Talk #13 of the Series, The Fish in the Sea Is Not Thirsty

"Man is a dilemma, because man is a duality. Man is not one single being: man is the past and the future. The past means the animal, and the future means the divine. And between the two is the present moment, between the two is man's existence – divided, torn apart, pulled in diametrically opposite directions.

"If man looks backwards he is an animal. That's why science cannot believe that man is anything more – just another animal – because science only searches into the past. Charles Darwin and others, they are right that man is born of the animals. It is true about the past, but it is not true about man's totality.

"Religion looks into the possible, into that which can happen and has not yet happened. Science dissects the seed and cannot find any flowers there."

Osho continues:
"Religion is visionary, it dreams – and is capable of seeing that which has not happened yet: the flower. Of course, it cannot be found, that flower cannot be found, by dissecting the seed. It needs great insight, not capacity to analyze, but some intuitive flight, some vision, some poetic approach. It needs a real dreamer who can see that which has not happened yet.

"Religion looks into the possible and finds man is not an animal, but divine: man is godliness – both are true. The conflict is baseless. The conflict between science and religion is futile. Their directions, their methods of work, their fields, are totally different.

"Science always reduces everything to the source, and religion always takes a flight to the goal. Man is both, hence man is a dilemma, a constant anxiety: to be or not to be, to be this or to be that?

"Man can find peace only in two ways: either he becomes an animal again – then he will be one, then there will be no division, then again there will be peace, silence, harmony. And that's why millions of people try to be animals in different ways.

"War gives a chance for man to become animal; hence war has great attraction. In three thousand years' history man has fought five thousand wars – continuously, somewhere or other, the war continues. Not even a single day passes when man is not killing other men. Why such tremendous joy in destruction, in killing? The reason is deep down in the psychology of man.

"The moment you kill, suddenly you are one; you become the animal again, the duality disappears. Hence, in murder, in suicide, there is a tremendous magnetic force. Man cannot be persuaded yet to be nonviolent. Violence erupts. Names change, slogans change, but the violence remains the same. It may be in the name of religion, in the name of political ideology, or any absurd thing – a football match is enough for people to get violent, a cricket match is enough.

"People are so much interested in violence that if they cannot do it themselves – because it is risky and they think of the consequences – they find vicarious ways to be violent."
