Tao in Modern Science & Modern Science in Ancient Tao Wisdom

In our era, colaborative knowledge and Internet transcend the borders between people, scientific domains and the areas of our planet. This site is dediated to the research of the cross-overs between seemingly disparate areas, East and West, science and esoteric knowledge, spiritual and physical, Oneness and Uniqueness, problems of mankind and the ideas for their solution.

Tao Science Institute is a non-profit organization, working in cooperation with Daoist Association USA and Yu Xu temple in Estes Park, Colorado, on the mission to research and document texts of the ancient Eastern Wisdom from the rigorous perspectives of the Modern Science, as well as the published works of the Modern Science (related to Personal Development and Longevity) in the light of the lineage Taoist practice.

Ancient Taoist sages were studiyg the laws of Nature in a holistic way and expressed their discoveries in many valuale manuscripts. Dao De Jing by Lao Zi stands out between other works with a very comprehensive and sophisticated point of view to the Universe as well as the Road Map for its practical application in the area of personal development and especially Internal Alchemy. Our book, Dao De Jing: Ancient Immmortal's Theory of Everything presents translation and analysis of the this fascinating classic, from the perspectives of both modern scieence and the lineage Alchemy practice.

In modern age, the research of the Truths about universe is much more segmented into different and sometime conflicting domains of study. As a number of people who seriously searched for the Truth discovered (and we discuss in our book Jade Writing), the "gray areas" and singularity points between specialized domains introduced by human thought, are still subject to some subtle laws of Nature, but out of scope of common, "either-or" logic or the linear causality. Causality and paradox, Symmetry and Symmetry-Breaking, peace and change together form the Mysterious Reality that enompases all "constellations" with their local customs. Every era brings different advantages and challenges in understanding the totality of Universe and all its parts, in the never-ending process.

However, the open space of Infinite Mysteries should not discourage us, as it is also balanced by the holistic Truths with inner consistence and completeness, that can satisfy the thirst of the researchers. The cultivation of Peace and Prosperity together is not just a moral aspiration, it is a response to a a beautiful design pattern of the Universe, that transcend closed and open systems, Self and Selflessnes.

With the advancement of the overall human knowledge, the methodology and the systems of reference of the researchers were also subject to the change. Lately, due to increased powers of technology that affect all people on Earth, many humanitarians have been independently coming to an idea of the Global Awareness. The feeling of Oneness or Selflessness, that in a pragmatic sense mapps to a field of the current knowledge and energy effects, has thus grown from the hords, tribes and ethnic groups to the whole Mankind. The maturation of the global access to the facts and information around the world makes possible for the people, for the first time, to see and understand the reality not only from the viewpoints of a specific domain, their own expierence or one of surrounding community circle (zero or one-dimensional viewpoint arrangements), but also from the more holistic system of reference, a two-dimensional, planetary. Sphere Perspective, compiled as a mosaic of many participating sources of information. From even wider point of view though, known to the practitioners of the esoteric sciences, the overall human conscsiosness is also just a tiny drop in the sea of the higher-dimensional, infinite Divine Spirit.

The role of the Individual and the smaller communities, at any level, is not reduced in any way by its integration to a Whole, it just settles into its true place and identity, a root of the unique, noble, mission within a higher reality. The holography principle discovered by physicist David Bohm, doctor Karl Pribram and others, an interaction between Universal and Specific, Macrocosms and Microcosmos, Great (Tai) Harmony and Central (Zhong) Harmony of the ancient Taoist studies, or Totality Centering Symmetry is one of the deepest Laws of the Nature. We can mature and prosper immensly by letting the Light of the Universal Wisdom into ourselfs. At the same time we never know how much the whole world can benefit from the seemengly accidental insights or advancements of any group of people or the single Individual. Every act in the Search for Truth and for the Peace and Prosperity of All counts and even if it is only internal, it gets reflected to the subtle texture of the Unvierse.

Research and translation of the ancient manuscripts takes enormous time and resources. Only a small fraction of the manuscripts of Taoist Canon (Dao Zang) had been translated to Western Languages. We currently translated and analyzed a couple of important manuscripts (links on the right), but even there we just scratched the surface of the hidden misteries of health, longevity and potentially immortality that were once know by the old masters.
