SCIENCE and SPIRITUALTY
The nexus of science and spirituality is the intellectual high ground
upon which the intuitive philosophical understandings of ancient
Taoism and Buddhism dovetail neatly with the cutting-edge
empirical observations of contemporary science.
INTUITIVE UNDERSTANDING OF THE ANCIENTS
There is that which does not belong to materialism and which is not reached by the knowledge of philosophers who fail to see that, fundamentally, there is no reality in external objects. The Buddha

EMPIRICAL OBSERVATION OF QUANTUM PHYSICISTS
Those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it --- an independent reality, in the ordinary physical sense, can neither be ascribed to the phenomena nor to the agencies of observation. Niels Bohr
THE FUTURE OF RELIGION?
“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.” Albert Einstein
STELLAR VISIONS FROM AN ASTROPHYSICIST
“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” “The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.” Carl Sagan
"If science proves some belief of Buddhism wrong, then Buddhism will have to change. In my view, science and Buddhism share a search for the truth and for understanding reality. By learning from science about aspects of reality where its understanding may be more advanced, I believe that Buddhism enriches its own worldview." The Dalai Lama
