The New Reformation: From Physical to Spiritual Realities

Excerpt

The realities described in the following seven narratives are the realities of human experience. They are not realities in the sense in which the word "reality" is often discussed by metaphysicists and speculative philosophers. Abstract philosophical discussions are foreign to the thoughts which guide these narratives.

The revelations of science during the last four hundred years succeeded each other like so many acts of a cosmic drama. Each act revealed a new physical reality which advanced man's understanding of nature's language, the language of the cosmic drama.

The first act announced the heliocentric planetary system of Copernicus and Kepler; the second revealed it as a celestial structure, each part of which moves in strict obedience to ideally simple laws, the laws discovered by Galileo and Newton. These discoveries disclosed a new physical reality, the reality of visible matter in motion.
