Method and Ritual

 

Both religion and science are forms of popular or conventional knowledge, except where each leads beyond its own presumptions into the esoteric and transcendental realms of Truth.

Religion makes profound use of the method of ritual, or the repetition of what has been previously found to be auspicious and revealing.

But science makes equally profound use of the ritual of method, which is also the repetition of what has previously been found to be auspicious and revealing.

The method of religion is to repeat prescribed external or internal rituals of action and attention, until there is a deep psychic encounter with the unknown.

The ritual of science is to repeat prescribed external or internal methods of action and attention, until there is a conscious mental encounter with the unknown.

Therefore, both religion and science pursue the experiential knowledge of the unknown.

Religious ritual is the science of the right hemisphere of the human brain (or the holistic faculty of intuition).

Scientific method is the religion of the left hemisphere of the human brain (or the analytical faculty of comprehension).

Both religion and science are motivated by the absence of perfect knowledge.

Both religion and science are founded upon the urge to transcend the present limitations of the human body-mind.

Religion cannot do what science is intended to do, because religion is not fundamentally oriented toward the mental analysis of the world of manifest phenomena.

Science cannot do what religion is intended to do, because science is not fundamentally oriented toward psychic unity with the world of manifest phenomena.

Therefore, a complete or truly human culture would be both religious and scientific in the highest and most universal sense of each discipline.

And the self-transcendence of Man is also beyond the conventional methods and rituals of both religion and science, even as both hemispheres of the brain must be transcended if the mind is to be transparent to the Radiant Reality in which the world of manifest phenomena is floating.
