In What Way Could Meditation Practice Relate To Cosmology?

cosmology – the science of the origin and development of the universe.

This is a great question, one ripe for many angles of inquiry. Here are a few thoughts on it.

  • We are part of the universe, looking inward is the universe looking back on itself.
  • We are part of the universe, our origin and development follow the same rules and behaviors of the cosmos. Looking inward is a wonderful way to generate questions and hypothesis about it.
  • We are part of the universe, the mysteries of the self; introspection, subjectivity, and life are contained in us. Looking inward helps us to form a frame of reference to poke at theories that fail to accurately or completely explain the cosmos.
  • We are part of the universe. Looking inward shows us that the boundaries between ourselves and others are less real than we thought they were.
  • We are part of the universe. Discovering the challenges of introspection, gives us important information about how we should view the reliability of and obstacles to observation.
