Science As Dogma

That modern science is dogmatic both in its foundations and method, and also in its self-assessment and self-understanding, is a matter of fact that is not very well known to the public, and particularly to the fans, or perhaps fanatics, of science. To object to science nowadays, even by an objective objection, is almost as shocking and offensive to its fans as it is to violate the sanctity of their mothers’ wombs. This fanaticism is even more violent in people who are of lesser intelligence, for it belongs to the very essence of intelligence to be impartial and objective rather partial and subjective. Thus, a fanatic, whatever creed feeds his/her obsessions, does not in principle enjoy the same degree of intelligence allotted to mankind. He/she is yet to become human, maybe in some other life.

The point here is that science and its nature, its scope and limits, its prides and scandals, are known best to scientists themselves rather than any outsider who might have felt it looks cooler and less objectionable to stand on the side of science and perversion rather than religion and tradition. And the fanatics fans of science, like those of religion or else, are generally so stupid that it is impossible to convey to them why and how this modern science is not about the Real.

As usual the correction of the path, the excellence of the way, is left not to the self-interested fans who mass produce jokes and opinions but to those few who still carry the light of Truth within their pure hearts; it is only up to the future bright scientists to discern between the Real and the unreal, and hence proclaim the ancient truth which is really always staring into our numb and dumb faces. It suffices to say that there is only one world in which we live. The world of the mystic and the world of the scientist must be one and the same; if not, it is always the scientist who must find recourse to the origin, for the mystic has never ever left the origin to begin with.

In his celebrated anthology The Perennial Philosophy Aldous Huxley reminds us of the subsisting corruption of modern science and its unworthy representative, the dogmatic scientist, when they face the wisdom of ancient traditions:

“Promoting their methodological ineptitude to the rank of a criterion of truth, dogmatic scientists have often branded everything beyond the pale of their limited competence as unreal and even impossible” 

Science as a method of inquiry based on certain presuppositions is perfectly a fine enterprise. It is like a branch of engineering, at least modern science which is far from the Greek conception of the idea of science. It has never been the business of science to discover reality as it is, let alone the truth; this becomes evident for a serious mind who bothers to look into the origin of science and its modern idea and practice. Thus, the world picture provided by science, including its understanding of human, is as unreal and fictional as ancient mythologies and demigods. This fictional character of the world-picture of modern science is just beginning to show itself, first emerged at the advent of Quantum Physics. It is ironic how our farthest and most recent probes into the nature of reality tells us only of ourselves, as if we see nothing in its but the reflection of our own pale faces in search of truth. Quantum Physics which is the highest creation of Realism concludes that Realism cannot be true, and it cannot be so in principle.

Appearance, the world of phenomena, has its roots in consciousness and not the other way around. This is only recently understood by a few physicists but will be factually established and then communicated into the mass in about a few centuries. Then people will understand that the Dark Age never really ended in 15th century but only peaked in the 21st century.

  1. dear Tomaj.
    thanks.
    thanks for the prediction.
    the world will be with lot of realized persons than now.
    the difficulty faced by people like you as of now won’t be finding it so hard to bring the real reality in world which will be more close to nature.
    wealth amazing by covet means will be far less in future as you predict.
    may truth prevail upon you ever.

  2. That was well said. The integrity, the purity of science, is better served when it is as free from dogma and bias as possible. Science is a method of inquiry and to be inquisitive means you’re willing to be open to what you discover and observe.

    Often it seems as if we have things backwards these days. Many demand empirical evidence for matters of faith, while insisting people “believe” in science. The problem is science isn’t about belief at all and faith is not about evidence.

    1. That’s true. But even more ironic is that scientific propositions are theoretical models accepted based on utility. However, metaphysicial truths are not matters of faith at all but of intellectual intuition and direct evidence. Faith belongs to the lower sphere of dogma. With training one can have direct perception of metaphysical truths but not physicist can be trained enough to see a physical electron. This means that we have rejected what is obviously provable by intuition and instead believe in a dogma that had not basis in reality. Mosern Science is religion.

  3. Good Tomaj,
    I agree is not the process of poking around uncovering the same meaningless minutia what is wrong, it is the arrogant, prejudiced and utterly misleading materialistic spirit in which this process is done what is mistaken and what keeps human society anchored down.
    Hopefully in the light of the increasing rate of scientific output that is observed today, those “few centuries” might turn into just a few decades and mankind could start its well deserved journey into an awakened society.
    The problem is that this quality leap calls for a major human revolution in thought like nothing ever seen before and this radical change needs to be leaded and based by scientific claims which so easily permeate into the common person.
    So much more than building gargantuan particle colliders, the real challenge at hand for scientists is to change themselves into a responsible and intellectually grownup community truly able to show the way to the masses into the mystery of heavens.

    1. “A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty…We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.” – Albert Einstein

      1. This is wonderful post; I had never heard it. You see Einstein was one of the few scientists realizing what lies beyond physics. Thanks for sharing it.

  4. And as with physics, so much more so with the biological sciences and so-called medical science. To see so many people suffering illnesses brought on by lifestyle, stress, poison environments, unhealthy working conditions, and poverty, all to sustain an industry that doesn’t really have an idea of true health and balance.

    1. You are absolutely right; it is an industry whose sole goal is unlimited profit. Enslaving people to unethical and stressful work so the few profit they create the disease; then they also make money by selling medicines that are advertised to fix the disease; then they make even more money by selling more medicines cancelling the side effects of their other medicines. It is a money producing giant machine with no moral or spiritual sense that feeds on human lives. No less than genocide.

  5. dear people who are induced into sincerely following our Tomaj i thank you.
    highest damage done by materialistic science,organised religions of the world as of now is that of not allowing large majority of people’s questioning ability and by which they can enjoy fruit of intuition.

    1. I hope so too but look at the killings and burning in middle east. Middle Ages was same too. But these things are the natural fruits of imperialism. People in the middle ages didn’t know they were in the middle of the middle ages. We too fail to see the spiritual corruption but this itself is a sign of a coming transformation at the level of consciousness that is already taken place in a lot of people I guess. 🙂
