Science: The problem of one-sided knowledge
“People who do not know that there is a highest goal in life consider anything but the highest goal valuable. So they wander around like blind people who are led by other blind people and get entangled more and more in the web of aimlessness. "- Srimad-Bhägavatam 7.5.31
The concept of Veda ("knowledge; revelation") is alien to the modern worldview. The 20th century will go down in history as the century of science and progress. Science today decides what counts as "knowledge" and "truth" , and progress provides the proof: What science says is true, because it is objectively verifiable and enables concrete inventions and improvements, in other words, progress.
From the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment and the industrial revolution, over a millennium has passed, over thirty generations; but now the last three generations have seen the fruits of this long development ripen at breathtaking speed within a single century. Today, at the end of the 20th century, it is an open secret: the fruits did not keep what the gardeners promised.
There was progress, but: progress where? In which direction? With what aim? After initial confidence and even euphoria about the future of mankind in view of the celebrated progress, a phase of disillusionment is dawning today. In the nineties, due to insight or shaken up by the signs of the times, people become more and more aware of the shortcomings of this blind progress, and even worried voices can be heard that foresee dire consequences.
Science made progress possible. Science seeks to explore the truth - the truth about nature, the laws of nature, and life - and progress seeks to demonstrate in practice the usefulness of science. The key question here, however, is: What do we mean by "benefit", "knowledge" and "truth"?
These goals - utility, knowledge, truth - are not clearly defined, and therefore science and progress do not know what they are actually aiming at. If there is more research to be done first,
what is truth and, depending on it, true knowledge in general, then this means that at present there is still ambiguity or even falsehood. And what hope is there of finding an unknown truth on this basis? Or is it the people who practice science and progress not at all about such lofty, unprofitable goals as knowledge and truth?
If we look more closely at the universities and business empires, the promoters of progress and science, the suspicion arises that today much shorter-term and more short-sighted goals are given priority. Numerous short-term successes were reported in the 20th century, while the long-term problems were postponed. But "the future has already begun". Today we are faced with the former long-term as a short-term threat: environmental destruction, wars, crime, central control, natural disasters, new diseases, etc.
These problems, which overshadow the positive aspects of progress, cannot be blamed across the board on science; but they are alarming indicators that something is wrong in the modern worldview - and this was decisively shaped by science.
The point here is not to judge science, but to criticize the worldview that depends on it; for it is this aimless, short-sighted worldview that causes the useful and neutral achievements of progress to have a harmful or even devastating effect, precisely because they are misused by people with this wrong worldview. What destroys cannot be right, not even natural, because in nature every destruction is always a transition to a new harmony, which cannot be said of modern destruction. So it cannot be denied that a less one-sided worldview will also question the innocence of science and progress - because they are not that innocent.
Science and progress are the gods of the 20th century who are uncritically revered by people and nations. Countless human sacrifices are made to them (on the streets, in factories, in military operations, even at
Sports and entertainment), because everyone is convinced that this cult is worthwhile. God used to be served, and progress is now served. What serves progress can be enforced with state power. Laws, politics and the school system are being adapted to progress - but does anyone ever wonder where this progress is going to lead? Without a goal one has no direction, and without direction every step, including "progress", is uncertain.
The gods called science, research and progress promise the knowledge of knowledge and truth. But by what means do their priests strive to achieve these goals? In order for their gods to enjoy undisputed world domination, they, the secret priests, have introduced the belief that reality - the "truth" - is that which can be seen, measured and analyzed. The tools and working methods were chosen accordingly. It was overlooked here that this choice only takes into account the visible, measurable and analyzable, only the material, from the start. However, that was not seen as a problem. What is there beyond the material?
Science believers therefore believe that reality is limited to the material. And even if there were something beyond matter, then this "something" is negligible, and science, research and progress can confidently advance without taking this "something" into account. This worldview calls itself "materialism" or, to put it more diplomatically, "realism": one believes that reality is material. One only believes what can be scientifically grasped; and what is "scientific" has already been defined in terms of materialism. This view that only the material is real was declared a priori to be the truth on the basis of which one wanted to strive for truth - through science, research and Progress: In this way, those who believe in science and progress go round in circles and are not in a position to slow down the slingshot of one-sided civilization - although all modern achievements are at their disposal.
"Science" and "progress" are magical words today that allow practically anything. Because their insights, it is said, are of use to everyone. But these insights can never convey a complete truth, as they are only limited to a narrow section of reality, to the material, measurable,
Usable. The instruments used for research are correspondingly limited; and because the tools and the people who use them are imperfect and flawed, the knowledge they arrive at is inevitably imperfect and imperfect. Therefore, scientific knowledge has to be revoked or corrected again and again, and even the apparently proven knowledge is only relatively valid. In addition, even the foundations of this knowledge have only relative validity; some even urgently need to be relativized, for example the beliefs accepted as axioms * that only what is "scientifically" comprehensible is real and that, conversely, everything real must also be scientifically comprehensible. This belief is based on the assumption that nowhere in the Universe laws or factors operate that are inaccessible to science (such as non-physical dimensions, interdimensional connections or unpredictable factors such as God and gods).
None of these beliefs in science have been proven, and yet modern science, at least the official one (the materialistic, empirical), builds on them a worldview that has a decisive influence on social systems, politics, economics and research worldwide. In all schools this materialistic worldview is passed on to the new generations of pupils and students as apparently objective knowledge - according to higher instructions - and it is assumed as "knowledge" in the diploma examinations. That is an astonishing claim, especially when you consider that it is raised on the basis of axioms that are not only unproven but also questionable.
Today's decisive science can only research the visible and measurable and concludes from this that there is nothing other than the earthly visible and measurable. At least she's not researching anything else. And this has now proven to be momentous blindness. For all the reasons mentioned, a new concept of "truth", "knowledge" and "science" is necessary today. Such a new and at the same time oldest concept is Veda, which will now be considered in more detail below.
• Axiom: (in science :) basic assumption that requires no further proof (from Greek äxionia, "that which has been found to be true").
..light knowledge (veda) includes material and spiritual knowledge (jnäna-vijnäna). When you have understood it, there will be nothing further for you to recognize. "- Bhagavad-gltä 7.2
In Sanskrit, the ancient Indian high language, "real knowledge" is called Veda. The makeshift translation "real knowledge" already indicates that the Sanskrit word Veda means more than just "knowledge" in the sense of learned facts and data. The latter corresponds to the modern one Concept of "science" discussed on the previous pages. Facts and data captured by material means and materialistic axioms have limited validity. They are only applicable to the material realms of reality, and even there they prove to be imperfect and ultimately destructive because they ignore or misunderstand the most important aspects of reality, the factors "life" and "consciousness". According to the materialistic axioms, "life" is nothing more than organic matter. Veda teaches first that this is not the case. Life is not just organic matter and is therefore beyond the reach of materialistic science. A living body is more than just matter. A seed is more than just the sum of the molecules that make it up, because otherwise science would long ago have been able to produce a seed synthetically or chemically.
People search for "knowledge" - so there has to be knowledge that already exists. Science and research just want to discover this knowledge. This type of primal knowledge, called truth (Veda), does not have to be invented, it just has to be found thus independent of science and research. Truth is always there, is not tied to place and time, is always valid, universally true and timelessly up-to-date. Truth never needs to be corrected. It only needs to be discovered, ie freed from the coverings through which it is covered (for the view of the human being) Whoever frees his consciousness in this way and adjusts it to the frequency of knowledge and truth - Veda - will suddenly see the outside world in a completely different light.
"(Sacred) knowledge", a timeless revelation of human and divine truths (as opposed to dogmatic belief and speculative science). "
“Yasyämatam tasya matam / matam yasya na veda saw” “He has true knowledge (Veda) who recognizes that one cannot know what is true [by one's own strength] *; he who thinks he has known what is true does not know what is true. "- Kena Upanisad 2.3
Veda, by definition, refers to knowledge that has a lasting character and is not subject to constantly changing ideological and economic interests. Genuine knowledge (Veda) must therefore be universally valid and must not be limited in time, geographical or confessional. Everything that contains this Veda truth or is based on it is called "Vedic". There must therefore be Vedic science, Vedic literature, Vedic religion, Vedic medicine, Vedic music, etc., all of which represent a harmonious whole. These properties - harmonious, universally valid and complete in itself - are the necessary indications that point to a divine inspiration.
Traces of the Veda can be found everywhere. So "Vedic" does not just mean "Indian" or "Eastern", as is often wrongly believed. At different times and in different places people coined expressions such as "cosmic consciousness", "esoteric truth", "spiritual wisdom" or "divine." Revelation "to point out what the Sanskrit language describes with the word Veda. Like mosaic stones, their findings can be inserted into an overall picture. Those who know the mosaic are able to identify the individual stones and their relationship to the overall picture. The expression Veda The mosaic example also reveals the deeper meanings of Veda: Veda is a kind of secret knowledge that cannot be acquired through research, scripture study, Indology, theology or asceticism and meditation.
No matter how long you can examine a single piece of the mosaic, it will never be possible to see the whole picture by just doing this. "Secret knowledge" does not mean, however, that no one knows it; a secret can very well be known, but only if it is revealed. We can speculate about a secret, but we will never know for sure whether we are speculating correctly.
But if someone who knows the secret tells us - shares it with us - then the "secret" has become "knowledge" for us.
The same principle applies to the Veda, which can be called the highest mystery because it imparts knowledge about the reality behind all appearances and about the highest origin (God). This divine secret knowledge can only be revealed from a corresponding source: from God (and divine sources). This makes this knowledge on the one hand a secret and on the other hand accessible to everyone, because God is everywhere. Elements of the Veda can therefore be found all over the world, in all cultures and religions - also in India. Yes, India is even considered the home of the Veda, because the Veda appeared there in its original form and in a unique fullness. However, this does not make the Veda an Indian truth, any more than the sun is Indian just because it appears in the east.
If one objectively contrasts the various traditions of divine revelation, one can find comparatively * that the most comprehensive revelation of Veda can be found in the circle of ancient Indian high culture, which is therefore also called Vedic high culture. The written Veda traditions of this high culture (the "Vedic scriptures") are very extensive. It is said that a single human life is not enough to read through them even once, let alone study them.
• The comparison mentioned in no way means opposition, but rather - in the truest sense of the word - comparison. The overall picture of the Veda can show that all revelations, no matter how dissimilar, ultimately point to the same goal. Those who really care about the goal and not just about their own "piece of the mosaic" (= dogma) will be grateful to recognize their own even in the seemingly foreign. • Practical, worldly knowledge that is still valid today in many ways The extent of this knowledge lets the Vedic high culture and the entire history of mankind appear in a completely new light. The oldest treasures of knowledge challenge the self-criticism of modern man. Were the earlier high cultures perhaps not so primitive and underdeveloped?
Evidence of high Vedic culture
• Ayur-Veda: "the science of long life", Vedic medicine; an advanced, versatile diagnostics, prophylactic method and medicine that not only takes into account the gross physical body, but also the energetic ("subtle") body. The Ayur-Veda originally comprised a great deal of knowledge about the psychosomatic treatment of causes, because it was known that many diseases have subtle causes. According to Ayur-Veda, diseases are signals from the body that indicate that the relationship between the elements in the body is disturbed. The correction of the balance is based on a detailed nutritional science. The Ayur-Veda attaches central importance to a vegetarian diet, appropriate raw food and fasting, as well as correct breathing.
• Ayur-Veda medicine is not a desperate struggle against death, but a support for natural health within a reasonable framework, knowing full well that health is not the highest human good. Because death is under no circumstances avoidable. The crazy pairing of recklessness, indulgence and the sick fear of getting sick has become the main cause of many illnesses today. The original Ayur-Veda is no longer completely accessible today because a lot of knowledge has been lost, because many medicinal herbs are no longer available today or have lost some of their effectiveness and because today's Ayur-Veda doctors only have limited information and training opportunities To be available. • However, one should not underestimate the power of Ayur-Veda. If today the billions that are spent on the development of chemical "medicines", on vivisection and questionable research were invested in the new development of the Ayur-Veda (with corresponding educational work and changes in the way of life and diet on a broad basis), would be paid off in next to no time Time to improve the physical and also the mental health of mankind. • Jyotir-Veda: "the science of the luminous heavenly bodies", the Vedic astronomy and astrology (the knowledge of the connections between cosmic and earthly realities).
• Purana cosmology: millennia-old information about the universe with information that science largely only rediscovered in the 20th century, e.g. that the universe is expanding (or has expanded), that space is curved in itself, that matter is a form of Energy is; that the universe has existed for billions of years, that the earth is 4 to 6 billion years old and has gone through a glowing phase, that the sun will at some point become a "red giant" and burn up. How did you come to this knowledge? Certainly not through research with technical means. That they did not have such means does not mean that they were backward. Rather, the Vedic sources say clearly that they did not need such a complex, environmentally destructive technology! Their insights came from higher sources, and so it happens that they knew a lot that we do not yet know or have only recently rediscovered with a huge amount of effort (and in a destructive context) • When sources provide such astonishing information that only comes with thousands of years later technical means are discovered, then one should also take seriously the other information that comes from these sources, even if it e contradict today's worldview. In fact, the Vedic scriptures provide much such information, especially the revelations about God and the gods. As for cosmology, these sources also provide information that is still unknown today or hidden from the public, e.g. that the universe is not empty but multidimensional; that each dimension has its own world with higher-dimensional beings, civilizations and forms of energy; that there are extraterrestrial intelligences that are of a divine and less divine disposition and have been visiting earth since time immemorial, up to the present day. • Vimäna-Veda: the science of planetary and interplanetary flying objects that used forms of energy that are largely unknown today. Many of these writings are lost or have not yet been translated. The recently rediscovered writings (e.g. Samara Sütradhara, Vaimäni
ka-sästra) are fragmentary and difficult to understand for today's people, but they give an idea of ​​how complex and advanced the original knowledge was.6 These texts describe various types of aircraft with technical details (construction instructions, puzzling metal alloys, encrypted formulas, connections between intellectual and material energies, etc.). Today, when even governments and the highest military authorities confirm the real existence of "unidentified flying objects", 17 this part of Vedic knowledge - which has existed for over five thousand years - is being rehabilitated again. • Sthäpatya-Veda: "the science of architecture"; Architecture, temple construction, statics, sacred geometry, geomancy (consideration of earthly power points). Even today there are testimonies of this amazing architecture, e.g. some of the South Indian trapezoidal pyramids (sanskr.gopuras) or temple pyramids, such as those of Tanjore, on the top of which a single stone weighing almost 100 tons rests at a height of 70 meters. Today, large trucks with kilometers of concrete ramp would have to be used to bring such a stone up to this height. How did the ancient Indians do it?
• Dhanur-Veda: "the science of fighting with weapons"; descriptions of martial arts with simple weapons (stick, bow, club) up to fighting with highly developed weapons. Sanskrit basically distinguishes between two categories of weapons: sastra, weapons that be operated mechanically or by hand, and astra, weapons that function with higher energy and can only be used through mantras or the power of thought. The battle of these weapons is reminiscent of modern neutron and nuclear weapons, e.g. the Näräyanästra and Brahmästra There were explosions of certain weapons, and writings such as the Mahabhärata report the strange detail that certain survivors' hair fell out later, which is reminiscent of the effects of radioactivity. In the excavated city of Mohenjo-daro (on the Indus) one even found radioactive skeletons thousands of years old. The original Sastra-sästra ("General Register of Arms") describes that it is to everyone
these weapons also gave a counter-weapon to neutralize their effect. Still other weapons could be aimed at individual targets without the environment being affected, or were able to search for their targets independently (by means of sound or temperature, or guided by thoughts). * • These weapons, too, testify to the The height of the Vedic culture, because they were only used in emergencies, namely in the defense of peace and in the fight against dark forces who misused this knowledge for their own claims to power and instigated technological wars (thousands of years ago!). • 1 Sähkhya: "Analysis"; structure of matter and the atomic states of aggregation; explanation that matter is a form of energy, but not an independent energy; the material forms emerge from higher-dimensional fields and ultimately from structures of consciousness. • Silpa-sästra: "Book of Diverse Reshaping"; Geometry, mathematics, the art of fast mental arithmetic, the conversion of Sanskrit mantras into scientific formulas. • Natyä-Sästra: "Book of physical expression"; rules for the writing of theater pieces, for dramaturgy, dance art and temple dance. Every facial expression, every gesture and foot movement has a special meaning in certain dance forms or sets a • Gandharva-vidyä: "Music ", literally:" the knowledge conveyed by the Gandharvas * "; singing, command of instruments, raga-tonal art with voice or instruments, composition, im provisation and systematic variation of basic melodies. • Samskrti:" the (according to cosmic patterns) ordered language "(Sanskrit); Language art, grammar, metrics, prosody, poetics.
• The last category shows that not only the content of the Vedic scriptures indicates a materially and spiritually advanced culture, but also its language. Sanskrit is not simply a "Bronze Age language", nor does it sound like the language of cave dwellers. Is it not surprising that the oldest written language in the world is also the most advanced language? (Twelve years are only necessary for serious basic studies .)
• Sanskrit describes itself as devanagari, which literally means: "the language that is spoken in the cities (nagarf) of the gods (deva)". The inexhaustible vocabulary of Sanskrit, its grammar, syntax and metrics, the phonetic laws and complex word meanings - these factors all point to the high level of Vedic culture. Today one can hardly imagine, that Sanskrit with its complexity was a spoken language at that time. • In many cases, the areas of knowledge outlined above do not correspond to individual books, but are mentioned in the form of various text passages across the individual scriptures. However, these passages make up only a small part of the totality of the Vedic scriptures. Much more important in Vedic culture was the spiritual development of man (from magical rituals to demigod worship to highest, personal knowledge of God.) Therefore these parts of the Vedic scriptures are much more extensive. • The Upanisads, the Vedanta-sütra, the Puranas, the Rämäyana, the Mahäbhärata, the Bhagavad-gltä and the Srimad-Bhägavatam impart the highest spiritual knowledge. These scriptures contain detailed revelations of the direct words of God * Gandharvas: higher dimensional beings whose appearance is reminiscent of the biblical descriptions of angels. • and also the words of many great God messengers. They describe God's incarnations and also God's personal appearances, such as the appearance of Krsna five thousand years ago, which was one of the last climaxes of Vedic culture and culminated in the revelation of Bhagavad-gita ("The Song of God"). Since that time this has become spiritual Knowledge, starting from Krsna, in a teacher-student succession (Parampara) passed down to the present day. Parampara and written tradition ran parallel, that is, they protected and controlled each other. Thanks to this double support, the core of the Veda remained in In addition to a growing number of new religions and philosophies, India has always been preserved in its originality and can still be conveyed to interested students today by the real Parampara representatives (the author is also a student of such a Parampara.)
People in the West may wonder why God appeared in India and not in the West. Obviously, this objection arises from a limited worldview, for the Veda is not tied to a specific place and does not appear only in India. Or is the sun, just because it rises in the east to our eyes, limited to the east?
Not everything that comes from India is "Vedic". Veda has nothing to do with the Indian nation, although the Veda - in its form as a concrete, original revelation - was written down in the geographical area of ​​the Indian subcontinent.
In summary, the following definitions result: Veda: "Knowledge, revelation"; divine knowledge that cannot be obtained through one's own efforts (such as through research, speculation or meditation). Veda is not restricted to scriptures, but can also be used in many other ways Vedic writings: Collective term for those wisdom books of India, which describe the Veda comprehensively, from all partial aspects up to the highest revelation of God. Vedas: The "four Vedas" called Yajur Veda, Rg Veda, Säma Veda and Atharva Veda. (Sometimes the term "Vedas" is also used as a collective term and then means the same as "Vedic writings".)
Prahlada Maharaja said: “I received this knowledge from the great sage Narada, who has a perfect divine vision (Naradad deva-darsanat). This knowledge is in every way scientific (jnänarh vijnäna-samyutam). It is based on logic and philosophy and it is free from all material pollution. "- Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.6.28
Modern science defends itself against the combination of terms like "science" and "revelation" because to it the belief that there are divine sources and revelations appears highly dubious. Science is an "ordered, consequently structured, coherent area of ​​knowledge" 7, and it is characterized by the fact that each of its knowledge is provable, since it is verifiable. Because the existence of God and the gods as well as divine revelations cannot be verified, they become of science is not considered as scientific factors. On the other hand, it must not be concealed that many religions reject and oppose the knowledge of science, or at least have done so for a long time. Many forms of religious (but) belief have over time as It has been proven wrong, ominous and dogmatic, which is why there has been a separation of religion and science in the West, and under the influence of certain historical epochs and ideological currents, there has even been open opposition.
When religion and science alienate each other, it means that something is wrong with both. "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." That was Albert Einstein's apt diagnosis
Today science and religion are largely viewed as opposites because science deals with the visible here and religion with the invisible hereafter. However, an impartial person will recognize that both areas meet in the middle and have much in common: Science and religion both strive for knowledge of the truth, and the core of this truth is life itself, because without life there would be neither consciousness nor knowledge . And dying is part of life. The key questions facing the scientific is dying? What is life What is matter What is the origin of matter? What is the origin of consciousness?
These are the most important questions of all, but it is precisely these questions that science delegates to philosophy and theology, on the grounds that these are • scientifically irrelevant questions because they can only be answered with subjective opinions. It quickly becomes apparent, however, that even philosophers and theologians are hopelessly overwhelmed by these decisive questions. They answer either with empty phrases, inconclusive speculations, or with nonsensical dogmas that have very little to do with either real science or real religion. What would be necessary would be a scientific religion or a religious science, at which point science and religion would no longer be different, because both would be about a verifiable, consistent answer to the most important questions of human existence.
Vedic science has fulfilled precisely these requirements since the memory of humans and the gods, because it simultaneously analyzes the variety of paths and the unity of the goal.
The discussion of Vedic science leads to a new concept of science. In current science it has become common practice to start from direct observation and hypothesis, then to discover a regularity through experiment and research, which ideally leads to the formulation of a law. In this way a hypothesis becomes a "proven knowledge". As already mentioned, this scientific approach has one major flaw: It only starts from the observable and therefore only applies to the observable. So science is not wrong or bad, but limited. The problem begins when the limited knowledge of science is raised to the sole truth, which leads to a materialistic worldview. Vedic criticism is not directed against the knowledge of science, but against the one-sided materialistic interpretation of these knowledge and the exclusion of all other knowledge. that do not fit into this worldview.
Today, knowledge is only scientifically recognized if it can be "proven" through repeatable manipulation of matter according to a formulated law. Because of this limitation to matter, science has shrunk to technology in the last three centuries
(Science = manipulation of matter = technology). Suddenly the manipulation of the matter, i.e. the measurable benefit (= profit!), Was the most important criterion for scientific research. The fact that the "unscientific" questions about consciousness, life and origin have no place in this materialistically defined science arises only from professional consequence, because every scientist is forced to convert his knowledge into money; and this requirement completely programs the objective and with it also training and research. Vedic science knows other goals and therefore also other methods. It is based on the basic knowledge that human perception and the "truth" obtained through it are always incomplete; therefore, humans are subject to illusions, imperfections, deceptions and (self-) deception and can ultimately only believe. This also applies without restriction to current science. From observation and research, she comes to certain conclusions; But these findings are never universally valid, because they were obtained in a limited three-dimensional area and are therefore only valid in this small section of observable matter. In addition, they are dependent on unproven basic assumptions (axioms), such as, ...
...that matter is the only reality ... that everywhere in the universe only the physical laws of nature that are known on earth apply ... that human sensory perception encompasses all of reality (and does not overlook the most important things)
The worldview of materialistic science stands or falls with the belief that there is nothing that cannot be empirically grasped. Because if there was something that had an influence on us without our being aware of it, the entire experimental research would only be valid to a limited extent, because unpredictable factors would always have to be reckoned with. The foremost factors of this kind are of course God and the gods, which is why modern science proceeds from the unproven belief that God and the gods do not exist, or at least have no influence on observable matter.
Materialistic science, which prides itself on verifiable objectivity, is in fact based on blind faith. Everyone has to believe. The only crucial question is: Who do I believe? Mine
Sensory perception? My worldview? Other people's worldview? Even the supposedly objective person cannot avoid faith. Vedic science integrates this fact from the very beginning and draws an important logical conclusion from it: Science means "finding true knowledge" = finding truth, because anything but truth is falsehood (false knowledge). False knowledge is imperfect, because only true knowledge is perfect. And because man is always imperfect, he can only attain true knowledge if he finds a perfect source of knowledge. Man himself can never be this perfect source of knowledge. Only a perfect being (= God) can be a perfect source of knowledge For us imperfect humans this means: Either it is possible to get knowledge from God, or our knowledge is necessarily always incomplete (imperfect). For this reason, modern science has limited itself to being technology and dealing with manipulation to satisfy the comprehensible matter. And mankind is trained to also dam to be satisfied with it, despite the high price ... Just the fact that man feels the unstoppable urge to research and to discover the laws of nature, and actually discovered some of these laws, proves that there are higher laws in matter that indicate a highest order. We get perfect knowledge of this highest order either from the perfect source (from God and the messengers from God) or nowhere, which would mean that we could never have real knowledge of the highest order (cosmos). That is the Vedic logic. If the researching person does not get knowledge from a divine source, he gets lost in endless research, because even if he touches on a principle of truth, he does not recognize it and just continues to speculate, aimlessly, endlessly, meaninglessly.
This is why Vedic science challenges man with a clearly defined goal: vedais ca sarvair aham eva ved-yah. This is how Krsna defines the goal of the Veda in the Bhagavad-glta (15.15). "In every form of Veda I (.aham) am the goal of knowledge (vedyaK)." The arc from the one Veda word (vedais ...) to the milder one (... vedyaK) indicates a double meaning. The first, literal meaning is: "The goal of all Vedic scriptures is to know Me." And the second - because the second Veda word (.vedyaK) "knows"
means: "The goal of all knowledge is to know Me." In other words, the goal of all striving for true knowledge (= science) is God, the perfect truth (in the verse: a-ha-m, the alpha and-Omega, the origin of everything, in which everything rests. Or, to put it more succinctly: Only that knowledge that God has as its goal is science. Vedic science is based on the knowledge that God exists and can therefore reveal himself The question remains, of course, what is meant by "God". At this point, however, it is only a matter of the principle: that God, if He exists, can also reveal himself. The Vedic scriptures offer a unique opportunity to learn a science that takes into account the existence of God and observable facts at the same time. Vedic science is not aimless because the aim is known; it is revealed, as is the path that leads to this goal, with all intermediate stages so that every person has the possibility of recognizing and achieving this goal. True science is conclusive, plausible, and its main points are easy to understand. The complicated formulas that are needed to make a knowledge materially usable are not lacking in Vedic science either, but they are only of subordinate importance. (They are encoded in word formulas as a secondary meaning of certain Sanskrit verses.) Vedic science is not about blind faith or an elitist university teaching, but about a universal, clear and systematic knowledge that every person who wants to recognize, understand and apply it practically in his own life. The intelligence is used here as a God-given instrument to test and understand the revealed Vedic knowledge. This is the very, correct use of intelligence. Everything else is an abuse of intelligence. "Intelligence is given by God as a means to get to God".
The imperfect person can only expect to find real knowledge (Veda) if he gets it from a perfect source. The Vedic scriptures call themselves such a source, but they do not call for uncritical faith, but - on the contrary - challenge man to study the Vedic knowledge with his intelligence and thereby the divine origin
of this revelation. In the Veda, science and religion are not separate, but united on a highest level. Anyone can scientifically verify this claim. How? By attaining this stage himself. As in every scientific experiment, the researching person must also observe all details in the Vedic experiment and comply with all regulations. Unfortunately, so far only a few people in the West have been willing to carry out the Vedic experiment properly, which is why only a few have been able to understand the true meaning of the Vedic scriptures.
In order to be able to understand the Vedic knowledge correctly, one must have recognized that one oneself - as a living, conscious being is not a product of matter. Otherwise one sees oneself and therefore also the world and the cosmos only as a material structure and overlooks the most important things. The shadow is believed to be reality. “The material body is ephemeral. But life [the soul] is immortal, immeasurable and eternal. "(Bhagavad-gltä 2.18)
It is only in this light that it is even possible to understand what the Vedic scriptures speak of and what they aim at: self-knowledge and the associated knowledge of God, i.e. the knowledge of one's own identity and one's own origin. Whoever takes this goal into consideration and internalizes it, develops detachment from matter (knowing that matter is not our true identity), and this detachment in turn is the criterion for true knowledge:
“Those who tread this path are determined in their purpose and their goal is one. The intelligence of the undecided, however, is ramified .... In the minds of those who are too attached to sensual enjoyment and material wealth and do not see the goal of life, this firm decision never comes ... "(Bhagavad-gltä 2.41,44a )
Those who are not ready to take this step should at least be willing to learn from those who have already taken this step. As the author of this book, I would like to emphasize that I do not claim to belong to those who have already taken this step with all consistency. But I have tried to learn sincerely from real Veda teachers who embody this consistent step forward, and it is only thanks to their encouragement that I have dared to write The Multidimensional Cosmos. Because of this
Work should now also have access to Vedic knowledge for those who did not have the time or the opportunity to study the original writings in detail.
Because the core statements and the statements relevant to today's people can be summed up into conclusive findings. These include science and esotericism as well as theology. These areas of knowledge, which today are treated completely separately in many places, mostly even as mutually exclusive, cannot really be separated in their essence. In order to open up these areas of holistic knowledge, a multidimensional world view is necessary, because the world - on this all mystery schools and initiation traditions agree - is multidimensional. Until recently, the Veda in its entire system from the first to the highest levels was known only to small circles of initiates, including in India. "Veda", the knowledge and wisdom that can only be attained through higher revelation, is therefore not a privilege of India. In this holy land, too, a decadence and infiltration set in over the centuries and millennia. The number of those who spoke the old Sanskrit language of the Vedic scriptures understood, became less and less, and these few were mostly members of the Brahmin elite class in the caste system, which was not at all interested in conveying the true meaning of the Vedic scriptures to the people (a first consequence of this true meaning would have been the disclosure that the caste system is not at all approved by the Vedic scriptures in this form!)
Again I would like to point out that in this book I am explaining Vedic science, esotericism and theology from the multidimensional view of the Vedic tradition and initiation school (and not according to the modern Indological interpretation). I ask everyone who reads this book to at least theoretically follow the Vedic experiment, that is (1.) to be open to the possibility that there is a God who can reveal himself, and (2.) with impartial intelligence and intuition verify that the Vedic revelation is a credible source of knowledge. As for me, I believe it is based on reasoning, personal review, and practical knowledge.
