My need to feel "meaning" is the reason for my interest in the essence of religion and how it can evolve to for Man including me and the human need for meaning. Simone describes my interest
I believe that one identical thought is to be found—expressed very precisely and with only slight differences of modality—in. . .Pythagoras, Plato, and the Greek Stoics. . .in the Upanishads, and the Bhagavad Gita; in the Chinese Taoist writings and. . .Buddhism. . .in the dogmas of the Christian faith and in the writings of the greatest Christian mystics. . .I believe that this thought is the truth, and that it today requires a modern and Western form of expression. That is to say, it should be expressed through the only approximately good thing we can call our own, namely science. This is all the less difficult because it is itself the origin of science. Simone Weil….Simone Pétrement, Simone Weil: A Life, Random House, 1976, p. 488
"To restore to science as a whole, for mathematics as well as psychology and sociology, the sense of its origin and veritable destiny as a bridge leading toward God---not by diminishing, but by increasing precision in demonstration, verification and supposition---that would indeed be a task worth accomplishing." Simone Weil
The purpose of science is true as is the essence of religion. Two essential truth cannot be opposed. It just means that humanity as a whole lacks the quality necessary to to put the corruption of science and religion aside long enough to experience that they are complimentary from a higher conscious perspective.
Your idea of awakening to realize we are God goes against science since it denies the necessity of fragments which you consider a dream
I am well aware that I am in a minority. I know that ideas suggesting our conscious source must be hated by secularism. A person accepting a conscious source and our relation to it cannot be a secularist. But even though it is a minority view, who am I to ridicule those like Plato, Simone Weil, Prof Needleman, Basarab Nicolescu, and others all aware of the complimentary relationship between the non-corrupted horizontal purpose of science and the vertical purpose of religion
The vertical evolution of religion is just part of the process. The question is if the vertical evolution is possible because of our attachments to technology? Who knows?
