Wholistic Science

This page is exactly the same as the page about “Science”. On the page “Science” I compare several kinds of science: Science, Pseudo Science and Wholistic Science. To be complete, to avoid confusion, I have to publish the same information here.

The world of science is not the way to new directions. Science is based on an outdated view, based on just rationalism (to keep it “clean”), only the materialistic, physical, view on research: what is not visible with the physical eyes, neither via the microscope, does not exist, it cannot be proved it is there. Science is therefore limited.

The world problems, terrorism, wars, climate change, are a result of  science

Climate change has human causes, and it started already from the beginning of the industrial era. Industry is related with technical knowledge, and that has been learned on schools. Universities belong to the educational system. Science is a product of Universities, lectured by scientists.

In this blog I also pay attention to education the film “Alphabet, Angst oder Liebe” is a documentary about schools, education in general, world wide. The product of the educational system is a sick mind, that has studied a lot, developed the ratio, but who never ever has been screened for his or her ethics. Ethics do not belong to science. One is free to study and to experiment.

Mankind is unaware, obviously, that also evil minds can learn science, and use it to create evil products. Evil is always hidden behind masks and the most of the humans cannot see the one behind the mask.

Science, education, needs to be revised, by making it a wholistic science, a wholistic education..

More Evidence of Scientism as Religion

More than a half century ago, famed writer C.S. Lewis warned about how science (a good thing) could be twisted in order to attack religion, undermine ethics, and limit human freedom. In this documentary “The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis and the Case Against Scientism,” leading scholars explore Lewis’s prophetic warnings about the abuse of science and how Lewis’s concerns are increasingly relevant for us today.

The Limitations of Science and the Medical Paradigm

Science has lifted us from the ignorance of the Dark Ages into the understandings we hold today. It has increased our standards of living, lengthened our life spans, and enriched our lives in every way. Music, the arts, our governments, our social customs, our religious beliefs, our educational institutions, our recreations, our modes of travel, our means of communicating, our working, our eating, our sleeping—all aspects of our culture have been transformed by the touch of technology. It is little wonder, then, that we have become conditioned to look to science for the solutions of all our problems and for the answers to life’s questions.

But science, powerful as it is, is a false god. Awed by the spectacular material advancements science has brought us, we have come to expect more of science than it is capable of delivering. Many individuals, not recognizing the limitations of science, stand in expectation of results that will never come. Science does not have all the solutions. It does not have all the answers. It never has and it never will.
The purpose of this article is to clearly present science for what it is—no more and no less. Many answers can be obtained by the scientific method, but there are many more that cannot. It is not my intent to destroy your faith in science. As a lifetime professional scientist myself, I am duly respectful of its potential. I am also aware of its limitations.
When it comes to consideration of life in its fullness, these limitations are very big. Therefore, while I don’t want to destroy your faith in science, I do want to disturb it and to encourage you to question its validity as an approach to living.
In order to clearly understand the limitations of science, one must first have a clear picture of what science is. Interestingly enough, there is a large fraction of scientists who do not have an accurate and complete picture of the boundaries of science.
This might sound hard to believe, but it is true. It is entirely possible to practice science to a high level of success in obtaining useful, valid results, while at the same time never being fully aware of its limits.
In an analogous way, it is entirely possible, if not common, for doctors to practice medicine without being aware of its limits. In fact, it is not at all uncommon for people to confuse medicine with science. And neither is it unusual for doctors to confuse science with technology.
The practice of medicine, while it may be partially described as “applied technology,” is not a science.
While medicine bases some of its practices on scientifically derived data, the practice of medicine is not, itself, a science. Medicine is a discipline of opinion where accepted standards of practice are determined by a consensus of the majority, not by the scientific method.
The reason the limits of science are not widely recognized and understood lies in our educational systems, which train scientists and health care providers in how to exercise the methods of science and apply their results, but do not encourage a questioning of the fundamental assumptions behind the methods themselves. The purpose of medical training is unquestioning indoctrination, not cognitive education. It is to promote, protect, and apply the prevailing paradigm — not to question it.

Pseudo science

Wholistic science, as the complete science, is often categorized as “pseudo science”. What is “pseudo science”? Pseudo science is not science at all. It is missing research, based on reliable elements. It misses critical thinking.  Interesting to read is this article. Also: Critical thinking.

Pseudoscience is a claim, belief, or practice which is presented as scientific, but does not adhere to a valid scientific method, lacks supporting evidence or plausibility, cannot be reliably tested, or otherwise lacks scientific status.

Pseudo Science is not the same as Wholistic Science.
Pseudo Science is based on a created reality of, and experiences that cannot be proved as trustworthy by those who see and hear and sense more than others. Often it is an about, a maybe.
There are people who have gifts that are not acknowledged yet, because they work with subtle energies, that are not possible to be registered by the devices science uses now. Edgar Cayce for instance.
Edgar Cayce March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American psychic who allegedly possessed the ability to answer questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis and future events while in a trance.
The answers have been proved as true.

The world is filled with pseudo psychics. There is not any exam needed to be named psychic.
The fake ones are not harmless at all.

About science, pseudo science and the Art of Healing

The New Age period has created a lot of pseudo science, that what is vague, not really scientifically researched or examined. In the way scientific research takes place now though, still, it is hardly possible to speak about a whole, complete, view on life, diseases, well being, and it is fair to conclude that science as it is acknowledged now is not reliable at all. It is dangerous and misleading.

Pseudo Science is not helping the real Alternative Medicine, Naturopathy, to be accepted as a true medicine, as a part of Wholistic Science. On the contrary, it is working against it, and creating a very healthy criticism toward itself.

Too many instable people, searching for an alternative help for their health and well being, get entangled in the web of those who are not helping them really, who work without any study or with not enough knowledge, who are therefore not constructive, not alternative at all, just vague, just floating around as souls who are from somewhere in the universe, to help the people on earth to find heaven.
Well…..!

From out of the wholistic view pseudo science and science as well should be examined and criticized again, and screened and filtered. To reject the nonsense, to keep what is true, and adding a worthy facet to the wholistic view, to wholistic science, to the true Art of Healing.

People must be informed about the danger of pseudo science, also for the misleading information about for instance the use of medicinal plants, as if everybody can just start with using it. Nature is NOT harmless.

Phytotherapy is working with the science of medicinal plants. Not with a vague information. Too many people use internet as a source of knowledge, but it is not enough. Phytotherapy is a study that cannot be googled. Phytotherapy is connected with years of study, exams and diplomas, real knowledge and expertise. Only then there is a safe guidance possible for people who want to start using medicinal herbs, only then it belongs to the Art of Healing.

Wholeness

The scientific work of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) represents a style of learning and understanding which is largely ignored today. The approach of modern science is largely detached, intellectual and analytical, and it is increasingly recognized that many of our contemporary problems stem from the resulting divorce from nature.By contrast, Goethe’s way of science pursued understanding through the experience of the ‘authentic wholeness’ of what was observed. Working with the intuitive mode of consciousness, Goethe aimed at an encounter with the whole phenomenon in its relationship with the observer. In his way of seeing, rather than dividing merely in order to categorize, we should investigate the parts of an object in order to reveal the true nature of the whole. In this invaluable study, Henri Bortoft examines the phenomenological and cultural roots of Goethe’s ways of science. He argues that Goethe’s insights, far from belonging to the past, represent the foundation for a future science. This new science of nature, involving other human faculties besides the analytical mind, can provide understanding and explanation in a way which our present scientific attitudes, and the culture they serve, desperately lack.
