Life Goes On

BETWEEN Science and Theology is a bewildered public, fast losing all belief in man’s personal immortality, in a deity of any kind, and rapidly descending to the level of materialism.

From the remotest antiquity, mankind as a whole have always been convinced of the existence of a personal spiritual entity, within the personal physical man.

This inner entity was more or less divine, according to its proximity to the crown—Chrestos [Christos, The Higher Self].

The closer the union, the more serene man’s destiny, and the less dangerous the external conditions. This belief is neither bigotry nor superstition, only an ever-present, instinctive feeling of the proximity of another spiritual and invisible world.

This world, though it be subjective to the senses of the outward man, is perfectly objective to the inner ego.

The foregoing words were written in Isis Unveiled, (Ch. 12) by H. P. Blavatsky her first first major work on Theosophy—examining religion and science in the light of Western and Oriental ancient wisdom, and occult and spiritualistic phenomena.

Science or Spirituality

"Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind."

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS are rising in many scientific circles that are beginning to hint at a new non-reductionist and spiritual view of life.

We are awed by the sincerity, wisdom and compassion of the brave men and women of these new frontier sciences.

The materialistic sciences, H. P. Blavatsky predicted “will be driven out of their position, not by spiritual, theosophical, or any other physical or even mental phenomena.”

“But simply by the enormous gaps and chasms that open daily — and will still be opening before them.”

“One discovery follows the other,” she wrote, “until they are finally knocked off their feet by the ninth wave of simple common sense.” Continue reading

Conscious Without A Brain

CONSCIOUSNESS is still considered, by most neuroscientists, to be located and created entirely in our physical brain tucked safely inside our skulls.

This persistent worldview is reinforced by our body language in describing thinking, by people pointing upward to their heads.

But native cultures never engaged in such scientific skull-duggery.

The Native American view, according to tradition, always deferred with hand over the heart to that revered organ as the real seat of the moving force thought.

Ritual divination, mythical Norn, and crystal ball were not required.

Confusing matters even more are the familiar ‘gut-feelings’ we often have, seeming thoughts that recent studies show are more often than not accurate depictions of a situation, condition, person’s character, or even foretelling of some future event.

Undeterred, many neuroscientists continue to diligently catalog what they insist are ‘the neural correlates of consciousness’ in our brain, and seem determined to prove those billions of correlates are the creators of our thoughts and feelings, located exclusively in the fatty workshop between our ears.

In their view when we die everything disappears forever — including our soul and our individual ‘I am I’ awareness. But this reductionist view of mind and consciousness is losing favor with many research scientists on the leading edge today, and is about to radically change.
