Abstract

Quantum physics with quantum entanglement as its crown, has shaken up science as we knew it. ‘Is another powerful change in the offing?,’ we can ask. The consequences of implementing the universal truth that ‘the force is (always) anterior to the instrument’ into our general scientific approach, will be phenomenal and earthshaking. As it reverses the cause and effect: from ‘matter to consciousness’, it turns into ‘from consciousness to matter’. It opens the possibility of marrying science with the science of life on an equal footing. It can propel life as we know it to unknown heights and usher harmony and unity as first principles. 

1. Introduction

The moment we implement that ‘force is anterior to the instrument’ in our scientific approach as a basic, self-evident truth or axiom, science will be reborn into a new scientific reality.

Can the next step be science changing its view and approach from ‘matter is the beginning of everything’ to ‘consciousness is the source and force behind our reality’?

2. Force and Instrument

An instrument uses a force, adapts a force but never creates a new force. Without a force there can be no instrument. Still we look at the instrument body or brain and presume it creates the force consciousness. But the force consciousness should be anterior to the instrument human being. Consciousness should have created brain, the instrument, for its use to issue thought.

Mental consciousness should be behind its physical expressions in our brain which we associate with thoughts. Vital consciousness behind feelings and their expressions in our body. Physical consciousness behind the perfect expressions in health and continuity of our body. It follows that the brain cannot produce thoughts neither together with our glands feelings nor together with our nerves pain as it is only an instrument. It is like the car that feels ecstatic about his excellent driving, not being aware of the driver and his skills and mind that decides all the car does.

3. Involution and Evolution

The science of consciousness can open us to the knowledge of so many levels of consciousness by making them accessible.

Consciousness first! It is consciousness that uses matter as its instrument.

The first question that arises is: matter existed first in our universe and consciousness appeared long afterwards in the form of life and still later in the form of mind, so how can consciousness be first?

The only rational explanation can be: before the start of the evolution there must have been a process of involution. It explains why the universe was not created out of nothing but started at the point where the process of involution reversed into a process of evolution. The turning point we have observed as the Big Bang.

4. Process of Awakening

It further explains that life is latent in matter and mind latent and involved in life and matter. It shows that evolution is a process of awakening as we see in seeds where the future being is involved and evolves out of it.

5. One Next Step

This process of awakening is gaining speed before our eyes. What are the next steps of this awakening, one can ask. Can a next step be science changing its view and approach from ‘matter is the beginning of everything’ to ‘consciousness is the source and force behind our reality’?
Many things will follow that change of view. The science of life can take the lead and flower. The science of consciousness can open us to the knowledge of so many levels of consciousness by making them accessible. Man will be given its rights that go with being the head of the evolution. Matter, not technology, nor artificial intelligence (AI), will be the main determinant of the future of earthly life, it is man and his evolving consciousness that is and will be the determining force.
