Science and Mysticism

A good friend and I once had a lengthy discussion about the metaphysics of miracles. We agreed that they fit within a scientific conception of reality by simply being extremely improbable events (at least, at first), often of a good or even healing nature.

As for consciousness and reality, it is well-known that empirical science has difficulties with the former (and, relatedly in my framework, with half of the latter). I would argue that mysticism correspondingly does not handle materiality very well…its accounts often lapse too far into subjectivism, i.e. that perception alone is sufficient cause for reality’s entire existence.

    Metaphysics is like searching for dark matter or dark energy or black holes. We cannot empirically find these things, but instead we just look for the measurable impact they make upon the world.

      But we do the the universe is only composed of 23% particulate matter dark still needs to be discovered but in fact is not anything spectacular in comparison of the theory of gravity of newton.Both matter and energy dark has been through and is known to comprise 90% of the universe.All that is known that the two exist, but the speculation is that no one knows who you are, and you can only talk about what one can know.

    All the “organic matter” or material world arise from inorganic matter the theory is called (abiogenesis) It is known that between approximately 4400 million years ago, according the water vapor was found for the first time the proper conditions to condense
    Its important to keep in mind that abiogenesis assumes the scientific explanation of what the religion referred to as divine or supernatural. In other words: the science, abiogenesis, look for the natural principle that has led to the emergence of life, whereas religion falsely attributes the creation to the action of one or more gods.Already in Ancient Greece there were thinkers who, in some way, spoke of abiogenesis. With the advance of scientific development (Aristotle was the creator of science and empirical science so duh), began to be indications of how it could have developed this process through studies performed complex in rocks, meteorites and fossils.Broadly speaking, abiogenesis argues that a natural process was allowed to, molecules from abiotic, the development of simple organic molecules. These molecules, in turn, resulted in protobiontes, species of protocells that led to the emergence of prokaryotic cells.
    The studies In the laboratory conducted chemical assays, and also observed certain processes astroquímics (the astroquímic .-study the composition of the material diffuse and the stars in the interstellar space) and geochemical (geochemistry is the study of the dynamics and the composition of the chemical elements in terrestrial) that produce the constituents of the life, according to current notions of the conditions of the natural environment that the Earth had done so many thousands of millions of years.Among the hypotheses most relevant of abiogenesis is the theory of the world of iron-sulfur (proven fact).
    In this case, it is argued that meteorites that fell on our planet brought the first organic molecules.
    Metaphysical ideas just as substance dualism are just woo-woo non-sense that have debunked long ago like the methapsychis of the flat earth theory.

    Energy can be measure with science is the concept that is more important of it. The energy is th enrgy and matter than form the universe , the matter is the substance and the energy is abstract but we can notice when we transfiere and transform like when the energy comes from electromagnetic waves and the energy heat is captured in the plants , it is the food that we eat, and we receive through the digestion so that it can be measured in energy chemistry that turns into combination with other elements such as gasoline and fire or in an machine that uses it is transform to electric energy.
    one of the forms of energy that can transform the energy potential is energy of movement , in science and physics we also call kinetic energy<. .
    Metaphysics only deal into what we call flat earth theories that why is famous for…
