Observation: Science and Spirituality begin to merge

Ahh the time has been long waited for humanity. We are FINALLY walking into a time when Science and Spirituality are colliding in a big way. A recent controversy over the Dali Lama's scientific research into the mind is pushing the buttons of "Traditional Scientists"
- "As the public face of neuroscience, we have a responsibility to at least see that research is replicated before it is promoted and highlighted," said Dr. Nancy Hayes, a neurobiologist at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Jersey who objects to the Dalai Lama's speaking. "If we don't do that, we may as well be the Flat Earth Society."

Then perhaps it is time to see the research replicated. I have some projecting to do on this, it would be a great ride to manifest some replicated meditation studies.

An intersting note to add to my knowledge is the production of gamma rays in meditation.

Nice to run into a spiritual blog, especially since you also seem to enjoy dreams. Dreams are a big component of my life.

It's a pleasure to meet you. I'll be stopping back for more!

This was the same issue I had with Science of Mind. My first question is - where's the data? They're called a Science but they have never run large (or small) scale experiments.

One of the things about science is that when it's fully understood, it can be boiled down to mathematical relationships. Hydrogen and Oxygen plus a spark ALWAYS results in 2 hydrogen molecules interacting with 1 oxygen molecule.

What's needed is a spiritual science which conducts a set of spiritual experiments showing that prayer, or meditation, or positive imaging, or whatever ALWAYS generates certain results.

When this happens we'll not only know that the mind and the spirit are awesome tools, but we can then start to understand how to continually improve our use of these tools.

Why hello ms Stacey- I would be interested in your analysis on a dream or two of mine. They are posted here and there :-) And mr or ms anonomous, I would be in support of a science that does the sorts of things you are speaking about. I do believe that the field of psychology will set the stage for what you speak of. Consciousness is already of topic of phychology. Longitudinal studies would be good as well
