Re: Theos-World Universal Pattern?

Dear Adelasie,
As a scientist and a theosophist I would like to believe that I recognise the limitations of science in regards to the spiritual world. When speaking of ideas or theories I have I always made sure that I say: "this is only applicable to the physical world on the physical plane. Conditions and variables may be different elsewhere". The looks on my colleagues' faces is laughable to say the least. Invariably they would reply: "there's an elsewhere?"

Modern science is full of brilliant minds and daring extrapolations, 
but so far as I am aware, except in some remote areas, scientists 
have not accepted the reality of the spiritual world, that which 
transcends the physical, as a subject of study. Until they do, it 
seems to me that what we call science is primarily speculation, a 
result of looking at a part of the whole picture and forming 
theories about the supposed whole based upon that fragment. 

I would be delighted to discover that I am mistaken.
