The Secret of Life

Positive_Energy_MAINSTREAM science creates an insurmountable obstacle to understanding the real nature of life because of one single belief issue.

Refusing to recognize life as a distinct force, science blocks all understanding of the nature of reality.

“The greatest problem of philosophy, is the physical and substantial nature of life,” H. P. Blavatsky wrote.

“It is its independent nature, which is denied by modern science—because that science is unable to comprehend it.”

“The reincarnationists and believers in Karma alone dimly perceive that the whole secret of Life is in the unbroken series of its manifestations: whether in, or apart from, the physical body.” 

The best definition of life that modern science can seem to come up with is Herbert Spencer’s old definition that defines the phenomenon, but gives no hint of its cause.

“Life is a definite combination of heterogeneous changes,” Spencer says, “both simultaneous and successive

in correspondence with external coexistences and sequences.”

This consensus is sustained because “most researchers still believe they can build from one side of nature, the physical,” says Biocentrist Dr. Robert Lanza who concludes, crucially: “without the other side, the living.”

A Mother’s Heart

WHEN mother welcomed us back in the house after a long day outside at play, we knew there would be caring and love waiting for us within.

There would  be food, a soothing bath and a bedtime story. Clean pajamas and sheets were as much Mother’s rule as her unconditional love.

But if correspondence and analogy are the rule that points to spiritual knowledge, how does the universe work in the way of loving Mothers?

Nature knows how to care for her human children, but perhaps in these modern, distracting times modern humans have strayed too far from their offspring, self-interestedly allowed children to play too long outside.

The awesome Mother nature has always waited patiently for our return home, healing and assuaging the self-created darkness of separation and materialism, assaulting the tender soul.

Is it because we forget that nature and humanity are really One Being, that we lose our way?

In these often dark times of spirit, we may have overlooked the Golden Rule, or resisted helping others, instead of living unselfishly and harmlessly for  humanity’s needy and down-trodden.

Disease, poverty, hunger and the rise of environmental blights are, it seems, the inevitable result of our separation from the natural, unified state.

The opening proposition of The Secret Doctrine reminds us of the most important Theosophical idea: the “fundamental One Existence, or Absolute Being, must be the REALITY in every form there is.”

“Existence is ONE THING, not any collection of things linked together. Fundamentally there is ONE BEING.”

Big Bang Bounced

galaxy2Big Science and Big Religion have something in common after all. Both would have us believe the universe was fashioned out of nothing. Before the Big Bang there was “nothing.”

Rinse and repeat, you get the opening of Genesis: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,” and “darkness was upon the face of the deep.”

WAKE UP CALL

A Tour of the Calculus author David Berlinsky, PhD writes “The Big Bang has come to signify virtually a universal creed,” (Was There a Big Bang?). In this short video clip, Dr. Berlinsky discusses the willingness of Science to accept criticism:

In fairness, scientists are sometimes willing to admit their miscalculations. Recently a laboratory computer simulation of the Big Bang behaved unexpectedly. Anil Ananthaswamy, writing in the December 10, 2008 issue of New Scientist, describes the event and the reaction of physicist Abhay Ashteka:

“I was taken aback,” he says. He was watching a simulation of the universe rewind towards the big bang. Mostly the universe behaved as expected, becoming smaller and denser as the galaxies converged. But then, instead of reaching the big bang “singularity”, the universe bounced and started expanding again. What on earth was happening?

FORCE DUALITY

For students of The Secret Doctrine this is a welcome question. Ashteka’s big bang experiment is suggestive of “the dual Force that Occultism calls attraction and repulsion” (SD 1:497).  The universe obeys cyclic laws of day and night, sleeping and waking, as H. P. Blavatsky explained in the Second of her “Three Fundamental Propositions”:

This second assertion of the Secret Doctrine is the absolute universality of that law of periodicity, of flux and reflux, ebb and flow, which physical science has observed and recorded in all departments of nature. An alternation such as that of Day and Night, Life and Death, Sleeping and Waking, is a fact so common, so perfectly universal and without exception, that it is easy to comprehend that in it we see one of the absolutely fundamental laws of the universe. (SD 1:13-18)

A UNIFIED WEB

Now cosmologists and physicists are being closely criticized for ignoring these laws. Frontier plasma cosmologists David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill explain their competing theory, clearly Theosophical, on their website Thunderbolts.org

“From the smallest particle to the largest galactic formation,” they say, “a web of electrical circuitry connects and unifies all of nature, organizing galaxies, energizing stars, giving birth to planets and, on our own world, controlling weather and animating biological organisms.” Their conclusion: “There are no isolated islands in an electric universe.”

Sure scientists are willing to recognize their miscalculations and mistakes. But are they willing to publish them?

“Ashtekar wanted to be sure of what he was seeing,” Ananthaswamy reports in NewScientist, “so he asked his colleagues to sit on the result for six months before publishing it in 2006.  And no wonder.”
