Because she’s a blithering space cadet.
Our conventional way of thinking about the world remains profoundly dualistic.
I don’t like dualism. Huffington sounds like she thinks it’s a problem too, but we’ll soon see she doesn’t, really.
The physical and the rational in a supposedly eternal and inexorable battle against the unseen and the spiritual.
The real versus delusion…it’s a battle alright. Which side are you going to be on?
In fact, the barriers between these two dimensions — built by the narrow rationalism of the Enlightenment — are now being dismantled by modern science and a growing chorus of personal experiences.
“Two dimensions”? I don’t think she knows what the word means. “Narrow rationalism of the enlightenment”? That’s a prelude to the usual denigration of reason and evidence by the woo-woo crowd.
And no, modern science is not making Arianna Huffington’s fantasies of a spiritual dimension become real. I find it very annoying when the anti-scientific kooks try to claim the support of science.
What we’re seeing — if we are willing to look — is that we are not alone in an indifferent universe.
The aliens are here? Show me!
As Goethe put it, “This life, gentlemen, is much too short for our souls.” If this life were sufficient for our souls, we would not go through it consumed with fear.
Wait…she’s just told us that modern science is bridging the barriers between the physical and the spiritual, and the best she can do is quote a 18th century romantic poet and philosopher? I am not impressed.
And speak for yourself, Arianna. I don’t go through life consumed with fear.
Reintegrating the spiritual and the everyday is the key to fearlessness. But ending this division is not easy when we’ve stopped even acknowledging that we live caught between these two worlds. When we’re consumed with climbing the career ladder or just making a living, the spiritual seems unreal and far away.
There aren’t two worlds. There’s one. It’s called reality. The spiritual seems unreal because it is.
She only wrote five short paragraphs, and it’s complete crap. No wonder she keeps Deepak Chopra around — it’s so someone is there to make her look sane by comparison.
