Philosophy

“How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

Anne Frank.

At the Einstein Initiative we consider philosophy a very important part of our work and theories. Sometimes, philosophy can give us more questions than answers but most importantly, philosophy in all its concepts can get us to think more and become more aware of ourselves, the people that we encounter and the world we live in. Philosophy can help us understand some of the important questions we have about life now and life after physical death. It can also teach us in the areas of reality, existence, knowledge, values, the human mind, religion and reason.

 

"A philosopher is a person who knows less and less about more and more, until he knows about everything. A scientist is a person who knows more and more about less and less, until he knows everything about nothing."

John Ziman

There are many people in this world who dont realise it but are great philosophers because they have been inspired to say the right thing at the right time. Philosophy, is also about wisdom, as well as expressing beliefs and theories in a way that is inspiring and thought provoking. It can also be about expressing ones own experiences of life. 

Philosophy does not teach right or wrong but encourages the use of the physical and spiritual mind. We must question everything we see, feel, read and experience, as by doing so, it will allow us to become more aware of life around us. Learning about philosophy has enormous benefits to the human mind and can help us understand some of the fundamental laws of spiritual and scientific developments.
