Epistemology and Metaphysics: Two Sides of One Coin

Understanding Dialectical Incarnation

by Martin J. Schade

Acceptance without proof is the fundamental characteristic of western religion. Rejection without proof is the fundamental characteristic of western science. In other words, religion has become a matter of the heart and science has become a matter of the mind. This regrettable state of affairs does not reflect the fact that, physiologically, one cannot exist without the other. Everyone needs both. Mind and heart are different aspects of us.

The Wu Li Masters know that “science” and “religion” are only dances, and that those who follow them are dancers. The dancers may claim to follow “truth” or claim to seek “reality,” but the Wu Li Masters know better. They know that the true love of all dancers is dancing.

The advocate of Dialectical Incarnation would say to the Logical Positivist: your logic is correct, your means of observing and measuring is correct, your verifying is correct, to the extent that you can verify the things you do, but you fail to see beyond the mere empirical world. Reality is dialectical and empirical observation is not the sole manner in which one can offer a proper philosophy of that reality. Reality is supernatural even though one can empirically observe only the natural.
