scientific discoveries canīt be made by using logic.
Edmond Halley would say anything disrespectful of religion, Newton
"I have studied these things -
you have not!"
Newton was one of the greatest scientists of all times, but he was also
a mystic. Today we can read that he was an alcemist, but then you
should be aware that esotericians have used this symbol (trying to make
gold) for mans development for ages, to get rid of ignorant
Another man who
used regular meditation was the inventor Thomas Alva Edison. As he sat
down to meditate he held one sphere in each hand, palms held upwards.
If he went down to a state that was too deep, he dropped his spheres
and woke up from the noise as they fell to the floor. After that he
could start all over again. Many of Edisons inventions were created
At a closer look
we can see that most of our great thinkers, musicians and artists also
were mystics. We can make a long list, and just from the 20:th century
we can name people like Einstein, Bohr, Planck, Heisenberg etc. Some of
them kept this side mostly private, while others, as Einstein, did some
attempts to show the importance of mysicism to the world. In this way
Einstein got regarded as a little excentric by ignorant materialists,
but they could "accept it" because his ideas in physics were so
Mozart once told how his music were created. He described how it came
to him when he was in a state of relaxed stillness. Suddenly it was
just there. Mozart could hear the beginning, the middle and the end at
the same time. He could hear all instruments. After that he only needed
to sit down and write all the notes. It is a fact that Mozart never
rewrote a single note. In a simular way Beethoven descibed how he could
get into a meditative state when he travelled in a coach, and how the
music then would start flowing into his mind.
technician Balzar von Platen, known as the inventor of the
refrigurator, claimed that he in 1914 were visited by "a spirit" who
described how he should construct a device that would take heat from
the cold and give to the warm, a kind of "perpetuum mobile". After the
meeting von Platen never fully could remember this device that
"violated the laws of nature", but parts of the ideas eventually became
The only thing
that is needed to give full understanding of all this is that we accept
the existence of "nonphysical levels". The obvious explanation then
becomes the only one. Our greatest minds had better contact with "other
levels of reality" then most of us do. They have, often fully
conciosly, tried to reach these levels by meditation, and get their
ideas. The thoughts and ideas did not form then, they were there
before, on higher levels of existence, but they were "transformed" by
the genius to our physical reality. Many great thinkers also have tried
hard to explain this contact in a simple way to their fellow humans,
and in so risking total humiliation.
philosopher Plato tried this in his time, when he described what he
called "the world of ideas" that according to Plato was "more real then
our reality". I still remember how I was tought in school that "Plato
had some cracy ideas" but that he was a genius otherwise.
Maybe we will
find that the difference between our greatest scientists, artists and
even religous prophets is in fact quite small. Most of them were
mystics or esoterics on some level, and with a good contact with "inner
planes" they were able to give a contribution to mankind.
