David Spero speaks of our own unique paths to explore the edge between the known and the unknown.
Science does not provide a meaningful exploration of the edge between the known and the unknown, for science limits itself to quantifiable realities. The unknown for science eventually becomes the known, again and again, in a series of empirical discoveries, followed by literal articulations (conclusions), followed by more discoveries and more articulations, ad infinitum. Science thus displays an endless, indirect and piecemeal attempt at knowing. Classical Vedanta and Neo-Advaita presentations likewise cannot probe into the edge in consciousness, since they attempt to deny or transcend the known–not understand it. Nondual theorists tell us with great confidence that “the Self is everything.” This “Self,” however, turns out to be merely the Un-Manifested aspect of the Absolute–only one side of the edge between the known and unknown. Advaita Vedanta subsumes the known into the unknown, dissolving the edge between them. Disappointingly then neither science nor Advaita Vedanta can explore the mysterious edge. I wonder if it is possible to approach this subject from an entirely different angle. Could a human body-mind manifest a bridge to the unknown through its own subjective intensity and then share it with others? Neither scientific method nor non-dualistic spiritual theories can bring us to the edge of the known, but perhaps, as a direct taste, Non-Dual Recognition, Ecstatic Devotional Feeling and Activated Kundalini Shakti interacting simultaneously might function as an energetic bridge offering a thrilling sensation of entering the edge of consciousness.
