Science is a very old enterprise which began since man became interested in the universe and in how it works. And since then, especially since the past 400 years of solely quantitative science, man has propounded and proposed different theories to explain the universe.
So, today, I want us to just briefly talk about the purpose of science. I think we have a general understanding of what it is or of what it should be, but in this article, I want us to look again at this general understanding of the purpose of science and see if we can reform or add any further information to it which has become necessary due to the birth of a new scientific age.
Science has really come a long way and we have this general understanding that science is the means by which we understand the universe and all its laws. This general perception or understanding is what is taken as the purpose of science.
Science is what serves the purpose of providing us with the understanding of the universe and this understanding is what is engaged in the design of tools and complex technologies that facilitate the way we do work and interact with our environment.
Science helps us to understand the universe and it is also the means by which we design technologies. So, science is the one aspect of knowledge that is responsible for shaping the modern age.
The purpose of science has always been to provide us with the understanding of the universe and I am in complete support of it. However, I think science goes beyond just providing us with the mental experience of cosmic knowledge.
Science, especially in this post-modern age, is the means by which man fulfils himself and attains divine status. This is the new purpose of science beyond just understanding the universe and everything I want to say next is to consolidate this position.Science, especially in this post-modern age, is the means by which man fulfils himself and attains divine status.Click To Tweet
Science is much about man than it is about the universe around him. Science is the means for the complete ascension of man from this lower life that has characterized the previous ages to the higher life that now characterizes the new age.
The former meaning of science as that which is associated with the physical is now being replaced by the new meaning as that which is associated with the spiritual.
Science now serves the purpose as the final satisfaction of the spiritual hunger in man. Science is the answer to the wholeness of man; it is the final answer to this world which is lost and bereft of true spirituality.
Religion was what stood in this position before as science showed less concern and even derided and denied the spiritual, but this is not to continue. A transition of the ages has occurred and science has found its spirituality.
Science has displaced religion as the agent of spiritual experience. We must recognize that science is now the means by which we experience the spiritual universe which is the ultimate truth.Science has displaced religion as the agent of spiritual experience.Click To Tweet
So, we don’t just use science to understand the universe and design technologies, but to also provide us with the spiritual experience and a wider consciousness of the universe which were not possible before.
The true meaning of spirituality as that which concerns the universe and the man in it has become manifested. Science has come to teach us how to live in the domain of Thought and not in the domain of Substance as before.
Formerly, the purpose of science as the means by which we understand the universe was based on Substance, but in this new scientific age, the purpose of science as the means by which we understand the universe is based on Thought.
In the domain of Thought, man can access the laws of the universe from their original emanations and not depend on their apparent and deceptive manifestations in Substance.
So, man is going beyond just understanding the universe to being an emanator of cosmic laws. This is as his mind becomes more attuned by the spiritual experiences of the universe which science could not have achieved when it denied and neglected the spiritual.Man is going beyond just understanding the universe to being an emanator of cosmic laws.Click To Tweet
This is why I speak of the Ascension to the higher ways which are different from our current ways of interacting with universal knowledge. The new purpose of science is to serve as the means to spirituality and not any longer as the means to physicality and materialism which bedevils this world.
Science has experienced a rebirth and it now reveals the universe in a new way that propels us into Ascension and a greater consciousness of the cosmos. This is the fulfilment of the eternal longing of the Spirit of the universe.
Science is forcing a soul transformation of our collective existence and consciousness to establish itself as the only foundation of civilization. Everything that is not scientific or that attempts to exalt itself above the knowledge of science will be destroyed.
The science with this greater purpose is the new, spiritual science that is now being revealed to you in this great blog. Science is no longer to be exploited for the competition of knowledge but be explored for the universal experience of the spiritual.
The new science that has come to the world is established on profound spiritual principles that their ultimate implication is to make the society of man perfectly natural so that it mirrors Heaven. Remember the mystical law: “as above, so below“.
Science has set its purpose to harmonize Heaven and Earth and make all things one. There can be no greater meaning for the purpose of science than what is being discovered in this post-modern age.
Science is now about all we are and can be. It is now about the greater man, divine in his outlook and consciousness of the universe. This is the end of scientific learning.
Man is to discover not just the external unity of the universe but his own unity with it. He is to find his true place in the universe and not among the stars but at the center of the universal consciousness which permeates all things.
The purpose of science is to provide this ascension which entails the true spiritual understanding of the universe, the provision of scientific miracles and the complete spiritual fulfilment of man.
Until next time,
I will be here.
