Ancient cosmology is the story of continuous creation and evolution. Yet, in truth, nothing has been created because consciousness was there before creation. Science was not invented to provide synthesis and meaning to explain consciousness. By its nature, science is a competitive culture of vested interests, conflicts, and politics. How can such an ego-driven establishment answer the world's need for unity?

Two main schools of thought have emerged to offer a solution to the present spiritual crisis. The fundamentalists claim to be able to make a scientific case for creationism, but "scientific creationism" is an oxymoron. Creation is inherently a religious dogma, without scientific evidence. This does not mean that science and religion are incompatible, because science does not ask whether the universe or mankind has a purpose. Rational people needn't worry that scientific knowledge conflicts with religious belief.

Contrasting fundamentalism is Monism, the metaphysical and theological view that all is one, that there are no fundamental divisions, and that a unified set of laws underlie all of nature. The idea that the universe is designed by an intelligent force is not new. Understanding that you are connected to the cosmos is inspiring. Why? Because you emit energy that affects Earth's vibration. Earth relays this energy to the sun; the sun relays it to Galactic Center, where it goes out to celestial bodies and vice versa. Monism makes you realize that we are connected to everything in the universe, some say a Multiverse.

Between the two extremes of Monism and fundamentalism there is a school of thought that, rather than deny consciousness or state that the universe is only consciousness, seeks to bring the two philosophies together. Scientist like Alwyn Scott concede that consciousness cannot be analyzed in the same way as a hydrogen atom, for consciousness is an awesome multifaceted miracle. It is so complex that it cannot be reduced to some fundamental theory or to one simple biological or chemical operation.

Is physics the best choice for understanding the individual mind, religion, behavior, culture, and human experience? Another alternative would be to create a Global Institution to study various human interests, including: history, comparative religion, physics, sociology, psychology, business, life sciences, cultural studies, spirituality, philosophy, education, cosmology, art, ecology, creativity, mythology, mysticism, and music- culminating into the field of study which Bernard Starr, Ph.D., founder, author and editor of a number of publications and books on psychology, aging and spirituality, has termed Omni-Conscience.

Such an "institution" would ideally integrate areas of human interest both past and present. The study of consciousness would impartially offer what tools each critical arena has to offer, and how to use and apply them usefully. The challenge facing physics is whether or not science will let go of its suppression of a world devoid of meaning for centuries. The study of consciousness is long overdue and should be the most practical alternative to the current scientific model. At this stage of our evolution an integrative study of consciousness may prove to be the only solution to the increasing complexity of our survival.
