Comment arising from:
From facts to meaning, through beauty
by Deepak Chopra

Idea of Science operates a mind that gathers data to construct a model
of reality that holds and reinforces the same inherent 'meaning' as the
mind that thus seeks.
For such a 'mind' is inherently regarded as
separated from its experienced 'world' of objects and thus free to act
upon it, manipulate and exploit, map and define and control it.
this arose from confusing a sense of dominion over nature that is
inherent to the Creator level of Consciousness, with the 'mind' or
personality construct of the central character in its script of
While the Creator-Spirit identifies in character, that one is as one asleep - who knows not what he does.
Yet the Fact of Awareness of Existence is immutable - regardless the unfolding or expansion of idea as experience.
illusion of power always costs the awareness of the power of illusion -
that is the power of Idea accepted, believed, experienced and
identified as reality by the mind that thus thinks.
Existence operates through differentiation and desire to create unique
and infinite reflections of Meaning. The core qualities of such Meaning
include Beauty, Truth, Love, Joy, Peace, Reason, Justice. Such are the
fruits of the Spirit of Wholeness.
A divisive, possessive, and
coercive identifiction with the image, symbol or form of any of the
Qualities of Existence redefines such qualities in its own image - as

restoration of an Embracing Perspective to that which struggled in idea
of the imposture of rejection and exclusion.
Science operates on a
material or external world that inherently rises from the rejection of
the Spirit or Wholeness of an undefended Open Consciousness.
nature of such rejection is a deceit by which to seem to be defending
against un-chosen and unwarranted threat. Thus the split into conscious
and un-conscious compartments - not in matter - but in meanings
accepted, believed and asserted in reaction.
Science can serve as a
technologism of weapon, shield and strategem for the segregating sense
of self, or it can serve a love of truth in honest and undefended
opening to the ALREADY true.
In war truth is whatever one can assert and pass off in order to support a private agenda.
In truth there is no war.
How can there be no war in the face of such experience as we take for the human condition?
By recognizing the deceit of self-attack, upon which is raised the seeming self of a split-minded struggle.

The reality of the 'other' cannot be discovered but
through your own. In another you meet your split-minded reflection in an
alloy of alliance and rejection OR you meet the freedom to be That
which you are - without first defining what you are in terms OF
exclusivity and rejection.
Science, re-aligned to serve an
integrating wholeness, supports and reflects the Qualities of Awareness
of Existence. We are not personae in fragmentation, but channels of
Creative Expression. There is no way to communicate the latter to the
former what so ever. Let beauty and joy restore a unified Experience -
and use that perspective to act from - instead of attempting to stuff
the New Wine into old paradigms.
