Of late, I have been reading ‘The story of my experiments with Truth’, the autobiography of Gandhiji. There is one passage in it that summed up world, life and its purpose.
I think it is wrong to expect certainties in this world, where all else but God that is Truth is an uncertainty. All that appears and happens about and around us is uncertain, transient. But there is a Supreme Being hidden therein as a Certainty, and one would be blessed if one could catch a glimpse of that Certainty and hitch one’s wagon to it. The quest for that Truth is the summum bonum of life.
Truth or God is uncertain.
I would like to add a parallel thought to it. Einstein’s theory of relativity too states the same uncertainty as
All uniform motion is relative, and that there is no absolute and well-defined state of rest
At the quantum level, Science meets Philosophy. That is why Einstein is known to have said
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind
Great men think alike.
