Where Science and Spirituality Converge

Nonduality, “is the philosophical, spiritual, and scientific understanding of non-separation and fundamental intrinsic oneness.” Philosophers and sages have come to the realization over thousands of years that there is only one substance — and we are all part of it. Whether it’s called Awareness or Consciousness or even God, it is understood to be constant and unchangeable, this essence of all existence. 

  Then, there’s Science. This practical and pragmatic application of thought and beliefs are now arriving at the same conclusion: the Universe does indeed consist of a single substance, presumably created during the Big Bang, and all sense of being (Consciousness) arises from it. 

  If we are all individual expressions of a single entity, then is there a point where Science and Spirituality converge?
