Recent discoveries in quantum mechanics prove that no atomic particle can exist separately from the rest of creation; therefore only unity exists. This has important implications. For example, harm we do to our environment will show up as harm we do to ourselves. Also, unity means we are intimately related to each other. And separation leads only to selfishness and destruction. This awareness could not have come at a more opportune moment because, if we persist in our belief in separation, we will continue to use science and technology in the service of greed. Two consequences will follow. 1 –The majority of humans will die gasping for breath resulting from irreversible air pollution. 2 - Continued exploitation of the third world will end in nuclear war. Only our acceptance of unity will enable us to survive.
But unity is not material, so it can only be spiritual. From this, new, incredible horizons of mystery unfold. We will see that we humans are essentially divine, and mind will be recognized as an ocean of consciousness in which we swim like fishes in a universal sea. Also, three scientifically valid spiritual laws will appear. They are:
1. The Law of Unity. All is one and one is divine. Therefore each apparently separate entity deserves respect appropriate to its essential divinity.
2. The Law of Karma. We get back what we give out. Therefore we are entirely responsible for our world and everything we experience within it.
3. The Law of Love. It is the motive behind the action, not the action itself that determines its consequence. It follows from this that, if we continue to allow greed to motivate our technology, disaster will follow. Therefore, we must replace the profit motive by the love motive.
Many people see the need for this, but they see no way to achieve it. However, it is surprisingly simple. Anybody can do it. Examples are given of an office worker, a builder and a waitress, who, by their belief in unity, enable their enlightening influence to spread to the most distant star.
The author presents scientific evidence in support of his assertions. He also shows how correlations from ancient wisdom complement our awareness of the new spirituality now apparent in science.

About the Author

Alan A. D. Cohen was born in England in the first half of the 20th Century. From early childhood, he had an intense interest in both science and the mysterious worlds of mind and spirit. In pursuit of scientific knowledge, he graduated from the Imperial College of Science and Technology, London University. Thereafter he worked in industrial research, and educational filmmaking. Around thirty five, and motivated by his continuing search for spiritual awareness, he learned to meditate. Some years later he moved to the USA. Thereafter, and for many years, he taught audio technology at the Institute of Audio Research in New York. Now retired, he has integrated his spiritual and scientific awareness in a book entitled, Science & Spirit Reconciled. It presents a philosophy of unity, harmony and spiritual peace much needed at this time in our scientific and technological evolution.
One particular mental characteristic has persisted since his earliest childhood. It is that he felt, and still feels, a powerful need to help save the world from the curse of war. At the age of five, he remembers, he asked his father; “If people are hanged for killing someone, why is it that in war people are not hanged when they kill someone?”
His father answered, “Because it is all right to kill in war.”
This answer didn’t satisfy him then, and it never has. As a result, he has lived with a strong compulsion to help outlaw wars in whatever way seems both beneficial and effective.
To further this objective, he has recently shown his completed manuscript to a number of like-minded people. As a result, while in the USA, he was asked to give a talk on this subject to a meeting of the Church of Humanism. And, when he recently returned to Britain, he was asked by the Cardiff Unitarian Church, to talk on the subject of his book. He hopes that by his talks and the publication of this book he will help to reduce the time it takes for people to waken from the nightmare of war.
