I think some sciences are. Physics is esoteric to me and so is mathematics. In simple layman terms I heard that our Universe is based on musical notes; and numbers. True or false I love that idea!
Psychological and spiritual development. Open your mind to a different way of thinking and your heart to a different way of being. Traditionally Science many times challenges Religious beliefs.. t however there are those that feel we are at one with the Universe , this theory appears to becoming more prevalent in todays' world..
thanks for asking tsmog...kj
Maybe before the invention of the printing press, science might have been esoteric. But in the modern world science is ubiquitous and understood on a fundamental level.
As your question is phrased the answer is NO. If you give it a context then the answer may change.
At Sydney University they teach esoteric Mathematics.
You know its good to learn from each other. I am here to not only join in on the conversation but to also get to know the writers and questionners. Do you want to be right or happy Brad?
Hi Tim Mitchell! How's it going?
You know, I had to look up the word 'esoteric,' real quick before I could take a crack at this question. The definition I got is: "intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest."
The answer is yes. It is very difficult for a non-scientist to have any kind of basic, working knowledge of any of the sciences. This is much more true for the sciences, than it is for the humanities.
I wish that were not so, believe me. I suspect science could be taught in a different way. Mathematics is a big part of it, of course; and a whole lot of people, myself included, are, frankly, intimidated by math.
Perhaps the school day and school year needs to be organized in a different way...
Science, in general, is very left-brained, quantitative, and analytical. Folks are not so oriented might have a hard time.
But anybody can read a history book, or Mark Twain, or even sociology, and things like that, which are more "art rather than science," are hardly quantitative. Knowledge can be more readily absorbed by someone working on her own. One can become a writer, perhaps even a painter, or musician on her own.
But one cannot, I think, become a scientist on her own.
And so on and so forth.

As we have Keralites and Bengali tantriks in India... are there any such equivalent occult science specialists, in the western countries? If yes, how effective are they?

After reading so much feedback on the global warming issue, I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this Large Hadron Collider thing going on in Switzerland. Apparently they are trying to make little black holes and the like. Must be important as they have so far spent billions of...
