The Apparent Dichotomy Of Science & Soul

by Conscious Reminder

Let’s First Define Science And Soul

According to the dictionary, science is “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.” Whereas the soul is the “the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.”

The Soul Connect

Do you believe all living beings have souls? Do you believe a part of you will remain in this real world after you die? Do you believe in life after death? Turns out most people believe in the immortality of the soul.

Science however does not understand the dichotomy of the body and soul. In science we are living creatures who cease to exist once we take our last breath, then we return to earth in form of components.

Is it because most theological doctrines support that the soul can never die? How would you explain the ancient men or the present day tribes who worship the ‘anima’ or the soul?

The Scientific Saga

“The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.

To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.”
-Albert Einstein

Whether or not there is a superhuman entity called God lies beyond the boundaries of scientific knowledge. National Academy of Sciences stated “Science is a way of knowing about the natural world. It is limited to explaining the natural world through natural causes. Science can say nothing about the supernatural.”

Studies across the world has shown people believe that the soul that is immaterial i.e it can exist without the corporeal frame, the core of our psyche, and immortal as it has the pulse of consciousness.

Time and again people have reported feeling “guided” by the soul of their deceased loved ones about things that can only be comprehended with Greater Knowledge. If you try to define this with the empirical laws, then you’d be unable to decipher the deeper meaning.

This dichotomy is eternal and cannot reach a conclusion simply because both sides have ample evidence.
