Science is based on objects; its invention is based on object as subject. Thus the modern science can get the truth of objectified subject. Elimination of object mentally and realizing the subject then judging the worldview on the base of the pure subject leads to discovery of ultimate truth.
The feelings and impressions and notions are based on the physical self. The scientific inventions are based on the physical self. A deeper self - search reveals the fact that, the physical self (waking entity or ego) is false self within the false experience (waking).
Modern science is the very opposite of the Gnani’s standpoint of view. Gnani says that a thing exists on the standpoint of the form as self and things ceases to exist without the formless self.
Therefore, it is necessary to know the fact that, the true self is not physical but the formless spirit, which we call it soul or self.
There is a need for sufficient distinction or discrimination has to be made between the witness and the witnessed. The witness is mixed and identified with what it witnessed and the result is doubts and confusion still prevailed without identifying the witness.
Personal feelings, ideas, judgments entered into the presentation of facts by the so called gurus and the whole mass passed as truth, the process often being given the high-sounding name of Intuition, Vision or Revelation which are mere fancy based on the physical self.
The religious idea of rewarding the virtuous and punishing the sinner in graded degrees are popular among the mass. These are some of the very well-known instances of pathetic fallacy, that is to say, introducing the element of personal sentiment in our appreciation of events and objects. Even today's literate mass follow or observe these religious dogmas superstitions and tradition.
Both modern science and religion offer hypotheses and theories but there is one vital difference--science begins with the facts which it collects; religion begins with fancies. Science evolves its hypotheses from such facts, religion from fancies.
Science declares that oxygen combines with hydrogen to give water. And it also declares oxygen is protons or electrons. But in pursuit of truth the whole physical existence [universe or mind] is considered as illusion and science and their inventions, which are based on the physical existence is limited to physical existence. The truth is within but it is beyond the physical existence. The science demands physical proof. But the physical proof is part of the illusion. Hence science cannot go beyond physicality because the truth cannot be traced with laboratory conditions. Deeper self-search is required if one wants to push its quest deeply enough.
Common people and primitive minds fall into faulty thinking through their inherited conditioning , such faulty thinking and reasoning makes them accept the experience of birth, life and death as reality ; taking what one sees through the senses as real, taking what is apparent obvious and superficial as true because it is less troublesome.
Many People adopt the attitude that what they know is truth. And what others say id false. This attitude makes them not to verify anything other than what they know. One needs to be rational, not merely logical. Logic has its value only in the physical plane.
As one advances towards the spiritual plane he sees the logic underlying experience and becomes more rational. His reasoning is two-fold--implicit and explicit.
There is a need for physical proof in scientific invention, whereas in path of wisdom the proof has to be grasped mentally and realized. Therefore, the truth is realized only by the few who take this mental pursuit. “Whatever facts revealed, which is un-contradictable has to be accepted as truth.
The truth based on the formless soul, the innermost self is worthwhile; without it, one has something else, not truth. Most people refuse to venture into pursuit of truth; because they do not want to go into the root of things.
The seeker of truth has to study, inquire and reason in the beginning of the pursuit of truth, because it is absolutely necessary in pursuit of truth.
One has to know the true self is not physical but the formless spirit. The spirit or soul or the self is in the form of consciousness. Consciousness gives one the awareness of the three states.
The ignorance of the true self is the cause of experiencing the duality as reality. The ignorance vanishes through realization of the formless soul, the innermost self
The soul or conciousness, the innermost self does not lie in our body or in our brain, or our ego, but it is the essence of the dual and non-dual experiences, which comes and goes as waking dream and deep sleep.
