“Therefore, we could ask ourselves if there could also be other ‘ways of seeing’ that do not contradict or even replace science but eventually complement and enrich it.
Present science is intrinsically limited by the material sense-mind perception that instinctively reduces, particularizes, atomizes, and separates.
Again, there is nothing wrong with an intellectual and rational activity that analyzes the whole by a bottom-up process beginning from reduction, polarization, differentiation, and separation.
However, the question is whether we can equally develop a ‘complementary sense’ that sees things differently, namely, by a top-down vision of the whole first where particulars are not the parts of this Oneness but, rather, manifestations of it at a different level.
Can we develop another ‘sense of seeing’ leading to another ‘understanding’ of the world, which transcends the mind and reason without abolishing it?”
— Marco Masi ‘Spirit Calls Nature’.
