SCIENCE OF SPIRITUALITY – 29
NATURAL SCIENCE &SPIRITUAL SCIENCE
VethathiriDasan - Prof. Dr. Madhavan Ph.D.,1. INTRODUCTION
Study of Nature by self is natural science. Study of self by the self itself is spiritualscience. Many of us forget that self is also natural. Present day scientists convenientlykeep the self out side their scope of study, differentiating matter from mind, which is alsoa matter of subtle nature.When Reality is one, perceptions are many. When the object is one the understandingare many. For example when we look at the moon, it is an inspiration for poets, it is asatellite planet for scientists, it is the face of his loved one for a lover and it is like achapatti for an hungry person.Then what is moon really? God only knows. Therefore to perceive the reality one mustbecome God; Think like God, Talk like God and Act like God. This is where Manbecomes God and the true meaning of Vedic Maha vakhya – Aham Brahmasmi..

Advaitha Philosophy says, not two, but one. Practical Vedanti of recent times, SwamiVivekananda, spoke in London, that the emerging spiritual science is – Advaitha.According to President of the Royal Society Lord Rees, told The Sunday Times: ‘A “true”fundamental theory of the universe may exist but could be just too hard for human brainsto grasp.'Just as a fish may be barely aware of the medium in which it lives and swims, so the
microstructure of empty space
could be far too complex for unaided human brains.’Lord Rees’s prediction has been prompted by the failure of scientists to reconcile theforces that govern the behavior of the cosmos with those that rule the ‘microworld’ of atoms and particles.While Einstein used mathematical calculations to build his 1915 theory of generalrelativity and 20th century physicists devised quantum theory, no scientist has sincefound the tools to unify the two.Lord Rees added: ‘Some aspects of reality – a unified theory of physics or a fullunderstanding of consciousness – might elude us simply because they’re beyond humanbrains, just as surely as Einstein’s ideas would baffle a chimpanzee.’
