Science and the Spiritual

I was just on Tricycle’s blog (I’m seriously addicted) reading about a new film that premiered in New York  which focuses on the search for a monk’s reincarnated master. The film is called Unmistaken Child and it sounds very interesting – that is how they find the Dalai Lama after all. One of the users directed me to this article from a Canadian newspaper about the meshing of spirituality and science! Here was my favorite quote from the article – it is from Dr. Jim Tucker, who is a psychiatrist and researcher at the University of Virginia:

“Whether that exactly means what people think of as reincarnation — as sort of a soul moving from one life to another — that’s hard to say… [But] there is a lot of reason to think that consciousness is sort of an independent force in the universe, and as such it may well exist separate from the physical brain, at least at times. This would be an example of that.”

    I am as equally fascinated by physics and astronomy as I am psychics and astrology. There is a phenomenon known as dark energy, which is said to make up over half (like 65%) of the universe. It is impossible to observe by scientific means, but it has a definite effect on everything.
    The more I learn about physics, astronomy, psychics and astrology, the more I believe they are absolutely connected. Quantum physics is especially adept at explaining it, as Josepha said. I just wish I could understand it a little better!
    Josepha~thanks for the book recommendation! :)

    I agree the religion thing is coming to a real shifting point in history, many of people are realizing that all of the stuff that follows religion like the guilt, self doubt, submissiveness that accompanies religion, as well as the theory of fearing god is just a little off base, the whole spirituality movement, trusting oneself having the ability to receive answers and being able to trust ones intuition is really becoming more and more prominent, it’s part of the whole new shift that is occurring, and it is very real!!!!
    I just read a fantastic book on the Hopi Indians, I study the Native ways I come from a long line of Osage and Cherokee so this is my belief but the Hopi believes that there is a strong connection between Egyptian Pyramids and the Native Americans why they are here and placed in certain areas the purpose of them and how it will play a part in the earth changes that is coming in relation to 2012 Interesting read, The Truth by Thomas Mills.

    Totally agreed Psychic Matt! I was telling Phillip about a book I read called 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl which basically is the same premise you just stated. Its a fascinating read. Also, as per Psychic Joyce’s recommendation, I just started reading Many Lives Many Masters. I’m loving the psychic involvement on this blog. I’ve always had an interest in the metaphysical so I’m loving this exchange of info. Thanks!

    Hi Josepha,
    You said it very well…..The soul has it’s own unique memory AND personality……It doesn’t seem to matter what type of body the soul inhabits as it moves thru various incarnations……the personality of the soul seems to stay intact .
    Example : the soul retains certain traits such as a particular sense of humor, a love for art or music,which carries forth from one incarnation to the next.

    There is a lot to be said about this subject.
    The first thing I would say is that there is a web of energy that connects all living and non-living things. It connects all there is. Our old religions that believe in the spirit, speak of this field where we are all connected to all there is. Quantum science demonstrates that such a field exists, thus connecting science and and spirituality.
