Albert Einstein

When Albert Einstein (1879-1955) revolutionized Physics with his theory of relativity, understood in the extraordinary equation E = mc2, no one could refer any longer to mass and energy as two distinct things, because one is the other in a different condition. Similarly, the father of quantum physics, Max Planck (1858-1947), came up with E = hν, another equivalence between physical quantities. This is, therefore, a question of frequency. Thus mutatis mutandis occurs between matter and Spirit. The human body (mass) you can see, touch, smell, hear, so you can “prove” a concrete “reality.” This does not happen with energy (Spirit). However, it does not mean that energy does not exist, since the effect of its action spreads everywhere. Our five commonly known material senses are (still) quite flawed given the true (still) invisible occurrence that surrounds us. The only exception is those who have a special psychic sensitivity, the so-called sixth sense (which may not be the last one) for grasping from the Spiritual World what the ordinary earthly beings have so far not seen or understood.

To deny the Spirit is to repudiate the atom

If we are to question the living presence of the Spirits, let us then begin by denying the existence of the atom, which remains imperceptible to naked human eyes, but it does exist. This seems a crazy thing for a mentality that is used to continue acting according to the pretentious geo-anthropocentric thinking, despite knowing that the Earth is not the center of the Universe and human beings are a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the Cosmos. Graça Aranha (1868-1931), the renowned author of Canaã, and one of the founding members of the Brazilian Academy of Letters, opens our minds to the infinite knowledge when he says that “the march of Science is like ours on the desert plain: the horizon is always escaping us.”


From an intellectual to a spiritual quest

Galileo Galilei

Science is a constant intellectual pursuit. The day will come when everyone will understand that their ultimate apanage will be that of a permanent spiritual quest. As I have been saying, there is a Science from divine spheres that go beyond the Science of the human dimension. There are also many thinkers and academics who boldly dedicate themselves to unveiling these so-called “mysteries.” Faced with taboos that are reinforced by their own equals, they find themselves on the right path that pioneering and outstanding scientists have been treading for centuries. A general example, which needs no introduction, is Galileo Galilei (1564-1642). More than 400 years have passed since the first telescopic observations of the sky were made by the “grandfather of physics.”

He is an author of international reference in the concept and defense of the cause of Ecumenical Citizenship and Spirituality which, according to him, constitute “the cradle of the most generous values that are born of the Soul, the dwelling of the emotions and of the reasoning enlightened by intuition, the atmosphere that embraces everything that transcends the ordinary field of matter and comes from the elevated human sensitivity, such as Truth, Justice, Mercy, Ethics, Honesty, Generosity, and Fraternal Love.”
