At first glance, the mystic and the scientist would appear to have nothing in common. The scientist deals with hard data, empirical evidence, and rigorous scientific procedures. The true mystic takes a subjective and contemplative approach to finding truth but not one that is without its own kind of discipline. The scientific method requires statistics and methods to be tabulated and verifiable. The mystic generally finds language to be inadequate as a means of conveying and expressing those profound moments of ecstasy, which are his trademark. But with the advance of modern theoretical physics, both science and mysticism seem to be searching for a fundamental unity, albeit in very different ways. 2 CDs. 1986. 160 minutes.
