The Return of "Soul" into Scientific Terms.

“It wasn’t until the nineteenth century that Faraday replaced the old idea of the soul with the new idea of the field. In the 1920s, Einstein extended the field concept to gravitation; the gravitational field coordinates and holds together the whole universe, fulfilling the role of the anima mundi, the soul of the world, in the old cosmology. Then fields were introduced in the heart of matter, as quantum matter fields. Fields were introduced into biology in the 1920s, in the form of morphogenetic fields, form-shaping fields, invisible formative fields, organizing the development of animals and plants, maintaining them and underlying their regeneration. So souls have been brought back into science in the guise of fields.” (Fox 81).

As can be seen above, across many fields of science is the discovery of the important and undeniable crucial missing elements that have no quantifiable explanations and is strong proof that science and spirituality be once more be inseparable as it has always been meant to be in the Universal order of harmony and existence.
