It’s like in the Matrix. The Red pill, or the Blue pill. Either you can journey into yourself, that which is to journey into the Other… or you can’t. And if you find that you are unable to journey into yourself … it’s perfectly fine to keep watching reality TV, keep listening to pop music, keep doing whatever it is you are doing. It’s okay. You’ll realize what all this was about when you lie with the maggots. Nature will teach you. No worries.
No violence. No hatred. No judgments. Just be. Nature will teach you everything. What is the observation of nature if not science. And what is science if not the study of ourselves. But somewhere along the way we got lost and thought science is the only method to knowledge. There are some forms of knowledge no scientific modality can test or study. That’s the nature of the chaos of subjective experience. And until science can do something to tell me what I already can’t find out by subjective experience… well… there it is.
What can science tell me about my subjective experience that I can’t already find out for myself through my own subjective experience? Hmm?
I’ve looked. Science has no more to say on the subject of subjectivity. When it does, we’ll see. Until it can, the only thing we have is subjectivity. The ‘Other’ lies in subjectivity. Not something you can look for using the scientific method.
