“There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality. – Einstein
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.—Albert Einstein

The experience of separation is a kind of optical delusion of one’s consciousness
Albert Einstein | April 2007 (Vol. XX, No. 4)
A human being is part of the whole, called by us the “universe,” a part limited in time and space. One experiences oneself, one’s thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of one’s consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the Oneness of nature in its beauty.
This faith is and always will be the basic motivation behind every creative scientific idea
Leopold Infield and Albert Einstein | May 2007 (Vol. XX, No. 5)
Without faith that it is possible to render reality understandable by means of our theoretical constructs, without faith in an inner harmony of the world, there could be no science. This faith is and always will be the basic motivation behind every creative scientific idea. All our endeavors, all the dramatic conflicts between old and new ideas are supported by the eternal desire for knowledge, the unshakeable faith in cosmic harmony which becomes stronger the more difficulties loom before us.

Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.
O SON OF SPIRIT!
The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behooveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes.
