Issue 83: Why science?

  1. Everything and everyone will finally know who it or he or she is, and be itself or himself or herself only, and that it or he or she is equal to Adi.


(Why Science?)

So, Praja, keeping this all in mind, as it can be kept in our minds, invented science: the spirit of enquiry, perception and logical thinking. Science is one of the best things to develop the human mind. A real scientist always exerts his mind to the limit, or tries to push it beyond the limit out of hunger for understanding, and out of longing for at least a flash of intuition from a state of consciousness higher than the mind. But precisely because people have to develop or unfold, or evolve their minds, Praja never gave or gives details. If she would teach all the details, which of course she could easily do, her pupils, the people, would not learn anything really, would never evolve their mind along these lines – just like school boys and girls would learn nothing when their parents would make their homework for them, despite the fact that, in the beginning, such students might get the highest marks.

A result of practicing science is, not only that people develop their mind and intelligence, but also that they can become creative. They can make tools, instruments, machines, and can intelligently combine their knowledge of various things, so that they can invent new materials and even combine them in ways nature has never done. For example airplanes. Man has invented airplanes, which are much bigger and faster than birds, and therefore can bring people from the one side to the other side of the world. But the technology of birds wings and muscles is much more advanced than any airplane ever made so far. By scientific thinking people can create new things, combine knowledge, and can also combine knowledge of matter with their emotions or more subtle feelings, so that they can make art – which is usually useless for practical purposes, but teaches something more subtle to other people who see or hear (or feel, or taste or smell) it, and therefore is often much more useful than anything people call useful (such as televisions).

Praja meditated over the different types of science she would introduce, because there are different types of thinkers, and not everyone (or perhaps no-one) is able to think about and know everything at the same time.

What would people want to understand, and what would they be able to understand, what is useful for ultimately understanding themselves, what would fascinate them? Of course that would be different for different people and different cultures on different places on earth in different times. But basically all humans, like all beings, are on only one big quest: who am I? What is the Universe, where do I come from and how do I exist, or how can I live a good and useful life? Are we going somewhere in the future? How does the living universe work? What is the intelligence in the universe and how does it work? (It’s, after all – our example and we all want to become as intelligent, knowledgeable and powerful as the universe itself – and that is possible – relatively – also.) You can look outside far or near to learn about the external world bigger than galaxies and smaller than atoms, and even invisible galaxies and atoms, you can look inside to know your feelings and thoughts, and what you really are, where all these desires and feelings and thoughts come from. You can also look inside as well as outside to see how energies work, what they really are – they are also living beings – and what their effects are, and how you can handle them and steer them. All these things people want to know. They studied such things hundreds of thousands or more years ago and they still do. And Praja, who resides in their hearts and minds, and is nothing else than these, though much greater, gives them hints by intuition and challenges them by presenting problems. The desire to know is already there, because, as parts of Adi, our background question is always his great question: Who am I?

A Vision of the Cosmos

As soon as Praja thought about the cosmos, a vision appeared to her that was so vast, so intricate and so absolutely well-ordered, an enormous play of giving and receiving and interchange, of living energies send from one place to the other by the direction of all kinds of gods – beings of great radiance, knowledge and power. Even to try to describe it for mere human minds would be absolutely impossible. She not only saw all the things we see: the Sun, the planets and the billions of other stars and planets and moons, including red giants and blue dwarfs, galaxies, nebula’s and quasars, neutron stars, black holes (which were not black for her) and other sources of all sorts of radiation, how they were born and sustained and were getting old and died and were reborn, sometimes at far away spots, but besides she could also see a multiplicity of these numbers of heavenly bodies which are completely imperceptible for our senses and instruments, even for the most advanced space telescopes and receptors we have today of the tiniest streams of energy, and they formed chains of flowing living energies. The heart of each informs the peripheries, and the peripheries inform the hearts, and communicated with other bodies. She could also perceive the feelings of love, of distinction, of attraction and rejection between these bodies, and the wise ruler-gods of each of them, and billions upon billions upon trillions (etc.) intelligent beings serving these gods, architects working according to the god’s plans, and executors of these plans. To a certain extend she could recognize a big plan in all that, a big game, a big purpose, but too big for her to completely understand, of awesome and sometime awful beauty. Not only did she see all these things, even more did she hear. These worlds often seemed to have their own laws of nature, often apparently completely different from the laws of nature we know, and which we regard as absolute. For example, space and time were experiences totally different from as we experience it, and matter had totally different properties than we have found with out scientific research and telescopes and particle accelerators. Many things we regard as ‘absolute’ are not valid at all in these worlds. But above the ‘laws of nature’ we – that means the most intelligent among us – like Aristoteles (or Aristotle), Newton, Descartes, Einstein, Hubble and Hawking and hundreds in other times and in other cultures – have deemed ‘absolute laws,’ there are Laws, or rather ‘Universal Habits’ of a higher order, from which all other laws derive when applied on different phases of matter. We know only physical matter quite well, but almost nothing about etheric, and ‘stardust’ or astrals, or mental matter or wisdom matter. The universal laws apply everywhere, but the natural laws we know apply only in physical matter.

You might think that all these things brought forth a tremendous cacophony, an unbearably chaotic multidimensional hard noise, like in a disco where the DJ has gone crazy, but that was not true in her vision. It was just the opposite. All of them produced their own sound, many of them beautiful sounds, and moreover they were all attuned to a basic pattern and highly ordered – like a good symphony orchestra with millions of instruments, some of which produce sounds of which we on earth have no idea. And this was so because each of them was a living being with a soul and a heart, and all hearts were attuned to each other like the hearts of real friends, because in the Heart of their hearts there was always One HEART, among which even the Heart of Adi was but a small heart. Every soul followed its cravings, some enjoyed, some were happy, some suffered tremendously, but again others were free and felt nothing but bliss, or experienced feelings of happiness of a nature which is beyond any feeling of happiness anyone can even remotely imagine on earth.


(The science of the cosmos)

 Not all the invisible planets and stars were far away. Some of them Praja could actually touch.
