothing to do with what our five senses are capable of perceiving. In other words - the foundation of everything that exists in the Universe is something that cannot be touched, observed, tasted, heard or smelled by any physical means. That which we call "Universe" seems to be space filled with fields (See Quantum Fields) creating all types of particles that make up everything around us. These fields might exist within a single field, or source, that is being observed from different angles, creating the illusion of multiple such fields. Even though that is just a hyptothesis, it will be better if the idea of this unifying field is being used in this article for easier understanding of the reader not familair with quantum physics. This field vibrates, just as water is boiling under a high temperature. Even though water is static and immobile within a vessel, when being heated to a certain degree it begins to take certain forms  - various combination of bubbles of different sizes. In a similar way, the field of the Universe vibrates, and those vibrations are being perceived as physical objects by the senses of our body, which is also part of that same field. This according to science today, is the nature of our Universe - a vibrating field that creates the illusion that we, and everything around us, is created by matter instead of something incorporeal and intangible for us. If we consider this to be the final limit of understanding the nature of our universe, then we are left with many unexplainable questions, the biggest one being "What exactly manifested those fields and gave them the energy to produce everything that we can ever know?" When hitting this scientific limit, man is faced with two choices - to continue hoping that someday in his lifetime, he or someone else will find means through which to observe a comprehensible image of whatever manifested those fields, which seem rather impossible considering the fact that everything IS those fields; or to go on the journey of deciphering the words of the wise philosophers and priests of antiquity in which the knowledge of Creation is said to be stored, by using his own rational and intuitive faculties sophisticated through his scientific studies, to distinguish true from false.


THE MISINTERPRETATION OF RELIGIOUS WISDOM

The sacred religious books give methaphors and symbolisms with which the seeker of absolute knowledge contemplates, but when he leans on the intepretations of those books made by ignorant people, who took everything written in them literally, the seeker is being deviated into the false path of ignorance, believing in something which he has not yet experienced himself in order to know if it is true or not. Only when one realizes that he knows very little, or nothing at all, only when the spark of noble seeking ignites the will, only then one can become "God" by working with the "spiritual" aspects of his humanly constitution - reason and intuition.
