Physical science aka physics, I believe is but one side of a coin. Where social sciences like psychology and many others are the other side. There is the physical world and the mental world. One can effect the other like physical pleasure effects ones mood, or mental state. But how much can ones mood, or mental state effect the physical world. Direct or indirect?
The world we live in is but an illusion. We can all see it in front of us but how much of it is true. You see there are two sides to everything and everything comes in three’s. Up has down and left has right. Where does the three come in to play? Well that’s what’s in between. You have two different objects and you combine them well that makes the third. Much like the heads and tails of a coin, everything has two sides and combined it makes something new, different, a third. Physics is one side of a coin. The physical universe , what we see and feel, what’s in front, beside, and behind us. We live in the physical universe and we are governed by the laws of physics. And nature. We live in the constraints of our physical self. We obey the laws set forth by who or what created us. We are but fish in a small pond with no clue what’s beyond our reach. But we have a small advantage over other living things. We can see on the other side. Flip the coin over and you see the mental universe. One not governed by the constraints of the physical universe. The mental universe doesn’t ascend or descend the physical one, it transcends it. We all know the physical universe can effect the mental one. We spend our lives doing so everyday. The food we eat, the things we drink. The cars we buy to make others see different of you. Everything we do, we do it to Stimulate our senses. That changes our mood which in turn effects our mental state. Now if the physical universe can effect the mental one, how much can our mental universe effect our physical one. Our physical universe we see when our eyes are open, but our mental one we see with our eyes closed. Our mental universe is far beyond our physical one. We know more about our physical universe which goes on infinite. Than we know about our own conscious minds. That is because our eyes are open the physical but closed to the mental. We can learn a lot about our physical self by understanding physics or Neuroscience. That tells us how we are, but psychology or social science. Doesn’t teach us how. It teaches us why we are. Chemical changes in our brains change our mood but what causes the physical change. Why are the chemicals released in the first place. It’s a cycle. Mental change causes a physical , chemicals to be produced which in turn changes our mental state. Gives us a mental change. And the cycle starts over. There are two sides to everything. One can’t survive without the other. The physical and the mental. Working together and combining to make the third. Life. Who we are and what we are. Our eyes are open to the physical but closed to the mental. When we finally realise and understand that we can start to open our eyes. And look beneath what the eyes can see. To see things for what they truly are and not what they appear to be.
