MATTER AND MIND: BOTH MYSTERIOUS
Life and consciousness are neither matter nor an outcome of the revolution of matter. Matter and spirit are two separate things, but science is unaware of thier structure and nature. Spirit is invisible and is beyond any experiment in laboratory, yet at the same time, it is perceptible and undeniable. Even the matter, in its final analysis, is nothing but a mysterious collection of a few electric particles and waves. Still, the question of electricity, its nature, reality, and the nature of its posiive and negative charges clearly fall into a domain that is beyond human comprehension. No scientist in the world could reveal it. Let alone consciousness, even matter is incomprehensionible in its detail.
Since consciousness and life are beyond human comprehension and cannot be subjected to experimentation in laboratory, and seeing, thinking, comprehending, planning, and action necessarily emanate from life and consciousness, they all lead us to accept the fact that there exists a metaphysical power which plans, designs, thinks, and effects things and events to happen. It also flows from it that he is equipped with great power and endowed with magnificent qualities that go into shaping of this great universe with all its diverse manifestations.
Thus, the creation of this universe, its purposefulness, and its flawless operation is not possible without a creator of immense potential. However, some ninteenth century scientists were so impressed with certain geological and celestial discoveries that they fell back upon the archaic physical concepts and completly ignored the importance of life and consciousness among the living beings. They went to the extent of likening man to a mechanical object absolutely devoid of any freedom of choice in action. All of his actions were attributed to the celestial explosion billions of years ago, modern psychologists, particularly the ones dealing with behavioural sciences in the United States, began to trot out mechanical interpretations of the human psychology. This characterisation dismisses every human action as natural and beyond the pale of accountablity. Even more perversely, all traditional notions of ethics were discarded as absurd, and man was considered totally a slave of his whims and fancies. It is why the criminals are now prescribed psychological treatments rather than punishment.
