We live, as we dream alone................

Between the idea And the reality
Between the motionAnd the act
Falls the shadow
Between the conceptionAnd the creation
Between the emotionAnd the response
Falls the Shadow
Between the desireAnd the spasm
Between the potency and the existence
Between the essence And the descent`````
Falls the Shadow

Union and separation: our destiny is pre-ordained Shortly after conception, the embryo forms. Life begins with the five elements and the intricate body parts and organs are formed. Then infused with the soul, the vulnerable life is nourished and protected from the harmful elements all the while the unborn meditates. In the heat of the womb, life thrives and upside down indeed (the final position of the fetus in the last few weeks of labor and delivery). In the womb the creation survives by meditating upon the creators name, with every breath. Finally one is born and eventually forgets ones origin and becomes engrossed with the material world. After leaving the womb, one interacts and attaches with the conscious world and forgets God. Growing up is certainly not easy, especially when reincarnation hovers just around the corner unless one meditates upon the name of the primal lord.

Dogmas--religious, political, scientific--arise out of erroneous belief that thought can encapsulate reality or truth. Dogmas are collective conceptual prisons. And the strange thing is that people love their prison cells because they give them a sense of security and a false sense of "I know." Science is the process of trying to understand the nature of reality. And it's a fundamental of science that we believe reality exists, instead of having it be a human construct or all a matter of relative point of view. There isn't another side of the story in science. There are the right and wrong answers, and you do a better or worse job of understanding that reality, but we do believe reality is there. That's fundamental to what we're doing.
