What is the difference?
31 July 2008
What is the difference between the following two situations?
1. A scientist does an experiment and observes that an elemental
particle moves from point a to point B. A second scientist does the
same experiment with the same results.
2. That same scientist sits down at night, starts meditating and
observes that he experiences a unity with all that exists,
transcending his ego and becoming one with the universe. The second
scientist does the same and experiences the same.
So why is it the the first event is generally accepted as
"objective" and "scientific" and the second event often dismissed as
"delusional" or "non-scientific"?
