    Again I wondered what part of the forum to post to ....

    Hope you're all well.

    Here's a little something I just found on an interesting website.

    Reality is ambiguous

    The point where most people go wrong is thinking there is only one way of gaining truth, one perspective that fits on every bit of data. But describing a painting in terms of its chemical composition can be just as truthful as describing the same information, the painting, from an artistic point of view. Since they both talk a different language, they can never make a claim about what the other is saying. You can’t falsify an inner experience with scientific evidence, nor can you falsify scientific evidence with inner experience.

    Consequently most new age people talk in scientific language without a scientific filter, and thus their filters let too much through. In that case it’s impossible to distinguish what is valid and what is not. On the other hand, some have their filters too tight. Like the stereotypical atheists who can be way too skeptical of inner experience, even though their own inner experience taught them this skeptical attitude. They fail to see there is no scientific evidence that all truthful perspectives should have scientific evidence (it can’t justify itself according to its own terms).
