Can We Make Scientific Breakthroughs With Contemplation?

Can we contemplate to solve 'unsolved problems' in science?

That's the only way you can do it, Einstein himself admitted every new discoveries he made come from insights.

But science is itself just a model and not really 'true', and contemplation reveals the absolute truth about it.

@How to be wise Contemplation doesn't just reveal Absolute truths, it also reveals relative ones.

I have a strong suspicion that the mechanism of evolution is insight at the cellular level, not random mutation. The same insights happening in your mind are happening within individual cells, which is the source of creativity.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

@Leo Gura Microtubul's are an interesting subject. Some theorize that they may be responsible for biological consciousness. 95 % of our genetic code is not yet understood. You gotta wonder what may be hidden there and has yet to be discovered about our past and future.

@Shin Except gravity isn't nothing. Lol. Where did gravity come from? Some scientists really don't know how to think.

I will add an amazing book about evolution to my book list in the future. It's a real paradigm-buster.

@Leo Gura That sounds like it will be a good one for sure. 

Here's a thought too. Space itself could provide a sort of hibernation or suspended animation for genetic material to be spread throughout the universe. Sometimes planets collide. Or take a massive direct hit from an asteroid that could eject genetic material high in the atmosphere into space. It is possible that we hitched a ride on the back of a comet or asteroid, or meteor from another location to be here. Who knows, maybe we have distant relatives living in another part of the universe- no pun intended.

@cetus56 Of course that's possible, but it doesn't answer the question of how life originated in the first place in the universe. It had to start somewhere.

It's more plausible that it's all a story in the mind.

Wait, what if gravity is Love and Hawking is right.

@Leo Gura Life started as a potential out of nothingness along with an infinite number of other possibilities.

@cetus56 Don't be too quick to answer every question with, "God did it."

Origin of life is a good question for science to answer.

Origin of life is the truth I was after before starting spirituality.  I ended up at "something to do with the moon and the ocean waves". ?

But now I see this question as irrelevant, but who am I to say what is relevant. ?

That's called the panspermia hypothesis, I'm not mistaken.

@How to be wise That depends on how we define science.  In a way, self-inquiry is science because you are finding empirical ways to determine that beliefs you cling to lack foundation.  It's applied phenomenology.  Now, you can argue that this ain't science because hypotheses aren't verifiable by another person.  But this is just semantics.  The bottom-line is that self-inquiry work is at a minimum quasi-scientific in its aim at truth through direct experience. There's just no verifiability since we can't crawl inside each other's minds.  However, we can assume we are all talking about the same stuff because we can talk about it, but without certainty. Science loves certainty.  Self-inquiry has a lot of arrows pointing in the direction of being a scientific inquiry.  But there's also some distinctions that can be drawn.  Lack of verifiability by another person of the proposed hypothesis is a huge one.  Science doesn't like that.  Science likes the idea of above-board verifiability, no shenanigans.  Scientists tend to  think mystics and other wacky theorists (from the scientists' perspective) took one too many puffs off the magic dragon, if you know what I mean.  Fantasy airlifting a dying reality to higher love.  Cute, they say.  Very cute.  Keep dreaming junior, they snort internally.

I wrote a reply to this discussion but decided to post it in my journal instead (in case anyone is interested).
