Science is growing and the subject of science vs spirituality and science vs religion is becoming more interesting and controversial day by day. Especially in the field of quantum physics, a huge revolution is happening.
As science goes deeper into reality, it becomes more inclined to spirituality. Now, scientists are being quite interested in cosmic consciousness and the cosmic brain.
What is Cosmic Consciousness?
The term cosmic consciousness was coined by the psychiatrist Richard Maurice Bucke in 1901. According to him, cosmic consciousness is a higher form of consciousness than an ordinary man’s consciousness. He is trying to indicate the cosmic consciousness as the awakened man’s consciousness.
This cosmic consciousness tries to explain things from the higher dimension. From this dimension you don’t belong to the body, rather, you belong to the cosmos and you become immortal and can remain everywhere in the cosmos. You are just consciousness eternal life and have the awareness that I’m the god and also the universe.
Science Vs Religion
The religions appeared first and then science evolved, so all the religious experience is now becoming unscientific for us. But as science is growing, it is more inclining to spirituality and gradually religious experiences are being true.
Classical Science ignores god but quantum physics cannot surely ignore the god. The well-known scientist Albert Einstein says that the more I deeply study science, the more I started to believe in God.
The universe and life are so vast that science can’t explain them. The universe is full of mystery, we know less than a drop in the ocean.
The things that remained to be known are unexplainable. As the scientist tries to solve one problem, they find that more big problems have arisen and more dimension are opened to be discovered. The universe is full of mystery and we know almost nothing about the universe.
The universe is becoming more and more mysterious every day. Quantum physics is trying to get the ultimate truth. But as they open one door that leads to the more big door, that opens more dimensions to discover.
Quantum Physics and Spirituality
Science is the seeking of truth while spirituality is the experience of truth.
Before these 120 years, science didn’t support spirituality and was denying the existence god but within these 120 years something just the contrary has happened. God has not expired, rather God has become more significant.
The matter and the materialism are now dead. The only exists here is energy, nothing else. Everything is energy and matter has been absurd for today because of the vast and deeper study of science in the field of quantum physics.
But this has been the finding of the mystics since the Vedas, the ancient most findings of the mystics, that matter is illusory and it is just the appearance.
Quantum Physics and Cosmic Consciousness
In this universe, nothing else exists other than consciousness and all else that appears to exist is only the appearance.
If we dig deeper into reality, the appearance of the matter starts dissolving and modern physics believes everything is the vibration of energy. Different types of vibrations of energy waves or strings give different appearances to every matter. They look different because of their different vibrational energy or strings.
Mystics have taken one furthers step also: they say that if you go deeper into energy you will find energy also does not exist and then what is left is consciousness.
These are the three things: matter, energy, consciousness. Consciousness is the center, the innermost core of reality and the matter is the outermost circumference, and energy the in-between bridge.
Modern Physics is trying to know the true nature of reality. It has been ended with Quarks, the smallest particle of a matter. But String Theory claims that within the Quarks, the energy exists in the form of vibrating string. Due to the different frequencies of vibration of the string, different matters appear.
Science and God
Just 120 years ago scientists were denying any reality to energy and their whole emphasis was on the matter. Now that emphasis has completely changed, and the matter has completely disappeared but not the god. Now to be a materialist nowadays is simply to show your stupidity.
But this is not the end – one step more, because ultimately one has to come to know ’Who is this seeker? Who is the observer? Who is the witness?’ We can understand all that is outside, but one day finally we have to understand the one who understands, the consciousness.
Science can explain everything except the scientist, but that will remain the problem. Science cannot explain the scientist himself, who is the source of all science. And the moment you start moving into the scientist’s inner world, you are bound to stumble upon
And that is the declaration of the mystics of the world Hindu, Christian, Mohammedan, Jain
So, Quantum physicists are working to define what the consciousness is, and have developed many theories but science is behind the spirituality and consciousness is beyond the science.
