Blinded By Science? By Dean A. Banks, D.d.

Do objects and energies exist beyond our ability to observe and perceive? Is science the only way to obtain knowledge? Or is imagination more important than knowledge?

Are you blinded by science? Science is NOT the final word on establishing the authenticity of anything because it relies on observations of the reflections in the perceived dualistic reality. When you are in the soup and your every action affects the color of the soup, your viewpoint is tainted by your ability to observe what is available to the senses. Only when you get out of the soup can your observations not be tainted by your presence in the soup. That's why science is not the 'be all and end all' of understanding existence. It is 'a' way of

looking at things and not 'the' way.

Your senses are limited. They only pick up ranges of frequencies which are the rate of vibrations of objects and energy. If something exists ‘beyond’ your ability to observe and subsequently perceive, then does it still exist? Of course it does! It’s just that YOU have not been able to observe it! This is why science has discovered the fact that the results of certain experiments are ‘altered’ by the observer.

I 'believe' what science reveals to our consciousness; however I also know that what it reveals is based on the limited ranges of the senses and not on what our inner consciousness 'knows'. Any system that is solely based on limited and restrained observations can only yield a 'partial' view of reality and not one that


incorporates 'all' of our experience.

Regardless of what truly exists, an ‘art’ like Astrology, when practiced combining empirical and rational observations, shows only 'tendencies' in a person. That's why, to me, the only practical form of Astrology is an art form of symbology and NOT a scientific observatory analysis.

Science, which is based on hypothetico-deductive model of reasoning, is based on an empirically observed method of fact gathering and a rationalistic logical derivative of consciousness evaluation. Since any form of consciousness that is involved in the determination of conclusions has an effect on what it is that it is concluding, reveals that it is only ‘a’ method of knowledge and NOT ‘the’ only method of gaining knowledge.

Imagination affords us the ability to see ‘beyond’ what our senses reveal. It affords us an experience by which we can ‘speculate’ how things are and not just relying on what we observe they are. As Einstein once said, “I'm enough of an artist to draw freely on my imagination, which I think is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." ~Dean A.
