How can we actually attain reality as it is beyond religions and contemporary sciences?!
Question from the Internet:
“Why is atheism increasing in 2022 and the future?”
Religion is an attempt to fill the vacuum between what we can actually feel, perceive and research and what we “suspect” is “out there”. We substitute tangible and realistic “knowing” with belief.
From ancient times human beings have been sensing that we exist in a system of reality that is greater than us, we sense and even feel that there are forces that govern us and determine our lives.
We observe multiple periodically recurring events and different cycles that are part of life in Nature and we also get to know a certain “linear” development through history and evolution as if there was an intelligent plan according to which the whole system develops and grows.
Of course, scientists feel the same and try to find a “standard model” or “theory of everything” that could describe the force-field we exist in and the plan according to which we all develop and quantum physics brought us very close but not close enough.
The bottom line is, we almost “know”, we can almost “touch” that single, all-encompassing force-field surrounding us and that is responsible for the laws of Nature we cannot escape or ignore but since we have no ability — yet — to actually, realistically and tangibly recognize and describe this singular force-field with its developmental plan we complement this vacuum with blind faith.
On the other hand, there is an internal need, pressure in us that has been also growing and developing through human development that makes us want to know, recognize and correspond with those forces that govern our lives, we want to know that deterministic plan according to which Nature develops so we could find out what our actual Human role and purpose is in that plan.
This inner pressure and need have become very strong in our generation, especially among young people who cannot be satisfied anymore with ‘simple faith” and the promises that we will “get answers” after we die. Young and modern people want answers right here and right now and the premises and promises of religion cannot satisfy that need.
And here comes a unique, empirical natural science that provides the tools for a very different research and attainment of reality. This science claims that we can actually, realistically and tangible recognize, research and communicate with all the so far hidden forces that govern our lives and as a result, we can learn about Nature’s deterministic evolutionary plan and about our own predetermined role and purpose in it.
As a result, we can actually take our fate into our own hands and by adapting ourselves to this plan and using the recognized forces hidden in Nature we can become actual, active and equal partners to the whole system, attaining it to such a depth that we will feel as if we ourselves designed and governed it.
This method approaches the research and attainment of reality differently from religions and known sciences. With this method the observer does not stay static, trying to manipulate and enter reality in order to use it for our own sake as we see it fit through our inherently egocentric and subjective viewpoint. With this method, the observer takes it upon oneself to start changing, developing and upgrading oneself until the observer becomes adapted to reality and not the other way around.
By becoming similar to Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent living — life-creating and life-sustaining — system through unique, mutual human interconnections, we can build a Nature-like Human network that through its similarity becomes a sensor, a unique instrument that can detect and understand everything that happens in Nature while also attuning itself to the overall, deterministic evolutionary plan.
We are the only part of Nature that can adjust itself to the system consciously, purposefully by our own efforts, leading to that conscious, integral partnership mentioned above. This is how we can obliterate any need for blind faith and come to very a precise, actual, tangible and “visceral” attainment, sensing, and understanding of Nature’s system, its laws and forces and the role we have to play in it through our whole being.
