Excerpt About Science
Science Attempts to Discover Basic KnowledgeScience inquires into the surface manifestations of basic knowledge -- its horizontal dimension, so to speak -- and spirituality inquires into its depths -- its vertical dimension. Each arrives at detailed, extensive, and useful knowledge. Both attempt to discover basic knowledge that is uninfluenced by opinions or projections, or determined by prior constructions. By exploring the wholeness of basic knowledge -- both the vertical and horizontal dimensions -- we may be able to arrive at a more fundamental dimension of knowledge that embraces both. The important point here, however, is that when we explore the forms of basic knowledge it reveals to us its truths, its invariant patterns and universal principles.
