I think so, too.
Gregg Braden has been trying to bring the 2 together for awhile.
Many youtubes on his bridging the gap.

The two are starting to converge. On both sides dross is being cast off and the real debate is why humans need to have everything explained? Do they feel more secure for knowing that something can be explained even if they can't themselves understand it?

I'm ok about spirituality being regarded as 'science' which is the systematized collection of data and turning it into information. But it has to be rigorous and peer reviewed so we can be sure we're all observing the same thing (whatever it may be).

Science doesn't stand still for even a moment - nor does spirituality so I for one would want to know the provenance of a hypothesis.

While I am waiting for the final decision, I am surprised to find that the Ministry of Finance has already created a 'National Research Foundation' NRF with a $7.5 Billion fund for Mega Researches including Spirituality. This solves my funding problem paving my way for the project.

Nature worked silently during all these years to facilitate spreading its knowledge. This is a warning to Harvard like universities who do not teach Nature's Bio-Laws related with life. Soon they would be surpassed by Puri University www.puriuniversity.com

Wish university gets a success producing graduates who are self-confident, professional, entrepreneurial ,creative , curiosity driven , integral , hardworking , loving ,cheerful, enthusiastic, hopeful and faithful and not mere diffident & dull job seeker in the employment exchange.

Getting funding is one challenge and succeeding in the overall mission is altogether different. Hope and trust these are meticulously planned and executed .

Also I feel comparing with other universities is irrelevant. Lots of people (including Indians) who have graduated from those universities lead genuinely good life (on a lighter note 7 drop outs from harward are in top billionaires list today ). They may have their reasons not to adopt any curricula based bio-laws (as explained-demonstrated to them).

class divide or class specialization

Sigh.

I do understand in history there has been lots of class divides and humans have suffered lot . But not all times such specialized knowledge results in class divide . It can also lead to class specialization with benefits of specialization devoid of higher lower / superior inferior class divides based on race, color , religion,language,nationality ,sex , money , ideology etc .

Class specialization essentially recognizes following
1. That a group of people can excel in their job in a given conducive conditions and society / customers get the benefits of their excellence.
2. No person can do everything in his/her life by himself .
3. It takes lot of continuous repeated efforts of somebody to excel even in small activity .
4. Society needs wide range of activity to be done for the overall well being of the society .
5. One class does not exploit others and treat other classes on equality in rewards / dealings / respect.
6. Classes promote excellence & honesty among themselves taking into account interests of the society/customers over their's own.

If people do exactly opposite of what said above , class divide can occur .

So ultimately it all depends on people what they make of what .
