Light to see the world - Science, Spirituality and Life's Big Questions

  1. 1. 1 Science, Spirituality and Life's Big Questions
  2. 2. Einstein’s dilemma If matter is everything, we don’t have free will. Nazis not culpable
  3. 3. The Flashlight of Science Down – Bright Ahead – Blurred Up – Blank
  4. 4. Science vs Scientism “People ask me if science can explain everything. I tersely provide the following answer. Gravity is not responsible for people falling in love.” - Einstein
  5. 5. View and worldview Science has changed our world – and our worldview Eg Flashlight in balloon can’t show what is outside
  6. 6. Presumption or Conclusion? Science – material explanations for material phenomena Guide for the Perplexed, E. F. Schumacher: No Churches in Moscow map in USSR
  7. 7. Search for Meaning Newton – falling fruit See beyond visible phenomena to invisible principles
  8. 8. From meaning to meaninglessness? The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it seems pointless - Steven Weinberg
  9. 9. We need orientation “Continued observations in clinical practice lead almost inevitably to the conclusion that deeper and more fundamental than sexuality, deeper than the craving for social power, deeper even than the desire for possessions, there is a still more generalized and universal craving in the human makeup. It is the craving for knowledge of the right direction—for orientation.” - Psychologist William Sheldon of Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons
  10. 10. Expand the scope of the search “The world is not to be narrowed till it will go into the understanding (which has been done hitherto), but the understanding is to be expanded and opened till it can take in the image of the world” – Francis Bacon
  11. 11. Be open Spirituality is not a contradiction of science – it is the foundation of science God is not an explanation for the unexplainable – he is the explanation for explanability
  12. 12. Maths-Physics Correlation? “The miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand nor deserve. We should be grateful for it.” - Eugene Wigner
  13. 13. Maths-Physics Correlation? “We are in a position similar to that of a man who was provided with a bunch of keys and who, having to open several doors in succession, always hit on the right key on the first or second trial. He became skeptical concerning the uniqueness of the coordination between keys and doors.” – Eugene Wigner
  14. 14. Be a part; be not apart We are at our core spiritual We are parts of the whole Our intelligence is meant to help us harmonize with the whole
