Is Consciousness the Bridge Between Science & Religion?

by Peter Russell, Collective Evolution Science and religion often seem poles apart–and in many ways they are. But I believe the two can, and will eventually be, united; and their meeting point will be human consciousness. That we are conscious beings is the most obvious fact of our existence. Indeed, all we ever know are the thoughts, images, and feelings arising in our consciousness. Yet as far as Western science…

The Pineal Gland, DMT, Forbidden Knowledge

One of the most won­drous parts of our phys­i­cal body is the Pineal Gland.  It is also called the epi­ph­ysis cere­bri, epi­ph­ysis, conar­ium or the “Third Eye.” It is a small endocrine gland in the ver­te­brate brain. It pro­duces sero­tonin and mela­tonin, hor­mones that affect mood and mod­u­late our wake/sleep pat­terns and sea­sonal func­tions. Its shape resem­bles a tiny pine-cone (hence its name in Latin, pinea, which means “pinecone”), and it is located near the cen­ter of the brain, between the…

Mysticism

Mysticism is a discipline involved with knowledge and techniques which are of value in assisting the individual toward spiritual growth. It is a very pragmatic discipline, concerned with direct experience, or awareness of spiritual truth, of ultimate reality, etc., which can be attained through immediate intuition, insight, or illumination.

The Book of Pleasure

The Psychology of Ecstasy By Austin Osman Spare Definitions The words God, religions, faith, morals, woman, etc. (they being forms of belief), are used as expressing different “means” as controlling and expressing desire: an idea of unity by fear in some form or another which must spell bondage-the imagined limits; extended by science which adds a dearly paid inch to our height: no more. Kia: The absolute freedom which being…

2001: Are Science and Religion Compatible?

We need separations between religion and science, ethics, and the state. But there is an appropriate domain for religion, and in this sense science and religion are not necessarily incompatible. That domain is evocative, expressive, emotive. Religion presents moral poetry, aesthetic inspiration, and dramatic expressions of existential hope and yearnings. Paul Kurtz There have been many conferences recently discussing the relationship between science and religion. The Templeton Foundation, for example,…

DNA as Cosmic Code

We cant know what a hypothetical extraterrestrial intelligence might do, but we do know enough about human nature to acknowledge the desire for recognition. It shows up every time a new squabble breaks out over who really discovered an exoplanet humans crave the praise of their…

George Berkeley (1685-1753)

George Berkeley was one of the three most famous eighteenth century British Empiricists (see LOCKE, JOHN and HUME, DAVID). He is best known for his motto, esse is percipi, to be is to be perceived. He was an idealist: everything that exists is either a mind or depends for its existence upon a mind. He was an immaterialist: matter does not exist. He accepted the seemingly outrageous position that ordinary…
