Talk #7 of the Series, The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 04

"What is the greatest mystery of existence? It is not life, it is not love – it is death.

"Science tries to understand life; hence remains partial. Life is only a part of the total mystery, and a very tiny part – superficial, just on the circumference. It has no depth, it is shallow. Hence science remains shallow. It knows much and knows it in great detail, but all its knowing remains superficial – as if you know the ocean only by its waves and you have never dived deep into it, and you don't know its infinity.

"Life is finite, momentary. This moment it is there, the next moment gone. It is a breeze, comes and goesit does not abide. Hence the claim of science that it knows the truth is not true."

Osho continues:
"It knows only the partial truth, and to claim the partial as the total is one of the absurdities of the scientific approach. What it knows is true, but it is not the whole truth. And the moment you claim that the part is the whole, you falsify even the part.

"Love is midway. It is exactly in the middle of life and death. It is half life, half death; hence the fear of love. Unless you are ready to die, you cannot know love – although by dying you become more alive. It is through death that love resurrects itself again and again. It is by disappearing that it appears again and again.

"Love is far more mysterious than life itself, because it has life in it and something more too: life plus death. Fifty percent of love is life, fifty percent is death. And only those who are ready to die will know the life of love. Those who are afraid to die will never enter the mystery of love.

"Art explores the world of love. Hence art is far truer than science, goes deeper than science. The vision of the artist contains much more than scientific knowledge can ever contain, although the way of art is totally different from the way of science. It has to be different. Science can be objective because it is peripheral. Art cannot be absolutely objective; it is fifty percent objective, fifty percent subjective. It cannot be free from the observer.

"Science tries to be absolutely free from the observer; the observer should not enter in it, should not participate, should remain absolutely neutral, nonparticipant, a spectator. He should not bring himself into it. That is the scientific outlook.

"But how can you avoid the knower? If you really want to know, the knower is bound to enter into knowledge.

"Now the more perceptive scientists are becoming alert to the phenomenon that it is impossible to be absolutely impartial: the observer is bound to be reflected by his observations. He cannot be a pure spectator. He will interpret, he will theorize, he will create hypotheses and he will move through his hypotheses. He will choose because the details are infinite."
