The basic difference between science and spirituality?

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth:
not going all the way... and not starting.
— Buddha

When the reality appears this ignorance
which one thinks as reality becomes unreal.

Science considers the object as subject, and its judgement is based on objectified subject.  Thus, it cannot go beyond the object, because it is unaware of the subject which is cause of the object.   Thus in science the object (mind) is considered as subject.

In non-duality there is no object because the subject and object are one is essence. In duality Subject and object cannot be one. If one is able to observe something than this something is not the subject.

Beyond object, when truth is realized, the subject and object are one in essence. “A conditioned mindset is always out of touch with truth. By realizing the fact that, the self is not physical but it is formless consciousness, one can overcome the hereditary conditioning or samskaras  and become free from experiencing the illusion as reality.
