Contemporary physics, chemistry and biology, seen through the simplifying lens of complexity theory (it sounds complex, but is actually simple) shows us that the non-dual realm is in complementarity with all of duality, that the presence/absence of boundaries, of separation, is dependent on perspective. "Wisdom" is seeing the world without delusion; science is one means to washing delusion from one's mind. In doing so, the inherent compassionate nature of the universe and of every being within and of that universe, therefore, as well, is revealed.
