Soul and body supplements each other and together they ascertain what is hidden and what is apparent. But the manner in which they work mutually has been a mystery for man. Whether soul is everything and matter has little importance, or that the matter is sole imposing is such a question the answer to which is much sought after.
From pre-historic times, Man learnt to observe Nature which provided answers to all the questions he had. This observation led to the basis of scientific enquiry and experimentation. Scientists soon realized the incapacity of ‘words’ to describe what the study of Nature revealed onto them and hence ‘mathematical notations’ came into being.
During all this time, the question of matter and soul was never ignored. Mystics tried to explain it in their own ways and Science took a different path. But both were in the quest to solve the same query.
Primarily more importance was given to the experience of soul as the impact of Theology was immense. This was the age of Mystics and Prophets which was then followed by the era of Newtonian Mechanics. The theories of Newton and his contemporaries dealt with what is visible and can be calculated. Soul lost its due importance and with the progress of Science the question of Soul and Matter became even more problematical to handle. As understanding of the functions of brain and body increased, things started to get more complex.
Although scientific discoveries and inventions poured in a great number in this era, ignoring the study of Human soul led Man away from attaining global peace and harmony. The Greater One lost its meaning and the concept of duality of things gained much attention. With this attitude science could only pursue a blind-ended road following no direction that could lead us to our Final Destination.
With more keen observation and independent inquiry, Scientists discovered a new avenue of Thought. The Scientists noticed a strange inverse co-relation between the uncertainties of some corresponding measurements and the sub-atomic particles were found to follow wavefunction. The concept that matter is sole imposing, and matter and spirit are not related, fell apart as now Mechanical calculations were no longer as functional as they used to be.
This brought our essential question back to the stage in a fresh form. The reliability of matter was questioned and if matter shows no determination and existence is just a probability then what purpose is served by spirit? This shows that there still remain some secrets to be unfolded.The age of mysticism is no longer there so any final answer has to come from the quarters of Science. Scientists on the other hand have to keep one thing in mind. The secret of the answer to this question lies inside the Human heart. Before looking forward to the results of their experiments, Scientists should help spread the waves of Peace and Harmony across the globe as both spirit and matter responds to Love. In this way the answer will surely uncover itself before our eyes.
