In the occult literature, a distinction
is made between the higher and the lower mind. In today's society, when we speak of someone being a genius, we are generally
referring to his or her lower mind, because, at this point in human evolution, it is not clear how to evaluate genius as it
manifests through the higher mind.
Through the principles of The Art of Multi-Dimensional Living, it is revealed
that Einstein's lower mind was at the level of genius. His higher mind was just average however. Thus, his ability to correlate
his theories and findings with higher metaphysical truths was somewhat limited.
Nevertheless, Einstein's lower mind
was so attuned to the vital body sheath, that he was able to clearly distinguish matter from energy, and, to some degree,
energy from mind (the observer). He could not only intuit brilliantly novel ideas related to the energetics of creation, but
he also had a destiny to pursue these ideas to useful working hypotheses, and later, paradigm-breaking, empirically verified
If Einstein's higher mind had been as strong as his lower mind, then he would have been a dominant force
in linking quantum physics to the ancient spiritual teachings of the east and the more modern ones of the west. His inability
to lead in this arena was unfortunate because it set a precedent followed by most other theoretical physicists. Those who
have broken with this precedent, like David Bohm, have, more often than not, been ostracized to some degree or viewed as odd-balls.
Theosophist, I.K. Taimni, in his book entitled "Science and Occultism", has taken scientists to task for this neglect.
It is one of the better books on the relationship of physics to metaphysics and I recommend it highly.
failings are not as significant as his accomplishments: the establishment of a completely new worldview which, in turn, generated
a whole host of new scientific hypotheses, methodologies and applications.
Just as importantly, his brilliance as
a scientist was matched by his humaneness and willingness to tackle the major problems facing the world.
