The Science of Energy (The Language of Truth)
For many years, man has pondered his existence. Some of the questions we ask about the universe include “Who are we and why are we here?” and “What is the meaning of our existence?”. Scientists and religious leaders have tried to provide answers to the basis of our existence, but some questions remain unanswered despite all these years. Science and religion have been considered two different topics; however, there are intersections between the two. While there’s no evidence to support the existence of God, most people believe there is a higher power that humans can’t fathom. We have holy books that serve as guides to the universe and our actions, but there’s doubt about the credibility of these books.
The intersection of philosophy and science revolves around understanding the nature of reality. However, can what we perceive as reality be trusted? Our senses play a great role in the interpretation of reality, but they can be deceiving sometimes. Science and philosophers seek to understand the human mind. There are assumptions and limited knowledge, but none have been able to grasp a full understanding of the complex nature of the mind.
Philosophy aims to delve into the core of human existence. While contemporary science focuses on explaining physical phenomena and consciousness through physics, philosophy, especially metaphysics, seeks a holistic comprehension of reality. The author further talks about the exploration of light, revealing it as both a particle and a wave. The duality of light was a topic that fascinated me in school, so it was interesting to read about it again. He further raises the question of whether the mind is purely material and sparks various ideas, with historical shifts like Descartes’ Cartesian dualism highlighting the evolving relationship between science and metaphysics. This separation of scientific and ontological pursuits has significant consequences for our understanding of reality and consciousness.
The Science of Energy by Payman Sattari is fit for those with a scientific background, as it would be considered challenging to read by an average reader. Also, the arguments by the author would prove a great topic of discussion among philosophers. Philosophy is a broad subject, and it’s always interesting to see someone else portray their views with evidence to back them up and not try to impose them on the readers. The author aims to educate, not convince, you of his beliefs, which makes the book a good read. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in philosophy.
