What is the Spirit? Some Physics of Spiritual Existence
In the West there is a perceived conflict, or at least a discontinuity, between religion and natural science. Usually when we talk of religion and science in the same breath what first comes to mind is the ongoing creation-evolution debates. Discussions of intelligent design are currently the fashion in this field. However I believe that there is a more fundamental ontological gulf between religion and natural science that divides the two more effectively than any discussion of purpose or intelligent intervention in the development of life. That discontinuity arises over understanding the nature of spiritual existence.
