Title: SCIENCE*
Resource name: /E-Library/Authors from Other Centers/B G Patel/English/Sri Aurobindo on Humanities/Science.htm
* SCIENCE*       Science, like most mental and external knowledge, gives you only truth of process. I would add that it cannot give you even the whole truth of process; for you seize some of the ponderables, but miss the all-important imponderables; you get, hardly even the how, but the conditions under which things happen in Nature, After all the triumphs and marvel of Science the explaining principle, the rationale, the significance of the whole is left as dark, as mysterious and even more mysterious than ever. The scheme it has built up of the evolution not only of this rich and vast and variegated material world, but of life and consciousness and mind and their workings out of a bru

 POSTSCRIPT TO SRI AUROBINDO'S REVISED EDITION OF THE IDEAL OF HUMAN UNITY   At the time when this book was being brought to its close, the first attempt at the foundation of some initial hesitating beginning of the new world-order, which both governments and people had begun to envisage as a permanent necessity if there was to be any order in the world at all, was under debate and consideration but had not yet been given a concrete and practical form: but this had to come and eventually a momentous begining was made. It took the name and appearance of what was called a League of Nations. It was not happy in its conception, well-inspired in its formation or destined t

Title: APPENDIX
Resource name: /E-Library/Authors from Other Centers/B G Patel/English/Sri Aurobindo on Humanities/Appendix.htm
APPENDIX A MESSAGE TO AMERICA         I have been asked to send on this occasion of the fifteenth August a message to the West, but I have to say might be delivered equally as a message to the East. It has been customary to dwell on the division and difference between these two sections of the human family and even oppose them to each other; but, or myself I would rather be disposed to dwell on oneness and unity than on division and difference. East and West have the same human nature, a common human destiny, the same aspiration after a greater perfection, the same seeking after something higher than itself, something towards which inwardly and even outwardly we move. There h

THE SPIRITUAL AIM IN SOCIETY       The true and full spiritual aim in society will regard man not as a mind, a life and a body, but as a soul incarnated for a divine fulfilment up-on earth, not only in heavens beyond, which after all it need not have left if it had no divine business here in the world of physical, vital and mental nature. It will therefore regard the life, mind and body neither as ends in themselves, sufficient for their own satisfaction, nor as mortal members full of disease which have only to be dropped off for the rescued spirit to flee away into its own pure regions, but as first instruments of the soul, the yet imperfect instruments of an unseized diviner purpo

Resource name: /E-Library/Authors from Other Centers/B G Patel/English/Sri Aurobindo on Humanities/Nature Of Physical Science.htm
* NATURE OF PHYSICAL SCIENCE*        This preoccupation with life and matter is at the beginning right and necessary because the first step that man has to take is to know and possess this physical existence as well as he can by applying his thought and intelligence to such experience of it as his sense-mind can give to him; but this is only a preliminary step and, if we stop there, we have made no real progress: we are where we were and have gained only more physical elbow-room to move about in and more power for our mind to establish a relative knowledge and an insufficient and precarious mastery and for our life-desire to push things about and jostle and hustle aro
Resource name: /E-Library/Authors from Other Centers/B G Patel/English/Sri Aurobindo on Humanities/Some Remedies.htm
* SOME REMEDIES * A life of unity, mutuality and harmony born of a deeper and wider truth of our being is the only truth of life that can successfully replace the imperfect mental constructions of the past which were a combination of association and regulated conflict, an accommodation of egos and interests grouped or dovetailed into each other to form a society, a consolidation by common general life-motives, a unification by need and the pressure of struggle with outside forces. It is such a change and such a reshaping of life for which humanity is blindly beginning to seek, now more and more with a sense that its very existence depends upon finding the way. The evolution of mind wor

THE SYNTHESIS OF YOGA I LIFE AND YOGA     In the right view both of life and of Yoga all life is either consciously or subconsiously a Yoga. For we mean by this term a methodised effort towards self-perfection by the expression of the potentialities latent in the being and a union of the human individual with the universl and transcendent Existence we see partially expressed in man and in the Commos. But all life, when we look behind its appearances, is a vast Yoga of Nature attempting to realise her perfection in an ever increasing experssion of her potentialities and to unite herself with her own divine reality. In man, her thinker, she for the first time
