Science & Spirituality

‘The notion that Science and Spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both. - Carl Sagan

Seeker Scientist This is the website of Dr. John J. Petrovic, Los Alamos National Laboratory Fellow (retired). This website allows the free reading of Dr Petrovic’s three books on the Science of Spirituality:"The First Principles:A Scientist's Guide to the Spiritual" (2008), "Exploring Death" (2010), "Dreams of Reality" (2012).

Dr. John J. Petrovic writes: ‘You may be asking yourself how can there be any science in spirituality. These two areas are considered by many people today to be fundamentally opposed to each other. After all, doesn't science deal with the material world while spirituality deals with the non-material, and never the two shall meet. Yet the fact of the matter is that the primary goal of science is to understand and describe reality. And the reality is that the root fundamentals of science converge with the metaphysical. In addition, there are a great many "inconvenient truths", observational facts that cannot be explained using our current scientific paradigms. For science to progress, it must come to grips with issues that seem to reside in the spirituality of the non-physical.'

'One should not confuse spirituality with religion. Spirituality encompasses the nature of the non-physical, while religion involves belief systems. The two are not the same. As a scientist, I am compelled to search for reality in whatever direction that search may take me. The content of this website is what I have discovered thus far. Feel free to explore my books and let both your logic and your intuition guide you to the truth of existence.'
