The spiritual cannot be understood in terms of the material, and vice versa. They are different worlds, different dimensions – incommensurable. But they can, obviously, both operate in the same space otherwise we would lack either body or spirit. Mind is that space – that inclusive container of both realms – and we need to recognize it as such, rather than the reluctant go-between it has been relegated to since the two dimensions became antagonistic. And, surprisingly, that antagonism developed when these realms started to become corrupted by the other: when the material world developed ethical compunction and the spiritual bowed to a calculated economy of tit-for-tat.
