Between science and soul

Posted on Updated on

At the moment, my life revolves around a mountain of scientific reading. Every read book or article just inspires me to put three others on the must-read list. Philosophy, quantum physics, psychology and neurobiology (okay and everything else actually, to be honest, I’m kind of greedy) will hopefully (and soon) create a platform of knowledge from which I will unfold ground-breaking research. Or just produce an A on my thesis. Whichever.

While my brain is struggling to store information and expand neural networks at the same speed I stuff it with more information, I stumbled upon this quote. Instantly, it allowed me to access the only knowledge that really matter; the wisdom from which I came; the blueprint of my soul.

I don’t know if it will do the same for you but nevertheless I wanted to share it with you.


“And we are nature. We are nature seeing nature. We are nature with a concept of nature. Nature weeping. Nature speaking of nature to nature. The red-winged blackbird flies in us.”

    What’s your primary/major field of study? And what drives your scientific exploration thirst?

      It’s Educational Psychology and my focus is mostly on development and collective processes, which can be examined from about a billion different angles – which is why my head is spinning :D I guess I’m trying to expose (in lack of a better word) the patterns emerging through a cross-scientific approach, making the path through chaos and complexity visible.

    As a retired earth scientist with continuing interests in astrophysics and mathematics and philosophy I, too, have waded through mountains of scientific reading in my time, and I appreciate your sentiments. I am one of those scientists who have no doubts about the existence of God, and after a lifetime of searching for spiritual realities I have formulated my understanding of the nature of the relationship between God and humanity, which I have posted on
    Perhaps you will be interested. please see “Future Spirituality”

      I haven’t had time to read through all of it (yet!) but I very much liked your Soul Communication and I’m looking forward to dive into the rest.
      Where spirituality historically has been regarded as something mysterious, and mostly irrelevant at least from a scientific standpoint, I think current research is slowly approaching the possibility of understanding it as something slightly more tangible. Maybe.
      Personally, I feel very inspired by reading Karen Barad’s account of agential realism as well as Brian Massumi’s examination of affect and how their thoughts correlate with esoteric texts about an astral reality. Just to mention a few..
      .. and so the mountain grows :)
