Scientific Revolution

The essence of today’s revolution in science is twofold. First, scientists are beginning to realize that fundamental problems in astrophysics and quantum physics can only be resolved by recognizing that Consciousness provides the Contextual Foundation for all our lives. Secondly, many can see and feel, as evolution accelerates inexorably towards Wholeness, that no beings in the Universe are ever separate from any other, including the Supreme Being.

To establish these fundamental facts of existence as sound science, we turn what is called ‘science’ today outside in and upside down, focusing attention on inner rather than outer space. For our minds create our reality, and hence our behaviour, not the other way round. First, to put Western civilization back on its feet—for today it is standing on its head—we map the Cosmic Psyche through self-inquiry. Secondly, we are engaged in a contextual inversion, rather than a paradigm change or shift, returning Western science to Reality and the Truth.

This is similar to the Copernican revolution, when Johannes Kepler proved mathematically that the planets ‘circle’ the Sun in ellipses, as they had been doing for four and a half billion years, contrary to the beliefs of the Aristotelians and Christians in the Middle Ages. In today’s heliocentric revolution, we recognize that the Coherent Light of Consciousness exists in Eternity as Ultimate Reality. This is not a new discovery, for mystics have well known this Truth through the ages, calling it, for instance, Satchidananda in Sanskrit, ‘Bliss of Absolute Truth and Consciousness’.

One consequence of the widespread belief that we humans are separate from Divinity, Nature, and each other is that the vast majority of people are living in delusion, to some extent or other. This is not new, for these delusions have been blindly passed from one generation to another for thousands of years, ever since the dawn of human history. In particular, Western civilization is based on seven pillars of unwisdom, misconceptions of God, Universe, Life, humanity, money, justice, and reason. So one of the Alliance’s major activities will be to rebuild the last 5,000 years of learning on the seven pillars of wisdom.

We shall then be able to answer a host of unanswered questions in science, for some are saying that while scientists know much about the physical universe and genetics, they don’t yet understand what they know. By far the most critical of these unanswered questions is “What is causing scientists and technologists, aided and abetted by computer technology, to drive the pace of scientific discovery and technological invention at unprecedented exponential rates of acceleration?” For understanding ourselves through self-inquiry is absolutely essential if we are to intelligently manage our business affairs with full awareness of the creative evolutionary energies that cause us to behave as we do.
