What do I think?
Everything has a structure, even seeming chaos. Science tells us that. Ever heard of chaos theory?
Science also tells us that there is an ever present dance between the empiric - what can be known by personal experience- and the empirical, what can be known through objective measurement. There is experience and there is observation.
The word spiritual could be said to be empiric, while the word religion could be said to be empirical. Both need each other. You really can't have one without the other. Experience without some kind of container, some practice, some structure, doesn't have much longevity.
You could also posit that empiric is a right brain activity while empirical is a left brain activity.
Poetry uses both sides of the brain.
Be the love you seek.
