A Mystic World-view: Unifying Science, Arts, and Religion

Dr Zev Bar-Lev.


It is here proposed that the central concepts of sciences both physical and social, arts, ethics, and religion are essentially parallel, and can be presented in a framework based in kabbalah (mysticism).
The paper draws the parallel between the spiritual/religious realm posited in kabbalah, the Platonic level of ideal forms, and the level of theoretical entities in science. It further uses the literary/linguistic concept of metaphor to unify these diverse domains, and entities within them.
Issues of subjectivity and objectivity, and fact vs. will, are proposed to attain working solutions within this framework.
