Religion, Art and Science – Why is the branch of the same tree?

2019-04-09 Arts No comment

All human creation can be broadly divided into three categories, namely science, religion and art. Originally, art refers to any human skill or mastery. However, in the romantic period, art and the other two main branches of human creation are the separation of science and religion. Art, science and religion are now treated as different professions and have nothing in common.

Albert Einstein said: "All religions, art and science are branches of the same tree." But we don't know why? After all, religion is based on beliefs that do not require evidence. Science is based on facts that must be proven by evidence. Art is related to human emotions. It does not require faith or evidence, because we know that it is a fiction, and it is not an object purely from the imagination of human thinking.

Art: the imagination that requires emotional evidence

Defining art is extremely difficult. Fortunately, art is a work of human imagination and creativity without any restraints or tests. The only reason to think of a particular piece of music as art is that it appeals to the audience. The test of a good painting is the appreciation of the audience. There is no logic, reason or evidence to say that art is as good as its only standard, and it should be appreciated.

Although both science and religion claim to be representatives of facts and reality, art does not mean that it is merely fictitious. In fact, some forms of art, such as movies and novels, clearly show that these are works of the novel, and any similarities with facts or reality are purely accidental. Literature, another form of art, is officially called a novel, because everything in a novel or story is fictitious and purely created from human imagination.

Therefore, one of the basic characteristics of art is that it is not a manifestation of fact or reality. However, a good movie or a story will make you cry, increase your heartbeat, make you laugh and make you forget that it is not a reality. The effect of good art is no different from the effect of reality.

The most interesting thing about art is that it affects your emotions without affecting your thoughts. When you read the thriller "Da Vinci Code", your thoughts are very clear that everything in the novel is fictitious, but you can't control the emotions you appear in the reader, as if you are reading a real life. Story In a typical novel, all characters and situations are created by the author's imagination, but they look real. Therefore, the novel is not any imaginary work, but the facts and reality make the novel a reality.

It can be compared to a beautiful girl's paintings. Girls may be fictitious, but the characteristics of girls are very similar to real girls. The color of the painter is also true, which may be completely different from the impression that a real girl gives a real girl, which was woven from the imagination of the audience. The artist created the subject of reality, but the soul of reality comes from the imagination of the audience, and he pours his soul into art. Therefore, when a novel is read by a million people, everyone will imagine characters and situations from his own imagination.

Therefore, the artist's imagination creates art and attracts the emotions of others. The true test of art is not the test of truth [how close it is to truth], but how much it looks like truth. The test of art is not its evidence or evidence, but how the reader views the truth in the novel. Communicating truth with imaginative characters and situations is an art that only artists can understand. If art can't influence people's inner feelings, then it can't be said to be a good art.

Science: the imagination of material evidence

Science is the knowledge created by the imagination [hypothesis] of human thinking, but it can be confirmed by material facts and evidence. Scientists usually observe a phenomenon, assuming an explanation of the phenomenon, predicting the logical result of the guess, testing the prediction, and checking for any errors. Therefore, the origin of science is the assumption made by scientists after making observations. The critical test of science is its consistency with material evidence.

The assumption is nothing but the imagination of scientists. Therefore, every scientific theory like art stems from the imagination of human thought. However, science is related to matter, and its truth must be tested by physical evidence. For example, if E = mc2 cannot be verified experimentally, scientists will abandon Einstein's theory of relativity, regardless of the rationality of the argument or theory.

Religion: the imagination that requires social evidence

Religion usually refers to a series of organized beliefs and beliefs about the spiritual or metaphysical world. The concept of religion may or may not have the concept of God. However, all religions share some common beliefs and rituals, and their followers must follow these beliefs and rituals.

Religion is a peculiar combination of science and art. Religious followers are absolutely certain of the authenticity of their scriptures, while others often find it to be a fictional work. However, unlike art, artists always tell people that art is the creation of their imagination. The prophets or founders of religion often call it the truth of the gospel. They are obtained directly from God.

Therefore, religions such as art and science also seem to stem from human imagination. Often, its creators are called prophets or sons of God who gain knowledge directly from God or the Spirit. For example, the Bible and the Qur'an are considered to be God's revelations to the prophets and are considered to be the Word of God. It is believed that the Vatican is the words of Lord Krishna. However, some religions such as Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism are believed to originate from mortals, although their religious believers often try to promote their status to divinity by calling the Mahavir Jain and the Buddha not ordinary people. Level but incarnation or the embodiment of God, build their statues like God.

Many branches of a tree

It is clear that all sources of art, science and religion are the imagination of human thought. However, human imagination is given different names, such as fiction, hypothesis or revelation, depending on creation. When Newton saw the apple falling from the tree, he imagined gravity attracting the gravitational pull of the apple toward the earth. Galileo formed the heliocentric theory of the solar system based on his imagination, and the earth revolves around the sun. This is an extraordinary imagination beyond imagination. He has no special meaning to imagine how the big earth revolves around a tiny [looks] sun. Einstein imagines that all movements of the planet are only relative, or that light is based on particles and waves of his imagination.

However, no one knows why such an imagination would appear in the minds of those selected. Is God's desire to express the truth through these people? Or do humans want to discover the truth that leads to this imagination? The first hypothesis is the assumption provided by believers or religious figures. However, if we assume the authenticity of the second hypothesis, then the problem still exists, why is this desire appearing in individuals who eventually reach such extraordinary imagination?

Mind, body and soul

Almost all religious and spiritual people believe in the existence of the body, mind, soul and spirit [or God]. However, science does not believe anything other than the body because it even considers the mind to be part of the body [the brain] and explains the thoughts of biochemicals. These concepts are explained in different religions. Gita [III 42] explains the relationship between body, mind, soul and spirit in the following terms.

The senses are better than the body. Above the senses is the mind, above the soul is the soul [individual wisdom], above the soul is the god [cosmic wisdom or spirit].

Based on this theory, we find that human thought has four levels of evolution. A person "sees" the world according to the "stage" of his evolution.

Body eyes: from

 The first level of evolution is the level of the body. At this level, we see the world from the naked eye of the body. This ability is common to all animals in the world because each animal has its own body. At this stage, seeing is believing.

The eyes of the soul: from

 In the next phase of evolution, we can see the world from the mind, using logic and reasoning. We believe that everything in the world can be explained by the mind. We not only saw what was in front of us, but also what we could not see with the naked eye. For example, if you see a car moving, you know it must have a driver who drives the car. This is a stage in which you see yourself believing.

The eyes of the soul: from

 When we see the limitations of logic in explaining the world, we can achieve the next level of evolution. Then we try to understand the world from our own perceptions and experiences. Smart people always believe that to understand the world, you must understand yourself. At this stage, one thinks "Ahem Brahmasm" [I am the universe]. As the Upanishad correctly stated thousands of years ago.

Just like the human body, so is the universe

Just like human thought, so is the idea of ​​the universe.

Just like the micro world, the same is true of the macro world.

S Radhakrshnan, one of India's greatest modern scientific philosophers, sums up the concept of the world with the following words

A philosophical attempt to determine the nature of reality can begin with thinking about the self or the object of thought. In India, interested…
