People swing into two extreme ends of the pendulum when it comes to prophesy.
1.)Knowing the future is possible and thus there must be a being behind prophesy, to whom the future is as clear as the past.
2.) Knowing anything about the future, at any time at any place is impossible.
Given these two 'religio-intellectual prisons', it is impossible to understand some messages, like some in the bible. Reading the bible, it is hard not conclude that sometimes people can foresee…Continue
The question of 'miracles', or lack of them, are prone to unsubstanciated 'if-thens' that make people unable to explore rich middle grounds. The following are extreme ends of the pendulum.
1.)Miracles can happen. Thus we leave in a world where anything can happen at anywhere at any time. Furthermore there must be an omnipotent being behind them exactly like the one described by religions.
2.)Miracles cannot happen. Therefore we leave in an entirely mechanical world like the one…
It is undeniable that some of what religions, spirituality etc termed it as 'miraculous healing' do infact happen. Faced with this fact, the so called scientists created a knwoledge like envelope to package ignorance and then termed it 'placebo effect'. The beleifs, knowledge etc, or in short, mind, is temporarily acknowledged that it can affect matter. However, what is under the bed is the fact that we don't yet understand the mind-matter interaction. Furthermore, if you try to use the…Continue
Like I have said, many say that we leave in a 'multidimensional reality' but we only experience a 'dimension' that we are in tunned with. This is akin to tunning to specific radio station. However this still leave a lot of questions unanswered. The radio or TV happens to amplify a specific frequency by (some its components) vibrating 'sympatheticaly' with the external signal. So do the observer in a multidimensional reality have neurons etc that vibrate coherently with a signal from a…Continue
As has been said by many, frequencies can model unseen realities that inhabit the same space just like the radio waves from all the stations can (invisibly) coexist in the same space. This is due to the wavelike nature of matter termed deBroglie waves. But as normally presented it is too hand-waving and it leave several questions unanswered. For instance, why doesn't things easily pop into/ visibility if all it take is to tune in/out of specific bandwidth?
Remember that I had…Continue
Remember I said that a scientist should re-state the conservative laws as 'the unseen donnot turn to the seen at least not without an equal amount of the seen turning to the unseen'. This is because our senses can't discern the difference between creation and manifestation of the unmanifest, should we try to falsify such claims as 'matter cannot be created or destroyed'. This then is essencialy what happen when a thing 'goes' to the unseen. The conservative 'law' demands a way of making an…Continue
We intuit ex nihilo nihil. Yet if things surreptitiously appeared out of 'thin air', it would be impossible to acertain the so called conservative laws scientifically. This is because both the scenario of creation and manifestation, i.e two totaly different events, would appear as though exactly the same phenomenon to our senses. This also highlight limitation in science (i.e a posteriori knowledge).
This mean we must actualy change how we state the conservative laws of nature. This…Continue

A good definition of 'science' is simply knowledge obtained via observation. Then 'pseudoscience' is the 'knowledge' that is claimed to be science but which actualy is not. The problem is that what constitute 'enough evidence' is actually subjective. To some pple, the school teaching and the satelite photograph of earth is not enough evidence that the earth is round. So to them, 'round earth theory' is pseudoscience!
A good attitude of a scientist or any other 'truth seeker' should…Continue
Etheric body must have puzzling properties. First, of course it better not knock the visible objects around. So for that purpose, it must not interact with the visible objects. However, it must also, follow the visible body. This, amongst other things, mean it must interact with visible objects!
First note that how psi intervein with the seen cannot possibly be 'beyond science'. In science, we don't only exermine the seen. We are also interested with the unseen provided that they influence the seen. Since psi is just that, the influence of the seen by the unseen, there has to be scientific explanation.
The scientific theory of psi must answer some tantalizing questions. Perharps the most daunting one is why the forces associated with psi aren't seen by physicists to move the…Continue
The common excuse is that 'spirit cannot be defined' can be appealing because it can be taken to mean 'spirit is too loafty to define' and who doesn't like 'spirit' enjoying such a status? However, when we close exermine things in general, we soon find that everything has this tendency of posing insurmountable challenge when you try to define. So 'spirit cannot be defined' isn't as impresive as such. Specifically, yes, we can define 'spirit' like we can, everything else and no, we can't…Continue
