  • Systematic exploration and unification of knowledge.
  • Systematic exploration of reality.
  • Systematic exploration of what is true.
  • Science passes through stages of searching for explanations of phenomena, exercising creatorship, discovering limitlessness, and realizing THE SUPREME.
  • Science passes through stages of studying the divisions within Mind, unifying what has apparently been divided, exploring the nature of oneness, and transcending the scaffolding of ideas that were required along the way.
  • Science is a path of enlightenment.
  • Earlier stages of science are focused on objective knowledge within a context of believed separation and finitude. Later stages of science are focused on subjective knowledge within a context of oneness and infinitude.
  • Profound science unifies empirical and revealed knowledge.
  • Profound science unifies physics and metaphysics.
  • Profound science is unified with spiritual investigation. Science and spirituality are ultimately one process of investigation.
  • Science ends when all assumptions, postulates, and beliefs have been systematically understood and transcended.
  • Science ends with the discovery of Supreme Limitlessness.
  • The final discovery of science is the reality of THE SUPREME.
  • The final discovery of science is the reality of YOU.


  • “Science and spirituality are two aspects of the same inquiry.”
  • “The progress of science can be measured by the systematic undoing of its own assumptions, postulates, and beliefs.”
  • “The greatest asset of science, until it is not, is its systematic approach. When objectivity is transcended, the greatest asset of science becomes a liability.”
