The fact that mainstream science marries dogmas with what is supposed to be an open-minded pursuit of the truth is tying today’s scientists into knots. Groundbreaking research is being hampered; inventions that make no sense are being touted; and, with it all, a vast new source of expert help is being rejected out of hand. The result is that twenty-first-century science is so altogether stymied that it is blundering into extremes of folly as it hurries up its own blind alleys. The popular term for things that once were great but now are sliding toward absurdity comes from an episode of the TV series “Happy Days,” where the Fonz jumps a shark on water skis. If modern science were as irrelevant as TV fiction, then its shark-jumping would be no problem at all! But as it is, the university departments’ and journals’ ongoing insistence that all scientific inquiry must be material impoverishes us all.
Here are examples of just three areas where those scientific elites are impairing what they should be enabling. These aren’t the only problems being caused for science by its gatekeepers’ insistence on materialism, but they are the ones that come first to mind:
Absurd inventions that are wastes of time and money are being touted as advances. As billionaires age, they begin to worry about their own mortality, and happily there are always scientists cheerfully willing to waste their money. The current vogue is for trying to find ways to keep brains going after bodily death, and to pair those bits of mortal meat with machinery that will mimic an immortal body. I am linking to this article primarily for its creepy illustration, which sums up the absurdity of it all. And this isn’t even the worst bit of nonsense! A Russian magnate plans to “upload his personality” to a robot in order to achieve immortality. No meat-brain now to keep alive, true, but he has another serious problem. If the scientific theory that his brain generates his consciousness turns out to be right, then after his body dies there will be no personality anywhere to be uploaded, will there? And if his personality can live without his brain, then wouldn’t it be better for him to go to the actual glorious afterlife, and not try to live on trapped forever in some infernal earthly machine?
Research scientists are needlessly stymied. If the earnest folks who are studying dark matter had any inkling of what afterlife researchers have learned about the greater reality, then they might investigate more effective ways to integrate dark matter with the material universe. But instead, these folks are reduced to assuming that in a reality of breathtaking efficiency, fully twenty-seven percent of the universe – a mass five times that of traditional matter – is just a garbage of particles.
Potential collaborators are being ignored. There was a time when communication with people we used to think were dead was a hit-or-miss game using mediums whose honesty might be questionable. That day is past. And furthermore, in this new century, actively assisting people on earth is a first priority of many dead scientists. These folks were experts when they were in bodies, and now they know even a whole lot more because from their laboratories in the astral levels their ability to access knowledge is immensely greater. Once mainstream science stops being a belief-system and returns to being an open-minded pursuit of the truth, these dead collaborators are going to be able to help our knowledge to advance by light-years!
The examples given here would be funny if they were not so pathetic. For so long as scientific gatekeepers continue to enforce a false and foolish dogma, well-meaning professional scientists will waste what should be their important careers.
A lot of the scientific work that has been done over the past century is grounded in incomplete information, so eventually it must all be redone. We continue to pay a heavy price for the fact that, a hundred years ago, scientific gatekeepers were so worried about unexpectedly finding God that they stepped over what should have been an iron line and turned science into just another religion.
