The Problem: Understanding Life
Our current sciences study and measure the world of objects and forces but aren’t able to relate the resulting picture to the person who is experiencing it. In fact the disconnections between the person doing science and the methods of contemporary sciences have become so great that many of those doing science even doubt the reality of consciousness itself! Or if they grant some reality to consciousness they consider it to be an accidental or secondary result of cellular activity.
Our contemporary sciences even consider life itself to be based on non-living particle-wave effects called sub-atomic particles. Physicists believe that somehow these non-living particles become living when seen at the level of the most basic cells. Again, under this view the sciences consider life itself to be merely a new arrangement of non-living elements.
Such “scientific” results contradict our most basic human experiences so fundamentally that we have to seek for new answers that are true to our direct experience. We call this process intuitive scientific thinking because we want to think scientifically both about what we do as well as what goes on in the world. As a method of inquiry it focuses on sticking to direct observations rather than abstract theories.
