Re: Theos-World re Leonardo's "Synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy"

Leonardo wrote, in part: <<That synthesis is what the Secret Doctrine is all about... Since the "science" spoken of, in its "synthesis of science, religion and philosophy," is a merger of metaphysical science with physical science -- which, incidentally, since Einstein made that merger a living reality (and the new M-theory takes it even deeper by unifying his mutually incompatible relativity and quantum theories) -- the old "mystical" (even up to AAB who was stuck in it) aspects of theosophy no longer exist. Vide, Leon Maurer's ABC theory -- that pulls all those scientific theories together and links them to what was the "ancient
metaphysical mysteries" -- which have now been turned into a simple and understandable metaphysical/physical scientific philosophy (that can be intuitively "visualized," if not explained in words) >>

"Intuitively 'visualized'" might be one thing, in whatever context, but I was referring to "mystical" in terms of "that which can only be experienced but cannot be described." To my way of speculating, "intuitive visualization" doesn't sound like the same thing, in terms of how those words might be generally interpreted, as "direct experiencing" re mystical/occult/esoteric. In terms of modeling (if Theosophy is seen as a form of modeling of r/Reality/t/Truth) such "intuitive visualization" might be "understandable," in whatever sense/context, but I've been under the impression that before one can have certain "direct experiences," one would have to somehow transcend all forms of modeling. Of course if one thinks that one's modeling is good for that kind of transcending (and that might be why some of us might have an interest in the likes of Theosophy and ABC's ...) ... what can I say ... Still, at the end of the day ... ^:-/ ...

<<He's doing well... Speculating on the pure scientific aspects of theosophy...
But sometimes leaves the religious, yogic, or mystical occult stuff for me to rave about. :-) >>

Oh, okay ... ^:-/ ...
