Is Science and Religion simply a case of chasing our own tails?
Similarities between Quantum physics and Eastern mystical philosophy
Science and religion are text books of our discoveries, perceptions and not the answers to life's questions. It is interesting and relevant that after centuries of scientific evolution, physics has come full circle to share a mystical view of reality previously dismissed for its lack of tangible evidence. We are integral to reality and to quantify it would be to understand the purpose of our very existence. Taking it that creation/annihilation is perpetual, non-distinguishable from each other and we are integral to this process how can we transcend this dimensional level?
We continually seek experimental evidence to quantify what should be treated as fact. Even religion is based on ancient historical accounts of individuals. Yet the reality lies within and around us. We seem to have an adversity to what we feel and sense in favour of scientific and religious teachings. We believe what we are taught rather than what we know.
Our original beliefs were based on our relationship with nature and the skies, which I feel is closer to our true reality than science or religion. Eastern philosophy, Tao in particular, has not strayed from its belief that we are simply part of a oneness, a continual energy flow. physics has discovered a similar phenomena as life's building block and are faced with the dilemma of its interpretation in Western weights, measure and language much like mystics sometimes refer to the reality as the unthinkable.

Are we simply going around in circles chasing our tails trying to find the meaning of life when we are simply an integral part of a reality where the boundaries we set ourselves have become the obstacles to our realisation?
