What you have scratched is the tip of an Iceberg. Human beings are an intellectual species who want to understand things.
Rituals per se work by working only the psychological thought process. If they are in alignment with reality then the belief formed is correct. Anybody can understand it and explain it to other human beings using language.
The problem arises when the result is not in alignment with reality and causes confusion.Then logic versus illogical debate starts and differences in thoughts are formed.
These differences have cost all the hardships to humankind and have divided them so long. Being grateful 2 all mankind for having achieved so much of thoughts we can move forward with more information that explains these rituals and the science behind it.
Spirituality ignored reality and science ignored what was not visible to the senses but existed in reality. Now we have a study which extends and takes us beyond the limitation of both the paths.
A new alternative which explains human beings and their existence as part of whole universe. Human beings being the most complicated physical substance on earth with consciousness that cannot be seen but felt and understood is the first step.
I have put together a small ppt explaining human beings and would like to know your thoughts on the same.
I will be sharing more about existence and other elements which co exist on the earth.
