1 What Zhuangzi said about the societal phenomena over two thousand years ago, that “the system of the Dao was about to be torn into fragments under the sky” is shockingly still repeating itself, even now, in the highly developed civilization of the twentieth century.
2 The culprit of the matter is the separation of mind and matter. Once separated, it is almost impossible for them to become merged again. The separation causes Schizophrenia, moral collapse, confused identities, loss of standards, feelings of emptiness, overflow of material desires, as well as grave disasters occurring in many places, with no end in sight.
3 All that took place in the past two or three hundred years is becoming history and is still waiting to be judged. People’s pursuit of material enjoyment today will have a direct effect on everyone’s life and existence for the next one or two hundred years and more generations to come. It is of utmost importance, and what is needed the most, is that everything should begin with the union of mind and matter.
4 As Einstein said: “To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties. This knowledge, this feeling: that is the core of the true religious sentiment.”
5 Based on my personal shallow thought, what the scientist said “the core of the true religious sentiment” is the union of religious philosophy and science. In other words, the essence of the union of mind and matter.
