The Abyss is the darkness or the light that fills the endless dimensions of the unknown between scientists on one side of it, and mystics on the other.

To the scientists it is filled with blank darkness from which flickerings sometimes tantalisingly appear to appease their curiosity. To the mystics, the Abyss is filled with an absorbing  benign joy and fulfillment, awe and wonder that explains everything, everything known and unknown, then now and forever.

Some scientists refuse to even look at the Abyss. They say there is nothing to prove it. They use the human mind, brain and experiences to come to their conclusions.

Others scientists reveal their acknowedgement of the Abyss’s possible existence by denying it with experimentation to show that the Abyss is a product of human mind and brain. They refuse to go further, so denying their brains and minds the sustenance of the Abyss that created and sustains those brains and minds, those experiential devices.

Mystics have had all such human attachments dissolved. Roots deep in the Abyss entwine them, guard them guide them, feed and assuage them, remove the veils of their limited temporary human existence.

Some scientists see, feel, and come close to the edge of the Abyss but cannot give up their tenure. They remain unripened, ripening. Others persist, keep knocking, listening, energised by more than the mere curiosity at best that cripples their colleagues.

When all is eventually done to satisfaction, neither side will exist.

  1. I do believe that seeing into some of the deepest mysteries of the universe will involve acceptance of consciousness in all its diffuse ( throughout creation) and very dense (in brains) manifestations. Science is still clinging to the Enlightenment era concept of only physical things that can be measured are possible to examine thru their methods.

    It is true. So they will have to develop new methods! They will resist as forcefully as the Pope did Galileo’s ideas.
