Thanks a lot Bel. Unfortunately it is now completely overcast. I doubt I'll be able to see the blue of the sky- let alone Mars! Astrology is pretty hilarious, especially when you scientifically analyse the few pieces of jargon that are inserted: Just a few days ago I read "Today the Sun's retrograde through Arctunus will bring x,y and z into your life." How do you know it's rubbish? The Sun never has a retrograde orbit. Ever! How many times have you seen the sun rise twice in the same day? Hehehe. It's funny.
Oh, and the main law that I can recall off the top of my head for Newtonian physics is:
g x M1 x M2 / d squared = Force
Where g equals the gravitational constant, M1 is the mass of the first body, M2 is the mass of the second body, d is the distance between them, and the equation generates the force in Newtons between the two bodies.
I was reading last evening and thought of you as I read this:
Mind differentiates, creates boundaries, definitions, because mind cannot work w/out definition's, without boundaries. The more clear-cut the boundaries, the better the possiblity for the mind to work. So mind cuts, divides, chops, everything.
Religion is a dissolving of boundaries in order to move to the undifferentiated where there is no definition, where there is no limit to anything, where everything moves into everything else, where everything is everything else. You cannot cut, you cannot chop existence. The consequences are bound to be very different in each approach. By the scientific approach, by dividing chopping, you can come only to dead parrticles, atoms, because life is something which cannot be cut into divisions. And the moment you cut it, it is no more there. It is as if someone goes to study a symphony by studying each single note. Each single note is part of the symphony, but it is not the symphony. The symphony is created by many notes dissolving into each other. You cannot study symphony by studying notes.
I cannot study you by studying your parts, you are not just a total of parts, you are more than that. When you divide and cut and analyze, life disappears; only dead parts are left. That is why science will never be capable of knowing what life is, and whatsoever is known through science will be about death - matter - it will never be about life, of knowing the parts, the dead parts. It may be capable of manipulating life, but still life is not known, not even touched. Life remains unknowable for science. By the very method of its technology, its methodology, by the very approach, life cannot be known through it.
That is why science goes on denying - denying anything else other than matter. The very approach debars any contact with that which is life. And vice versa happens also; if you move deeply into religion, you will start denying matter. Matter is illusion, it is not there; it simply appears to be. Science goes on denying life, the divine conssciousness, Deeper religious experiences go on denying matter - all that it natural. If you look at life w/out differentiation, matter dissappears. Matter is life divided, differentiated. Matter means life defined, analyzed into parts.
So, of coarse, if you look at life indifferentiatedly and become part of it, in a deep participation, if you become one with existensce, it is. Consciousness is just a by-product, it is not substantial; it is just a function of matter. If you divide life, then consciousness disappears, becomes illusionary. Then only matter is.
What I am intending to say to you is this: Existence is one. If you approach it through analysis, it appears material; dead. If you appraoch it through participation, it appears as life, as divine, as consciouness, If you approach it through science there is no possiblity of any deep bliss happening to you, because with dead matter bliss is impossible. At the most it can only be illusionary Only with a deep participation is bliss possible.
