10 - What is the relationship between science and faith?

Science cannot deny faith. Faith cannot deny science.

The scientist operates according to the methods of modern science and the more he deepens his knowledge of reality, the more he experiments with a volition that realizes the existence of everything.

The development of scientific research allows us to make contact with that volition more and more.

Moreover, man is the only being on Earth able to wonder about his existence and this question is already a confirmation that he belongs to a reality that is bigger than the earthly one, namely the one we experience through our five senses.

A first clear certainty of science is the gradual and increasing complexity of the reality we know, that the microcosm and the macrocosm always arrives at man.

Scientists continue to detect smaller and smaller particles of matter and energy and reach more and more distant galaxies and bigger and bigger clusters, but nothing in the universe known to date is more complex than the human being.

The complexity of man is reached through an enormous variety of living beings, on a scale of complexity where the beings on one step are necessary for the existence of those on the next step up.

As complexity grows, the functions and capabilities of organisms linked to consciousness of the self and of the world expand. Thus knowledge and consequently joy and sorrow are magnified, as is the possibility or impossibility of carrying out any vital function in the self or in the world.

Life therefore overbearingly manifests itself as the end to which the complexity of existence is inclined.

Life is inclined towards life. Life leads to the consciousness of self, to the defence of the self.

However the very existence of this consciousness, which leads to defence, implies the existence of volition contrary to life.

At a certain stage in its development, it seems that this scale of complexity abruptly ends. Man appears on the last, highest step. Even man is subject to negative volition that puts an end to the life in our body.

The human being, however, reaches a point of such high complexity as to ask himself why this increasingly complex structure exists and what is the purpose of this reality, severed like a body without a head.

For scientific reasoning, everything around us appears perfectly finalized.

Every living being is necessary for the existence of another more complex living being. And for which living being is the human being indispensable?

So one wonders what distinguishes human beings from other beings in the universe. It is in fact the element of distinction that feeds the next rung on the ladder of complexity.

The answer is contained within this same question, in the existence of science.

Man is the only being who questions his own essence, his own existence, who has the ability to get to the bottom of the reality that manifests itself in the universe.

If, therefore, the human being gives life to another entity, he has in common with that entity his own ability to know the universe, science.

Therefore this superior entity, which science leads us to by deduction, would have in common with man something which is not matter, nor electromagnetic energy, so would not be subject to the negative volition that in in contrast with life of the body.This entity would have in common what man calls the soul, the indestructible life, which is finalized the existence, not only ours, but of all the beings that populate the universe.
