7. What can our science learn from our religion?

We have to re-think just now

Abstract

Three main points we are considering here are following:
1. The World has already changed
Since 1905, we all are citizens of the same, first global civilization on Earth.
2. What can our science learn from our religion?
Our monotheistic religion has been born as the adaptation of our previous polymorphic beliefs to our uniform understanding of Nature. In a similar way, our polymorphic science of the 20th century has to be replaced now with the Unified Physics, the first uniform description of the surely uniform Nature.
3. Beyond the paradigm boundary
We are standing on the new-paradigm side without our previous "physical body". But we are completely free. Free to build our new "body" of physics without the diseases of the old one. Free to reach new wonderful horizons.

What can our science learn from our religion? We have to re-think just now.

1. The World has already changed

One of the most frequently used rhetorical embellishments in almost all scientific discussions of the recent decade is surely the statement: the World is changing. But they are mere words, like the probably even more frequently used platitude: the global climate is changing. The reality is that the global climate can never be unchanging. It is because of the simple physical reasons, which I have already presented many times in my books and blogs. Shortly speaking, the Earth is not an island in the Universe.

Similarly, the World is always changing. But there is a big difference indeed between the present global climate changing and the present change of the World we all are living in. The present climatic change is a "cosmic jump" across the boundary between two consecutive periods of the shortest climatic cycle of 1118.2 years (compare the Cosmic Hierarchy cycles in my previous article). The hot phase of this jump has begun about 1850 and will end in a few years. On the other side, the present change of the World is unique during the whole history of the humankind. Today, for the first time in our species history, we all - the more than seven billion citizens of the planet - belong to a single global civilization, the first global civilization on the Earth.

This WorldShift, called that way by Ervin Laszlo and the WorldShift 2012 - community, is unique also from some other points of view. For example, technically, we have reached that point, when a practical connection between any two people is becoming reality. But the most important point of view is concerning our global consciousness, our common way of thinking about our own place and role on Earth and in the Universe.

Theoretically, we all belong to this first global civilization since 1905. Today, our most urgent task is to educate ourselves in order to understand not only our place and role, but also the rapidly growing risk of our activities according to "the same procedure as every year". The World War I and II were, from the global point of view, the transition phase and our "entrance fee" into the global civilization. We had to learn that a war is never a proper way to solve our global problems. Any next war, no matter where, would just be a proof of our immaturity to think and act globally.

I am only a physicist. I cannot stop any violence and any misuse of a power. But I can immediately show you, if you wish, how a simple but rigorous change in our thinking about the World can open quite new perspectives for all of us, the perspectives from which we will recognize, how senseless and even stupid any next year of our global passivity in this changing world could be.

2. What can our science learn from our religion?

Our religious history is much longer than the history of our science. Our religion has evidently started as a system of attitudes, beliefs, and practices directed to many different deities, presumably located in almost all material objects in our cosmic and terrestrial neighbourhood. However, already about ten thousand years ago an idea appeared that such a polytheistic point of view reduces the magnificence of the very idea of God, the Creator of all things. There is just one Nature and therefore also her creator should be understood as a Oneness. The monotheism has been thus born as the adaptation of our previous polymorphic beliefs to our uniform understanding of Nature.

At the end of the 19th century, our science stood at a similar point like our religion about 10000 years earlier. To that time we discovered many dozens of scientific "deities", like energy, force, acceleration, mass, or electric charge. Each of these "deities" has got its own "followers". Our science became more and more polymorphic. The whole domains of science became increasingly separated from each other, creating their own "temples" (research institutes and universities), for example, of magnetism, electricity, or kinematics. However, owing to Einstein and other visionaries, the scientists intuitively recognized that the polymorphic science can never correctly describe the uniform Nature. The search for a unified description of Nature began.

The ancient humans have been forced to change their religious paradigm and abandon their "private" deities. They were forced to accept that also the holy tree and the holy mountain in their direct environment had to be created by the same "universal" God. In a similar way, all scientists of our global civilization have to change their scientific paradigm today. They have to accept that their private holy terms, whether in the quantum physics, in elementary particle physics, or in electrodynamics, have all been created from one scientific Oneness, the Universal Creative Potential, the Universal Unity of the Unified Family of all physical quantities. Neither energy nor mass, nor electric charge, nor any other physical quantity, should be considered separately in our new physics. The polymorphic physics of the 20th century has to be replaced with the Unified Physics, the first uniform description of the surely uniform Nature.

3. Beyond the paradigm boundary

As recently discussed in previous articles on this blog, the boundary between the old and new paradigm is a sharp cut, much sharper than a threshold between two rooms in the same flat. The paradigm change is even much more than a change of clothes in a fitting room of a department store. To change a paradigm is like crossing the death limit between our present life and our next life, after our reincarnation. As the reincarnation means a rebirth of our soul in a new human body, our appearing on the other side of the paradigm boundary (compare the picture) means that we have left our previous "physical body" and are beginning to build our "new body". All physical quantities of the previous "physical body", all polymorphic "deities" of the 20th century science have to remain on the old-paradigm side of the boundary. All what we have taken with us over the boundary is our scientific "soul", our knowledge and experience. Practically, it means the knowledge that the whole Universe, including the Universal Creative Potential itself, is quantized. And it means also the conviction that the uniform Nature can be described with our human brains. And perhaps also the supposition that the spontaneous fluctuations of the Creative Potential, which I have called "fluctuons" already in my first paper concerning the unification in physics (1992), are the first step to create everything else. That is all.

We are standing on the new-paradigm side without our "physical body". But we are completely free. Free to build our new "body" of physics without the diseases of the old one. Free to open our new perspective, free to reach new horizons. And this new perspective is wonderful. I know it, because I am already here, waiting for you. Do not let me wait alone too long. Just follow me.
