Approaching Nirvana (6)
Scientists are trying to have “T.O.E”. T.O.E means T stands for Theory, O stands for Of and E stands for Everything. So, T.O.E stands for Theory of Everything. However, they cannot construct it very well. Sometime, they admit that they have not yet gained TOE, they are still trying and it’s like getting nearer and nearer to gain it completely. From our point of view, they cannot have TOE because they cannot be the master of craving. TOE can be constructed after we have conquered craving. They are slave to physical sentimental values. So, they cannot have T.O.E, and also they cannot have the highest triumph of human knowledge.
It is their aim to get the highest triumph of human knowledge. But, the possibility is not much. In this case, we realized that only if we have sacrificed egocentric sentimental sexual feelings, then we can have such kind of knowledge: the highest triumph of human knowledge. So, in this case, we are much better than the scientific goals. We, Buddhists are keep trying and when we’re successful, we will have the highest triumph of human knowledge. This means that we will have the power to attain Nirvana. Realizing Nirvana is the highest triumph of human knowledge for Buddhists. So, regarding the level of knowledge, We Buddhists are more preferable than the Scientific method.
As you know, Scientific method is very good because of its characters such as Systematization, Causality, Predictability, Verifiability and Objective character; these are very famous characters of scientific research. However, they cannot attain the highest triumph of human knowledge. We, Buddhists keep trying to annihilate the inner part of the egocentric feelings of sex. When we are successful, then we can have the highest triumph of human knowledge. As a matter of fact, some of our successful Buddhists are already attaining Nirvana which is the highest triumph of human knowledge. This is good news for Buddhists.
