DO SCIENCE & MYSTICISM COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER?

MYSTICISM IS THE MOTHER OF ALL SCIENCES.

An average grade mystic, even a mystic in contact with any of the adverse vital beings, can reveal everything that is to be known about matter and its processes and besides he has the power of manipulating all the so-called ineluctable natural laws.

Advanced mystics go far beyond....

LOL.
So, you cannot answer a single question which shows Judaism in a very poor light. Expected.
Killing one's opponents, sacrificing animals, body mutilations, enslaving weaker people, raping women, sectarianism, stoning to death heretics/disobedient sons, bashing babies to death on rocks, abusing and other such evils are not even religion and form no part of spirituality.
rabbee: questions! nah ain't going to wear, your loaded suicide vests. to even attempt to answer, and errant question. is to give validity, to the error.

Papa dear,
Those questions are of a mystical kind and can be correctly answered only by those with sufficient mystical experiences.
I put those elementary questions to you as I just wanted to know how deeply spiritual you are and what the depth of your tall claims about your spiritual practices really are.
Anyway, I wasn't expecting a single correct answer from you.
Why, even Avram, Daniel, Elijah, Moshe or Yeshu wouldn't be capable of answering most of these questions.
Those were very basic questions to test one's spiritual knowledge based on mystical experiences.
Relax.

LIMITATIONS OF SCIENCE:

1) Science can only test theories based on gross matter and that too in a crude inferential manner.

2) Where sentience, order, purpose, will and the fundamental question of origins of matter and sentience are concerned, science is clueless and as irrational as creationists.

IGNORANCE OF SCIENCE:

1) If we're forced to account for the existence of life forms by postulating initial conditions in which life forms already existed, then we could hardly say that our natural laws have explained the phenomenon of life. The theory of evolution avoids this by positing a natural mechanism whereby life could arise from a chaotic cloud of gas or a "primordial soup". In this way, the required initial condition is rendered as simple as possible, and all significant phenomena are attributed to the operation of the laws themselves.

2) Unless, the principle of life exists in the involved form in matter, it's absurd to assume that simple push and pull forces of insentient matter alone could organize a chaotic, seething mass of atomic particles into a system of life forms capable of exhibiting so many remarkable qualities and activities that far exceeds the scope and operations of gross matter taken independently.

3) Another questionable feature of the modern scientific view is that of "chance", which enters the theory of quantum mechanics as a kind of repeated initial condition in the so-called "reduction of the wave packet". The role of chance is illogical to say the least with the basic point being that chance enters modern physical theory as an arbitrary yet unavoidable correction factor that modifies the behavior of the system under the natural laws. It is thus another aspect in which the mathematical formulations of natural laws fail to completely specify the phenomena of nature.

4) These drawbacks of the modern scientific view suggest the existence of natural laws of a higher order. Such higher laws would serve to provide the missing information needed to account for the origin of life in matter, and would also serve to fill in the missing causal determination represented by "chance" in modern physics.

5) By higher order laws is meant one of the following sets of progressively stronger properties:

a) The laws cannot be reduced to the known laws of physics and chemistry.

b) These higher order laws cannot be expressed mathematically at all, and relate to entities not amenable to numerical description.

CONCLUSION:

The simple push and pull laws of modern physics and chemistry are certainly inadequate to account for the phenomenon of life, and the dilemmas of quantum theory suggest that they are not even adequate to account for the gross physical phenomena studied in physics.

QUESTION:

On the human level there are so many subtle traits of personality - for example: compassion, stability, honesty, humility, discrimination, tolerance, intention, responsibility, cleanliness, love, self-control and so on.

Is there any molecular operation or any multidimensional quantum mechanical equation that can describe these wonderful phenomena of life?

RIDDLES & INADEQUACY OF MOLECULAR PULLS & PUSHES:

1) Sometimes in human experience, mental events happen suddenly and without apparent antecedents. Fine poetry comes from a poet's intuitive thought; the solution to a difficult mathematical puzzle is revealed in a mental flash; an intrinsic chemical structure is picturized intuitively in the mind of a chemist; and a whole symphony is inspired in the mind of a composer.

2) Are we to suppose that these phenomena are nothing but the products of chance and simple pushes and pulls?

3) In, say, Mozart, we see a unique ability not present in any members of his family (Mozart's father was an ordinary musician). If a biochemical machine were present in Mozart's brain that could generate symphonies effortlessly, where did this machine come from? If a human being were to design such a machine, he would certainly have to adjust many delicately inter-related variables, and this would require great intelligence and perseverance.

4) Are we to suppose, then, that a random mutation of a gene or a chance combination of genetic alleles was able to produce such a machine? We should note that the chance that a pattern will form randomly goes down exponentially with the number of variables entering into the pattern.

5) Or are we to suppose that by Coulomb's law and the spin-orbit interactions, such a machine will just naturally pull itself together, given time?

BOTTOM LINE:

If humanity is merely a product of insentient molecular pushes and pulls, there is no reason why people should be concerned about the moral and ethical values of life. But, every sensible person knows that there is value in life. Life per se is full of meaning and full of purpose.

TNA - THREOSE NUCLEIC ACID - WORLD?

"TNA suffers from the chirality quandary associated with all sugar-based nucleic acid backbones. Although the presence of a 4-carbon sugar in TNA reduces this problem to 2 sugars and 4 stereo-isomers, it remains a formidable challenge to demonstrate how oligonucleotides composed of only L-threose could be preferentially synthesized under pre-biotic conditions...the selection of chiral sugar component of TNA would have required some sort of selection process to be in operation."

CONCLUSION:

Thus it is clear that all these silly reductionistic approaches to understand and explain life are unable to convince serious thinkers and truth-lovers. They seem to always lead to different dead ends. Life is, therefore, beyond matter.

ABIOGENESIS: CHEMICAL CHICKEN & EGG ENIGMA WRAPPED IN A MYSTERY & A PARADOX:

Genetic information flows from DNA, in the nucleus of each cell, to RNA, which carries the information out of the nucleus into the body of the cell and uses the instructions encoded in it to produce proteins (which act as enzymes and also provide the structural framework of cells). However, the duplication of DNA requires numerous enzymes that catalyze those reactions. And enzymes are proteins themselves - the end product of the information coded in DNA. In other words, proteins are required for DNA synthesis and DNA is required for protein synthesis.

QUESTION: How could the first living cell with DNA-based molecular biology have originated by spontaneous chemical processes on the pre-biotic earth? This is the chicken and egg problem of life's origin from chemicals - which came first: DNA or protein molecules?
