It is not just semantics

Words matter in Spiritual Philosophy

Basis of existence is Consciousness; everything was created out of Consciousness.

Materialists say that this is just semantics. Now replace the word “Consciousness” with “matter”

Basis of existence is matter; everything was created out of matter.

Does it sound right to you? Even the hard core materialists realized in time that the second statement was completely wrong. Einstein proved that matter is really energy in its essence. Materialists replaced the word “matter” with “energy.”

Basis of existence is energy; everything was created out of energy.

Does it sound right to you? First of all, we do not know the ontological reality of energy. Besides, quantum physics and other advances in particle theory showed that reality is much more subtle. Energy exhibits a wave/particle duality. Materialists then replaced the word “energy” with “wave and vibration.” The “wave and vibration” refers to the quantum mechanical nature. The “wave and vibration” also refers to the fundamental strings postulated in some physics theories.

Basis of existence is wave and vibration; everything was created out of wave and vibration.

Does it sound right to you? Where is life in this paradigm? Where is consciousness in this paradigm? Where is love in this paradigm?

One could interpret “wave and vibration” as primordial life because the basic characteristic of life is pulsation. The heart beat or pulsation starts very early in the formation of visible life. So, this is progress but the consciousness is still missing, love is still missing.

Most recently, some physicists replaced “wave and vibration” with the word “information.”

Basis of existence is information; everything was created out of information.

This is progress too. We can continue like this and refine our paradigm and come closer to truth. I want to convince you that ultimately you will reach the conclusion that: Basis of existence is Consciousness; everything was created out of Consciousness.

Don’t forget Consciousness=Love, we could have expressed the truth by saying

Basis of existence is Divine Love; everything was created out of Divine Love.
