Another great reblog of mystical validation from zenothestoic.com:
Is it so strange that a deep interest in science should be combined with an equally deep desire for mysticism and transcendance?
I think not; the two can be seen as two sides of the same coin. Reality seen both from the intellect and from the senses. A yearning for transcendance. Some would say a desire to escape from the base reality. Which is all that is accessible to most of us in a “normal” state of mind.
