“Silence and Science- Shifting from the Observed to the Observer” – by Pradeep Kumar Cheruvathoor
Silence arises by shifting from the Observed to the Observer.
Modern Science is focused on the three pillars of Observation, Experimentation and Inference. We have gone deeper in to experimentation and inference, but when it comes to the Observation, our Education system has focused on the Observed neglecting the Observer.
Quantum Physics has addressed this anomaly and has come out with the Truth that the Observer colors the Observed. Perceiver affects the Perceived. We are starting to come to terms with reality that the Observer affects the Observed. It is important that we as a society bring the focus back to the Observer.
Our Education system should realize the importance of this fundamental shift and how it can transform our whole world in to a Peaceful and Joyous society. Currently, we are a bunch of “success,” but a collective failure. Our definition of Success is not sustainable.
Currently , we have a Subject Object relationship with the people and world around us. We “think” that the world is different from “me.” Owing to this fundamental sense of separation and its cascading effects on our emotions (fear, anger, love, hatred, etc), we are in constant conflict and stress. As we start moving the focus back to the Observer, we will begin to realize that we will move from reactions to response.
The Journey from the Observed to the Observer is a journey in Self Awareness. We begin to realize that the Observed world is part of you and not ” different.” The Relationship of the Observer with the World of Objects, is not with the Objects but with the image that this so-called Object creates in the Observer. The more we come to terms with Reality, the more Peaceful and Joyful we become. We realize that what we call “suffering ” is this outward journey from the Observer to the Observed. We have to reverse this process.
If we realize the transformational effect of this fundamental shift, we can build peaceful and joyful societies, without having to compete with “others.” We realize that the “World,” or “Others,” is just an extension of One’s True Self, and therefore Peace reigns. All the good human qualities and attributes are naturally attained, as we no longer see a world that is separate.
Whatever we do to others, we realize that we are doing it to ourselves. We start doing things that are in the interest and the welfare of the “world,” for we realize that it is aligned with our own interest. Qualities such as Compassion, Empathy, and Loving Kindness are a natural concomitant.
The semantics of the word “Individual” means that which cannot be divided. All the divisions are “thought created” and are perceived only in our Head. There is no separate Work and Life as Silence is prior to thought and is your true nature. This will transform our Health, Wealth and Relationships and is the bedrock upon which we build sustainable societies.
