Talk #9 of the Series, Secrets of Yoga

"A hundred years ago, one of the greatest thinkers of the world, Friedrich Nietzsche, declared that God is dead. He was declaring something that was becoming clearer to everybody. He simply declared the feeling of all the thinkers of the world, particularly the science-oriented people. Science was winning every day against religion, superstition; and science was conquering so much that it was almost certain that in the future God cannot exist, religion cannot exist. It was felt all over the world that God had become part of history and that God would exist in the museums, in the libraries, in the books, but not in human consciousness. It was felt as if matter had won the last, final war with God.

"When Nietzsche declared, 'God is dead,' he meant that now life will not in any way be a destiny; it has become accidental, because God is nothing but the coordinating principle of life."

Osho continues:
"God is the organic unity of life. God is that energy which has glued everything together. God is that law which has made a cosmos out of a chaos. Once God is not there, the coordinating principle is not there, the world again becomes a chaos, just an accident. With God, disappears all order. With God, disappears all principle. With God, disappears all possibility to understand life. And with God, man also disappears.

"Nietzsche himself declared that God is dead and man is free now, but in fact once God is dead, man is not there. Then man is just matter, nothing more, is explainable, is a mystery no more, has depth no more, has infinity no more, and has meaning no more, significance no more, is just an accident – has appeared accidentally, will disappear accidentally.

"But Nietzsche proved wrong. It appears that it was something like the age of scientific youth; the nineteenth century was the age of science's coming of age. And as every youth is too full of confidence, too optimistic, in fact foolishly optimistic, the same was the case with science. In Tibet they have a saying that every young man thinks old people to be fools, but every old man knows that all young people are fools. Young people only think, but old people know. Science was the youngest growth in human consciousness, and science was much too confident; it even declared God is dead and religion is no longer relevant, it is 'out of context.' Religion was part of humanity's childhood, they declared. Freud wrote a book, The Future of an Illusion – about religion, that it is just an illusion and there is no future really.

"But God survived, and a miracle has happened within these hundred years. If Nietzsche comes back he will not be able to believe what has happened; the more the scientific mind penetrated into matter, the more it came to know that matter does not exist. God survived, matter died. Matter has almost disappeared from scientific vocabulary. It exists in ordinary language, but it is just because of old habit; otherwise there is no matter now. The deeper the scientific penetration became, the deeper they came to understand that it is energy not matter."
