There is a fine line between what you are and what the universe is. I believe the difference is marked within the mind.
Although, science doesn't care what I believe. Science simply provides that which has been proven and quantified.
Has science thoroughly explored the self? A force within the body, or expressing itself as the body?
If science has proven the differentiation between the "self" and the "universe," then there is a lag time to extensively comprehend that distinction or the total properties of both.
There is less of need for proof, and more of a need for integrity and consistency in the searcher for relevant facts.
