MATERIAL SCIENCE ENHANCES THE EGO-LIFE
Science as it is understood today deals with energy and matter. This material science is in the domain of the mind. There is also spiritual science which deals with the beyond-mind state. Material science and spiritual science both yield proofs and demonstrations material science brings results through intellect, spiritual science through love. With love is experienced fully the source of the spiritual science, i.e. God the Infinite is realised and then all else is found to be just illusionary phenomenon.
Spiritual science being based on love alone and being beyond the systematic mental understanding is full of ups and downs and contradictions and vagaries which love alone can face and overcome, because material science enhances the ego-life, whereas spiritual science annihilates ego.
