Science is useful for discovering physical facts about the world but to discover broader, metaphysical truths we need to venture beyond the bounds of traditional science into that realm that some people call “woo”!
That realm could be described as the realm of the heart, the realm of feeling, the realm of realisation, the realm of soul, the realm of mind, the realm of experience. The labels are endless. But it is nothing that a scientist with a test tube in a lab will ever understand! Instead we must engage ourselves on all levels of our being, not just our intellect, if we are to obtain a broader, more "truthful" perspective of life!
